The College Football Playoff Rankings for Nov. 25 have been released by the Selection Committee and the Alabama Crimson Tide remained in first place.
Alabama is followed by Oregon (2), Florida State (3), and Mississippi State (4). Just outside the top four are TCU (5), Ohio State (6), and Baylor (7).
“This has been a week of stability in the rankings, especially at the top. Given the way the games were played over the past week, there was very little change,” said selection chairman Jeff Long. “As important as the rankings are at the top, I want to continue to emphasize we focus on all 25. Our job is to rank 1-25 and we take that very seriously. We spend a great deal of time talking about each team that we rank.”
Two Group of Five teams have entered the College Football Playoff Rankings this week. Boise State (9-2) is 23rd and Marshall (11-0) is 24th.
