The College Football Playoff Rankings for Dec. 2 have been released by the Selection Committee, and the Alabama Crimson Tide remained in first place for the fourth straight week.
Alabama is followed by Oregon (2), TCU (3), and Florida State (4). Just outside the top four are Ohio State (5), Baylor (6), and Arizona (7).
One Group of Five team is in the College Football Playoff Rankings this week. Boise State (10-2) is 22nd.
“Several factors came into play as the committee compiled its rankings this week and as we always do, we started with a clean sheet of paper,” said selection chairman Jeff Long. “That means we start from scratch each week and evaluate small groups of teams against one another and create the rankings through seven rounds of voting. The committee is a group of college football experts whose task each week is to take a fresh look at the rankings 1-25.”
