College Football Playoff Rankings - Week 12

With shakeups in the lower half of the latest College Football Playoff Rankings, the top 4 teams held firm.

With only three more weeks left in the regular College Football season, the playoff picture is looking more clear. There were no changes in the selection committee's Top 4 and with the exception of Baylor and Stanford, the same teams are looking to crash the party. 

Clemson has held the top spot for another week fending off a challenege from Syracuse last week. The Tigers have Wake Forest, South Carolina and the ACC championship standing in their way of making their first College Football Playoff.

Alabama Has looked impressive after the early loss to Ole Miss and lands in the No. 2 position for the second week in a row. With a matchup against Charleston Southern and the Iron Bowl standing in their way of an SEC Championship game, the Tide hold their own destiny for making the playoff.
