The fourth College Football Playoff Rankings of the 2016 season have been released. Alabama remains No. 1, while Nos. 6-10 remain very intriguing.


The 12-person selection committee tasked with the challenge of putting together the third College Football Playoff released its fourth top 25 of the 2016 college football season on Tuesday night, and the group unsurprisingly determined that unbeaten Alabama is the best team in the nation.

Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide are the only undefeated team from the Power Five conferences, while Western Michigan—the lone undefeated squad from the Group of Five—continues to get overlooked by the committee at No. 21.

Meanwhile, Nos. 2-4 remained the same, as Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson kept their places from last week. Meanwhile, Washington moved up to No. 5 after Louisville was throttled by Houston last Thursday night.

Wisconsin, Penn State, Oklahoma and Colorado each moved up one spot this week following the Cardinals’ loss. Surprisingly, Bobby Petrino’s squad only fell to No. 11.

This was the fourth of six sets of rankings, but what really matters is the final one that gets released on December 4. But if the season ended today, the matchups for the College Football Playoff would be No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Clemson in the Peach Bowl and No. 2 Ohio State vs. No. 3 Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl. The winners of those two semifinal matchups would meet in Tampa on January 9 for the national championship.

How much will these rankings change after this weekend if they even change at all?

What we do know is that the regular season is (sadly) winding down, so the four-team playoff is creeping ever so closer.
