A look at the hypothetical lines for the College Football Playoff following the fourth release of the rankings.


No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Clemson played a classic in last season’s College Football Playoff championship game, and with the fourth edition of the CFP rankings, the two are currently pegged to meet in the semifinals. The Crimson Tide, who beat the Tigers 45-40 to capture the national title, would be favored by 11 points if the rematch happened, according to Vegas betting expert RJ Bell, who released hypothetical lines on Tuesday night following the rankings.

In the other semifinal, No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan would meet again this season, with the Buckeyes favored by 3.5 points over the Wolverines. However, a rematch is extremely unlikely as the two rivals, each with one loss, meet this Saturday in Columbus for the regular-season finale.

Alabama had a lot of question marks coming into the season, including who would be under center, but true freshman Jalen Hurts has taken control of the Tide offense and not looked back. Hurts has thrown for 2,168 yards and 19 touchdowns while also rushing for 803 yards and 11 scores and could earn an invite to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony.

The Crimson Tide are the only team of the four to not have a slip-up this season. Clemson fell to Pittsburgh at home, while Ohio State was upset by Penn State in State College. Michigan was stunned by Iowa two weeks ago on the road.

The two College Football Playoff semifinals will take place on December 31 in Atlanta, Georgia and Glendale, Arizona, with the national championship game being played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
