Projected top 25 College Football Playoff rankings prior to the fourth release from the CFP committee for the 2016 season.


The fourth batch of College Football Playoff rankings will be revealed on Tuesday night, and fans should not expect to see a ton of change from last week after a couple of top contenders avoided being upset on Saturday.

Ohio State was pushed to the limit by Michigan State, which failed to convert a late two-point conversion and dropped a 17-16 contest to the Buckeyes. Meanwhile, Michigan had a rough first half against Indiana but was able to take control in the second half to avoid an upset loss to the Hoosiers. All eyes are now on the Michigan-Ohio State showdown next Saturday in Columbus.

In ACC land, Clemson claimed the ACC Atlantic division once again, so the Tigers will play in the league title game in two weeks. If the Tigers beat South Carolina next week and claim the ACC crown, Dabo Swinney’s squad will once again get into the CFP.

And out West, Washington put behind its loss to USC last week by dispatching Arizona State. A Pac-12 title is still in play for U-Dub, but how would a one-loss Huskies squad stack up against teams such as Wisconsin and Penn State, which could win their league as well? The selection committee values conference championships, but would a two-loss Big Ten squad (or potentially a one-loss non-champ Ohio State) have the edge over the Huskies?

What won’t help Louisville is being dominated by Houston last Thursday night, as the Cougars knocked the Cardinals out of the CFP race. How far will Bobby Petrino’s squad fall this week, and where will Tom Herman’s team be ranked?

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s release, here is a projection of how the committee will rank the top 25 teams in the country.
