College Football Playoff Rankings for Nov. 26, 2019 released

By Kevin Kelley -

The fourth set of College Football Playoff Rankings for the 2019 season have been released by the selection committee, and Ohio State has taken over the top spot.

The Ohio State Buckeyes, previously ranked No. 2, moved into first-place after defeating then No. 8 Penn State 28-17. The LSU Tigers dropped one spot from the top position even though they crushed unranked Arkansas, 56-20.

The remainder of the top five remains the same as the Week 13 rankings. Clemson is 3rd, Georgia is 4th, and Alabama is 5th.

Rounding out the top ten in this week’s College Football Playoff Rankings are Utah (6), Oklahoma (7), Minnesota (8), Baylor (9), and Penn State (10).

Memphis (18th) is again the highest ranked team from a Group of Five conference. Three other teams are just behind the Tigers — Cincinnati (19), Boise State (20), and Appalachian State (25). Check out the full CFP Top 25 rankings below.

Complete disrespect of App State!

Losing to Georgia Southern is a better than losing to Duke AND Boston College.

Common opponent, North Carolina, App State best in regulation. Virginia Tech has to go into how many OTs?!?

Nothing against VT, but the voters are fighting logic.

The Committee says that strength of schedule matters, The committee talks about wins over top 25 teams a lot.

Ohio St, Utah, Minnesota and Baylor are all on the short list of teams not scheduling or playing a Power 5 team this year.

Yet Ohio St gets ranked #1

Alabama and Utah have beaten no Top 25 Teams

Oklahoma has beaten two Baylor and Iowa St
Minnesota beat one Penn St
Baylor beat Iowa St and Oklahoma St

Yet Utah is the higher ranked team 1 loss teams?

I think the the whole system is hogwash they will put whoever they think will bring the most money and views in the playoff. The way they do the rankings makes no sense most of the time.
