The College Football Playoff Rankings for Nov. 27, 2018 have been released by the selection committee, and the Georgia Bulldogs have entered the Top Four.
Alabama remains in first place, and the Crimson Tide are followed by (2) Clemson, (3) Notre Dame, (4) Georgia, (5) Oklahoma, and (6) Ohio State.
Conference championship games this weekend will ultimately decide who gets into the College Football Playoff. No. 4 Georgia takes on No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson faces unranked Pitt, No. 5 Oklahoma plays No. 14 Texas, and No. 6 Ohio State goes up against No. 21 Northwestern.
UCF moved up one spot to No. 8 and remains the highest ranked team from a Group of Five conference. If the Knights beat Memphis on Saturday, they would earn their second-consecutive big to a New Year’s Six game.
Should UCF lose, then the winner of the Fresno State-Boise State game would take a spot in the New Year’s Six.
Missouri (24) and Fresno State (25) both entered the rankings this week, while Utah State (21) and Pitt (24) each dropped out.
