The College Football Playoff Rankings for Nov. 28 of the 2017 season have been released by the selection committee, and Clemson is the new top-ranked team.
Clemson rolled over rival South Carolina 34-10 on Saturday and will now face No. 7 Miami in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte.
Auburn, which upset then No. 1 Alabama 26-14 in the Iron Bowl, has moved up to No. 2. The Tigers, who face (6) Georgia in the SEC Championship game, are followed by (3) Oklahoma and (4) Wisconsin.
Just outside of the top four are (5) Alabama, (6) Georgia, (7) Miami, and (8) Ohio State. Each of those teams can vault into the top four with wins on Saturday, with Alabama having a lesser chance due to being idle.
UCF moved up one spot to No. 14 and is the highest ranked team from a Group of Five conference.
