Final College Football Playoff Rankings for 2019 season released

By Kevin Kelley -

The final set of College Football Playoff Rankings for the 2019 season have been released by the selection committee, and LSU has moved back to the top spot.

The LSU Tigers moved back into first place after destroying the then No. 4 Georgia Bulldogs 37-10 in the SEC Championship Game. Georgia dropped one spot to No. 5.

Ohio State, which defeated Wisconsin 34-21 to win the Big Ten Championship, dropped from the top spot to No. 2.

The Clemson Tigers crushed Virginia 62-17 to win the ACC Championship and held onto the No. 3 spot, while Oklahoma moved into the No. 4 position after defeating Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game, 30-23 in overtime.

Rounding out the top ten in the final College Football Playoff Rankings are Georgia (5), Oregon (6), Baylor (7), Wisconsin (8), Florida (9), and Penn State (10).

Memphis remained No. 17 and finished as the highest ranked team from a Group of Five conference. That earned them a bid to the Goodyear Cotton Bowl to face Penn State.
