Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan Latest Quartet in College Football Playoff Rankings

  • After Bye Week Does Michigan Remain Atop Big Ten Power Rankings

Following the Crimson Tide projected at No. 2 is Clemson after a 77-16 win over Louisville. Clemson remained at No. 2 and Notre Dame moved up a spot to No. 3.

On the outside looking in begins with No. 5 Georgia, No. 6 Oklahoma and after that it gets a little interesting.

Oklahoma should be able to take care of business at home the next two weekends against in-state rival Oklahoma State and last-place Kansas, which leaves the showdown at West Virginia (7-1, 5-1) the day after Thanksgiving as the defining game of the Sooners' season. It will likely finish the season as a top 10 team in the country, but it can't compete with the elite. The selection committee clearly values Clemson's strength of schedule, and the Tigers have another opportunity Saturday to punctuate their résumé by clinching the division with a victory over BC. Boston College will control its own destiny if it can pull off the upset. The 3 p.m. contest will be televised by CBS. The top-four teams in the final rankings December 2 will play in the national semifinals. So both teams have one loss, but West Virginia has the best win, the best loss, and it has played the more hard schedule.

West Virginia and Ohio State round out the top 10. The Bulldogs will see Alabama in the SEC title game as SEC East champions, but they can't look past their next three opponents starting this Sunday against Auburn. If one of them wins the Big 12 with one loss, OSU's chances at making the playoff are diminished significantly.

Dutch man hopes legal age change will get him more Tinder matches
According to the newspaper , the court is skeptical about Ratelband's case as there is no legal precedent in this area. He said on Thursday: "With this free (dom) of choice, choice of name, freeness of gender, I want to have my own age".

The Big 12 restarted its conference championship game last year after six-year hiatus. West Virginia had a huge win at Texas and will move up. But that's a long way from certain considering the Buckeyes are the lowest ranked one-loss team. UCF gave up a bunch of yards to Temple last week and stayed at No. 12 behind Kentucky, which was dominated by Georgia.

Athletic director Danny White and the Knights fans certainly don't want to hear this, but another flawless season probably won't even get UCF seriously considered for a spot in the semifinal - unless things get really weird.

#16 Mississippi State plays #1 Alabama this weekend.
