With the official college football playoff rankings coming out Tuesday, this is our best guess as to how the committee will rank the 25 teams. -

As always, a few things to keep in mind …

1. This is simply a snapshot. We can see how the committee is thinking early on, and we can get a first look at what it seems to like, but it gets thrown out next week and the process starts over.

2. In general, the committee over the first five years of this thing loves big wins and hates ugly losses. You can lose, but don’t get wiped out. At the end of the day, the committee can like any team it wants to, just because. However … big wins, big wins, big wins.

Ohio State, LSU top initial College Football Playoff rankings; Clemson at No. 5

  Ohio State, LSU top initial College Football Playoff rankings; Clemson at No. 5 Joe Burrow and LSU are ranked No. 2 heading into their trip to face No. 3 Alabama.It is the first time in 25 edition’s of the committee’s rankings that Clemson has not been in the top four.

College Football Playoff rankings : Top 25 for Week 13. The new CFP rankings will be out on Tuesday, Nov. Week 11 of the college football season potentially provided more clarity to the College Football College Football Playoff rankings predictions: Top 25 projections for Week 13.

The next set of College Football Playoff rankings will be out in two days, so until then, we’ll speculate on what the committee might do. A handful of teams got knocked out of playoff contention on Saturday in what were de facto elimination games. Kentucky and LSU are out in all likelihood, while Alabama

3. Each spot in the order is argued over. It’s not just a random list thrown together in a room. Everyone has to agree that team X needs to get put ahead of teams Y and Z. You might not agree with the rankings, but each spot in the top 25 has been meticulously debated.

And after all of that, it’s about feel, eye-test, and resumé.

So what will they be? Here’s the best guess for what the third College Football Playoff rankings will be on Tuesday night.

25. Virginia Tech Hokies 7-3 (NR)

Here’s your answer for the ACC’s problem of who’ll end up in the Orange Bowl. Assuming Clemson is in the College Football Playoff, the next highest-ranked ACC team will be in the big game, and Virginia Tech is two wins away – Pitt, at Virginia – from getting there.

24. Texas A&M Aggies 7-3 (NR)

It’s finally time finally recognize Texas A&M for its horrible, horrible schedule break. Yeah, it’s 7-3, but those three losses were to CFP No. 3 Clemson, No. 5 Alabama, and No. 12 Auburn. The blowout win over South Carolina will have to be enough to move into the rankings.

College Football Playoff projection: Alabama's chances still high after LSU loss

  College Football Playoff projection: Alabama's chances still high after LSU loss College Football Playoff projection: Alabama's chances still high after LSU lossAlthough it did take a sizable hit, Alabama still has a 40 percent chance to make the playoff but only a nine percent chance to win it all, according to ESPN’s Playoff Predictor. Those numbers plunged from last week, when the team had a 72 and 22 percent chance, respectively, but the Crimson Tide are still No. 4 on this list.

Here's a prediction of how the College Football Playoff rankings could look on Tuesday, Nov. Below, I project how the third CFP rankings could look before the 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 19, announcement. The committee will continue to rank its Top 25 every week until the final rankings on

23. SMU Mustangs 9-1 (NR)

The Mustangs were 25th in the first round of rankings, dropped out after struggling to get by East Carolina 59-51, and will slide back in after a week off. The win over TCU is still a key part of the puzzle, but the record and the offense will be enough to be ranked.

22. Appalachian State Mountaineers 9-1 (25)

Now the Mountaineers will move up after getting into the top 25 last week. The wins over North Carolina and South Carolina are still great for a Group of Five program, and blowing away Georgia State 56-27 was terrific. Don’t be stunned if ASU is deep in the chase for the Cotton Bowl at the end of the process.

21. Oklahoma State Cowboys 7-3 (22)

The committee liked Oklahoma State enough to put it in the top 25 from the start. Now on a three-game winning streak, and after a blowout win over Kansas – everything sets up for a big finish. Get by West Virginia on the road, and the Oklahoma game will be for a chance to screw up the Sooners’ CFP hopes.

Brett McMurphy’s College Football Bowl Projections After Week 12

  Brett McMurphy’s College Football Bowl Projections After Week 12 The Big 12 isn't doing any favors for Oklahoma. Well…I had a change of heart.

Jerry Palm takes a stab at what the CFP Rankings would look like if they were released a week early.

Following a rare week in which no Top 10 teams suffered a loss, the top 40 percent of the 25-team College Football Playoff rankings remain unchanged. And while that does nothing to affect the playoff picture, it did have a big impact on the projections for the New Year's Six bowls.

20. Boise State Broncos 9-1 (21)

Shhhhhhhhh. This really might be your Group of Five representative in the New Year’s Six Cotton Bowl slot. Watch out for Cincinnati and Memphis screw each other up – they’ll likely have to play twice – and Boise State will keep on moving up. But for now, being in the top 20 is fine.

19. Iowa Hawkeyes 7-3 (20)

Is it possible to leapfrog the one-loss Group of Fivers? Iowa should – the three losses are to CFP No. 14 Wisconsin and No. 15 Michigan on the road, and to No. 9 Penn State in a close battle. And now they beat the unbeaten No. 8 Minnesota team, but they’ll still likely be behind …

18. Memphis Tigers 9-1 (18)

The Tigers won four straight with a convincing win over Houston on the road. They have to keep winning, though. Lose, and the door is open for SMU to jump into the AAC West lead. Everything for MU is steamrolling towards a showdown against …

17. Cincinnati Bearcats 9-1 (17)

Some will argue that the Bearcats should be higher than this, but they struggled WAY too much with a mediocre USF team in a 20-17 win. All that really matters is that they’ll still be the top-ranked Group of Five team, giving it the inside track for the Cotton Bowl.

16. Auburn Tigers 7-3 (12)

Yeah, the Tigers now have three losses, but remembering that the committee argues the merits of each team and each position, they can’t – and likely won’t – drop too far after a close loss to last week’s CFP No. 4 team, Georgia. Remember, the other two losses came to CFP No. 11 Florida and, or course, No. 1 LSU.

15. Baylor Bears 9-1 (13)

Remember, these rankings aren’t like other polls. It’s not as simple as win and move up, lose and move down – there’s an outside shot the Bears don’t move down at all. The committee will like the first half against Oklahoma just enough to not punish the Bears too much – they won’t be any lower than 14, if they don’t move up.

14. Notre Dame Fighting Irish 8-2 (16)

The Fighting Irish can’t and won’t move ahead of Michigan, but after obliterating the CFP No. 23 Navy team 52-20, they’ll slide into the top 14 and hang around enough to be in range for a New Year’s Six bowl consideration.

13. Michigan Wolverines 8-2 (15)

Unlike the other rankings, the College Football Playoff committee is old enough to remember when the Wolverines were blasted by Wisconsin. A New Year’s Six game is still possible by winning out, finishing up with a win over Ohio State. At the very least, now they’ve positioned themselves up for a solid Big Ten bowl slot.

12. Wisconsin Badgers 8-2 (14)

This is actually too high for a team that’s shakier than it might seem, but the convincing win over Nebraska on the road – combined with the now-stronger looking win over Iowa two weeks ago – will move the Badgers up a few spots.

College Football Playoff Rankings Projection, Week 4

  College Football Playoff Rankings Projection, Week 4 College Football Playoff Rankings Projection, Week 4As always, a few things to keep in mind …

How would the College Football Playoff committee rank the teams after a wild and crazy week ? Bt the time the rankings come out on Halloween, Penn State will have played Michigan and Ohio State. As of now, the Nittany Lions haven’t done anything and are hardly worthy of the No. 2 ranking in the

College Football Playoff projections : It’s Clemson, Alabama and a bit of chaos. By Cade Massey and Rufus Peabody. This year’s first rankings come out Tuesday night. We don’t expect a lot of surprises at the top, but outside the top few teams, there’s quite a bit of uncertainty.

11. Florida Gators 9-2 (11)

The Gators should actually be ranked higher than this considering their two losses came to CFP No. 1 LSU and No. 4 Georgia. The win over Auburn will matter more and more – technically, Florida should be ahead of Oregon in this. A spot in a New Year’s Six game will be a near-lock if it beats Florida State convincingly.

10. Penn State Nittany Lions 9-1 (9)

The Nittany Lions weren’t anything special in the win over Indiana, but the win might just be enough to move up a few more spots than this. It won’t make a difference where they are.

Beat Ohio State this week, and they’ll rocket up into the top five with the College Football Playoff there for the taking by beating Rutgers and then Wisconsin or Minnesota in the Big Ten Championship.

9. Minnesota Golden Gophers 9-1 (8)

The loss to Iowa was just good enough to stay ranked in the top ten somewhere. The Gophers still control their own destiny – it doesn’t matter where they’re ranked. They might be behind Penn State – despite the win two weeks ago – and it’s fine.

Beat Northwestern, beat Wisconsin, beat the Ohio State/Penn State winner in the Big Ten Championship, and the 12-1 Big Ten champ will absolutely be in the College Football Playoff.

8. Oklahoma Sooners 9-1 (8)

There’s a chance the win over an undefeated Baylor on the road will be enough to move the Sooners into the top six. However, it took a massive comeback to get the win, right after it took a late stop to survive an almost-collapse to Iowa State. They have the resumé, win, but they’re not playing as well as …

College football bowl projections Week 14: Utah, Oklahoma, Alabama in Playoff hunt

  College football bowl projections Week 14: Utah, Oklahoma, Alabama in Playoff hunt Sporting News' Week 13 bowl projections are in ahead of the second College Football Playoff rankings. Which one loss team is in?The Playoff picture saw some major changes after Oregon’s loss to Arizona State. That opens up a wide-open debate for the No. 4 final spot.

Then you’re ready for the 2018 College Football Playoff rankings after Week 11. LSU was No. 3 in last week ’s poll and got trounced by Alabama, leaving a Below we’ve listed our projected rankings , each team’s College Football Playoff chances projected by FiveThirtyEight.com, and their national

Alabama tops the Week 3 College Football Playoff power ranking . We are two weeks into the college football season and outside of some close calls, and some head-to-head matchups of top-25 teams, there haven't been a lot of shake-ups in the rankings yet.

7. Utah Utes 9-1 (7)

There might not be quite enough of an argument in that room to move the Utes into the top six, but it’s dominating, it’ll beat Arizona and Colorado to get to 11-1 with a trip to the Pac-12 Championship, and then it’s on. Go 12-1 with a Power Five title, and it’ll take a new precedent to be set to keep the Utes out. For now, the ranking doesn’t matter … win out, and then let’s talk.

6. Alabama Crimson Tide 9-1 (5)

Relax … this might be a placeholder spot. For now, call this a wait-and-see ranking. How well will Alabama play with Mac Jones under center? There won’t be any problems against Western Carolina, but if the Crimson Tide obliterate Auburn at Auburn, all of a sudden, the committee will have its justification to make the move up. If Georgia loses to LSU, the committee will be able to say Bama beat Auburn, and …

5. Oregon Ducks 9-1 (6)

Oregon didn’t beat Auburn. Even though that happened to start the season, that still might matter when it comes to deciding between what would be the Pac-12 champ if the Ducks win out, and a Bama team that lost to the No. 1 team in college football. However, for now, the Tua Tagovailoa injury will be enough to drop the Tide and move up Oregon.

4. Georgia Bulldogs 9-1 (4)

The committee liked Georgia enough to put it four last week, and it’s sure not going to make a move now. Beating Auburn was great, beating Texas A&M this week would be fantastic, but … the SEC East champ has to beat (likely) LSU in the SEC Championship. Otherwise it’s off to the Sugar Bowl.

3. Clemson Tigers 11-0 (3)

The Tigers will be stuck here as long as Ohio State and LSU keep on winning. They’re not going to be No. 1 unless the Buckeyes and SEC Tigers both lose, otherwise their ceiling is the No. 2 spot – 2 or 3 doesn’t matter.

2. Ohio State Buckeyes 10-0 (2)

There’s no beef … for now. Ohio State is playing better than anyone else, but it just doesn’t have the wins LSU can boast about. However, that’s about to change. If the Buckeyes obliterate Penn State, at Michigan, and blast Minnesota or Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, that might be enough to finish No. 1.

Ohio St jumps LSU to No. 1 in CFP rankings with 2 weeks left

  Ohio St jumps LSU to No. 1 in CFP rankings with 2 weeks left Ohio State jumped LSU to No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings with two weeks left to go before selection Sunday. LSU slipped to second Tuesday night and Clemson remained No. 3 while Georgia held on at four. If playoff history holds form, three of those top four teams will reach the semifinals. Alabama remained No. 5 in the selection committee’s third rankings, with Utah moving up a spot to No. 6. The Utes are the only Pac-12 team in the top 10 after Oregon dropped eight spots to 14th.Oklahoma is seventh followed by Minnesota, Baylor and Penn State.

Three -loss USC flew right by one-loss West Virginia to No. 13. And Wisconsin didn't move an inch from No. 7 despite winning by a 45-point margin in a But what will the Top Four look like in three weeks when it actually matters? Ohio State and Louisville are in the Top Five for now, but can either one stay

1. LSU Tigers 10-0 (1)

There will be some discussion about how miserable the defense has looked over the last few weeks – giving up over 400 yards through the air against Alabama, and then over 400 rushing yards to Ole Miss – but there’s still no arguing against the resumé. As long as LSU gets to the SEC Championship at 12-0, it’ll be in.
