UM Stays At No. 4 In Playoff Rankings

Texas sneaks into top 15 in latest College Football Playoff rankings

There wasn't so much as a shuffling in the top 10, in spite of Oklahoma's woeful defense on Saturday in the win against Oklahoma State. Add Michigan and Northwestern in the Big Ten championship game to that resume, and suddenly a season of struggles in Columbus, Ohio, won't look so bad at all.

The committee's top 10 remained the same - Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and Georgia were the top five.

Alabama is No. 1 for the 15th time in 28 rankings. Since No. 4 MI is the projected conference champion and already in a semifinal, the next highest-ranked Big Ten team would be No. 10 Ohio State.

No. 3 Notre Dame is making a trip to the Bronx where it will take on an upstart Syracuse program.

The Big 12 got some solid respect from the committee.

Pitt, who Clemson is likely to play in the ACC championship game on December 1, is also unranked.

Clemson has two wins over teams now ranked in the top 25 in No. 12 Syracuse and No. 20 Boston College.

Penn State football checked in at No. 14 in this week's College Football Playoff rankings.

8 p.m. ET: College Football Playoff semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl: No. 3 Notre Dame vs. Last year, Alabama seemed like a default pick at 11-1 over Ohio State and USC. On Thursday, three games are slated, as Toledo travels to Kent State, North Texas hosts FAU, and Houston battles Tulane in a key game for the AAC West. Boise State at New Mexico and Memphis at SMU headline the action on Friday night.
