The third College Football Playoff rankings are out. However, nothing changed in the top four compared to last week’s ranking.

The Clemson Tigers continue to be the No. 1 team, as they’ve been for the past three weeks. The Tigers are undefeated on the team.

Some people thought that after the Tigers defeated the woeful 3-7 Syracuse Orange 37-27 in Syracuse, New York, the Tigers would drop. However, they have the best win of any of the team’s in the Top 4.

The second-ranked team is the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide are 9-1 on the season, and has been the second-ranked team since they upset the 2nd-ranked LSU Tigers a few weeks ago.

The Ohio State Buckeyes, last year’s College Football playoff winner, is third. They haven’t been the same team as last year’s team, and they’ve had to flip-flop at the quarterback position all season.

First, Cardale Jones began the season, before J.T. Barrett took over. Then, once Barrett received a one-game suspension following his OVI on the morning of Halloween, Jones was forced back into action against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish is fourth on the list. The Fighting Irish is 9-1 on the season, but lost a two-point game to the Tigers.

Some believe that this loss is more important than any of the Golden-domers wins this season.

On the outside-looking in are the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Both teams are perfect on the season at 10-0.

“If Iowa wins out, they don’t have anything to worry about,” ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit said.
