College Football Playoff Rankings – November 16

The CFP rankings are out for the second week of official rankings by the playoff committee and 12th week this season. The dust had not settled on the initial rankings before we all saw the #2, #3, and #4 ranked teams lose last week unexpectedly. So is college football. Unsurprisingly, Alabama remains the overall #1 ranked team. The other teams currently “in” the playoff include Ohio State at #2, Michigan at #3, and Clemson at #4. Now on the outside of the top four include Louisville at #5 and Washington at #6. There is still a ton of football to be played on our way to the playoffs to include Ohio State and Michigan facing off, and Alabama will still need to get past Auburn to wrap up SEC regular season play as we get deeper into the season. In the mean-time, if you would like to check out the printable 2016-17 college football bowl schedule or the college football playoff schedule, we have those posted for fans to enjoy!
