Alabama rises to No. 2 in College Football Playoff rankings
The College Football Playoff committee moved Alabama higher than its Associated Press ranking for the second straight week, naming the Crimson Tide the No. 2 team in the country on Tuesday night.
Nick Saban’s team was ranked No. 3 in the AP Top 25 this past Sunday.
The CFP committee shocked viewers last Tuesday when it placed Alabama in the Playoff picture at No. 4 (‘Bama was No. 7 in the AP poll at the time). The Tide responded by shellacking then-No. 2 LSU, 30-16, in Tuscaloosa on Saturday night.
Clemson claimed the committee’s top spot this Tuesday, followed by Alabama, Ohio State and Notre Dame.
Here’s the full list:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Oklahoma State
- Michigan State
- Florida State
- Mississippi State
- North Carolina
