Georgia holds on to No. 4 in this week's College Football Playoff rankings
ATHENS, Ga. - Only some slight shuffling in the College Football Playoff rankings this week after all the top teams took a win.
Ohio State (11-0) and LSU (11-0) traded spots with the Buckeyes now on top.
Clemson (11-0), and Georgia (10-1) continue to hold the third and fourth spots respectively.
If playoff history holds form, three of those top four teams will reach the semifinals.
Georgia knows it needs to keep winning if the team wants to stay in until the final rankings come Dec. 8.
The good news is this weekend the Bulldogs take on the Yellow Jackets (2-6) where they are favored by 29 points as long some Old-Fashioned Hate doesn't get in the way.
The big test for the Dawgs comes Dec. 7 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium as they take on the now No. 2 ranked LSU in the SEC Championship game.
Alabama continues to sit in the fifth spot.
In each of the first five years of the playoff, three of the top four teams in the rankings heading into rivalry weekend reached the semifinals, including the No. 1 team every time.
Here's a look a the full list:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Notre Dame
- Boise State
- Oklahoma State
- Iowa State
- Virginia Tech
- Appalachian State
