College Football Playoff Releases Fifth Selection Committee Rankings

GRAPEVINE, Texas – The College Football Playoff Selection Committee announced today the fifth installment of its top 25 rankings.

The selection committee will prepare two more rankings this season, including the final set on Selection Day, Sunday, December 7.  The top four teams in the final rankings will play in the Playoff Semifinals on January 1, 2015, at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual and the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

“This has been a week of stability in the rankings, especially at the top.  Given the way the games were played over the past week, there was very little change,” said selection chairman Jeff Long.  “As important as the rankings are at the top, I want to continue to emphasize we focus on all 25.  Our job is to rank 1-25 and we take that very seriously.  We spend a great deal of time talking about each team that we rank.”

The selection committee will continue to evaluate teams and will meet in person again December 1-2 to issue its new rankings before the final meeting December 5-7.  The playoff pairings, New Year’s bowl pairings and final top 25 rankings will be announced Sunday, December 7.

The complete rankings are attached and can also be found on the official website of the College Football Playoff atwww.collegefootballplayoff.com.
