College Football Playoff Releases the Penultimate Selection Committee Rankings

GRAPEVINE, Texas – The College Football Playoff Selection Committee announced today its sixth top 25 ranking.

The selection committee will prepare the final set of rankings 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.

“Several factors came into play as the committee compiled its rankings this week and as we always do, we started with a clean sheet of paper,” said selection chairman Jeff Long.  “That means we start from scratch each week and evaluate small groups of teams against one another and create the rankings through seven rounds of voting.  The committee is a group of college football experts whose task each week is to take a fresh look at the rankings 1-25.”

The selection committee will hold its last meeting of the season 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.
