Selection Committee Releases Top 25 Rankings of Games Played Through November 1

GRAPEVINE, Texas – The College Football Playoff announced today its second installment of the selection committee top 25 rankings.

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

“As we said last time, our meeting this week would begin with a clean sheet of paper, and it did,” said selection chairman Jeff Long.  “We firmly believe this is one of the strengths of the committee.  We have twelve individuals who work each week to decide who the best teams are in college football.  We are not bound by last week’s results and we watch the games with a fresh perspective each week.”

The selection committee will continue to meet in person for the remainder of the season to review game action and issue its new rankings.

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