Clemson No. 1 in College Football Playoff Rankings
30 November, 2017, 14:01
But with the Tigers No. 1 in the CFP rankings there is at least a chance they could be in the top four even with a loss to the Hurricanes.
Alabama (11-1) fell from No. 1 to fifth after losing to Auburn, and Georgia (11-1) was sixth. That loss dropped the Hurricanes from No. 2 to No. 7, and their only hope at getting back into the top four begins with a win in Saturday's ACC title game against Clemson.

The SEC Championship and the ACC Championship games essentially are play-in games. The Pac-12 is not going to get a team in the playoff, and with the Rose Bowl reserved as a semifinal game, the Pac-12 champ has to go somewhere else; the Fiesta Bowl feels like the best fit to me. Oklahoma plays No. 11 TCU in Arlington, Texas, in the Big 12 title game.
The Playoff was instituted in 2014 and has yet to feature two teams from the same conference in a single Playoff. The Sooners have wins over No. 8 Ohio State, No. 11 TCU and No. 19 Oklahoma State, but the committee has been reluctant to show the Sooners - and their mediocre defense - total respect, clearly preferring Clemson ... and now a two-loss Auburn.
