Where Georgia is ranked in latest College Football Playoff poll

Alabama down but not out in College Football Playoff race

The Badgers opened at No. 9, moved up to No. 8 in Week 2, moved up to No. 5 in Week 3, stayed at No. 5 in Week 4 and moved up this week thanks to losses by then-No. It will be a rematch of a game handedly won by Auburn just a few weeks ago, but the victor is practically guaranteed to get one of the four available spots in this year's College Football Playoff.

No. 2 Auburn (10-2), No. 3 Oklahoma (11-1), No. 4 Wisconsin (12-0), No. 5 Alabama (11-1) and No. 6 Georgia (11-1) are all ahead of Miami. Georgia (11-1), 7. Miami (FL) (10-1), 8. The Buckeyes' two losses would be against playoff-bound Oklahoma and an embarrassing, inexplicable dud at Iowa, compared with wins over bowl teams Army, Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Auburn and Georgia will collide in the SEC Championship Game, the first to be played in the new Mercedes-Benz Dome in Atlanta.

The third-ranked Sooners will be locked in a rematch for their conference title game as Oklahoma will face TCU for the Big 12 championship.

The final rankings are set to be revealed at 11 a.m. Sunday on ESPN. Last year, Clemson was never No. 1 in the CFP Poll, then defeated No. 1 Alabama in the National Championship game.

Oklahoma and Wisconsin control their own playoff destiny, but the same can't be said for their conference championship opponents. Oklahoma and Wisconsin rounded out the top four. Ohio State would be coming off four straight wins and a highly-valued conference championship, but one of its two losses was an unexpected beatdown at the hands of a lesser team.

The debate between what to do with a two-loss Ohio State with the Big Ten championship is one that has been brought up for a few weeks now. One of the reasons the Buckeyes made the field a year ago but Big Ten-champion Penn State did not was a blowout loss for the Nittany Lions. Unfortunately, we get a little caught up in the madness sometimes and lose sight of the game itself. Miami is now 18/1, while TCU is 85/1 and USC is a 100/1 long shot to win it all.

A win on Saturday would likely vault either the Trojans or Horned Frogs over Penn State. "We take care of our business, as we have so far, good things are going to happen". The Bulldogs probably would face No. 14 UCF, which is guaranteed a spot in a New Year's Six Bowl as the highest-ranked Group of Five champion.

The national semifinals are set for January 1, at 4pm at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, and at 7:45 p.m.at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

Notre Dame fell from No. 8 to No. 15 after losing at Stanford last weekend.

Orange Bowl: No. 7 Miami vs. The Huskies entered last week's Apple Cup ranked 17th, four spots behind rival Washington State, but Washington's decisive 41-14 victory lifted the Huskies to No. 13 and dropped the Cougars to No. 18.
