The 2019 college football season is entering its final full month which means the College Football Playoff rankings are set to be released. On Tuesday, November 5, the first playoff rankings of the year will drop as we learn where teams stand in their efforts to reach the final four.
The committee members will convene in person on Mondays and Tuesdays leading up to the release of the weekly rankings until the end of the year.
“We’ve enjoyed five years of the College Football Playoff, and the selection committee is looking forward to the start of our sixth season,” said committee chair Rob Mullens, Athletics Director at the University of Oregon, prior to the season. “It is always good to have the full group together. Our meetings this week were productive and thorough.”
The final selection committee rankings of the 2019 season will be released on Selection Day, Sunday, December 8. The committee will also announce the matchups for the Playoff Semifinals at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, as well as the New Year’s Six bowl pairings.
