College Football Playoff Rankings: First Rankings of 2019 Season

The first College Football Playoff rankings of the 2019 season were released on Tuesday, November 5, and there was a bit of a surprise in the top four. Alabama and LSU have been ranked No. 1 in the AP and Coaches Poll for the past few weeks, but it was another program that earned the top spot when the selection committee unveiled their rankings.

Sitting in the top spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff Rankings of the year is the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The LSU Tigers checked in at No. 2, while the Alabama Crimson Tide sit at No. 3. Rounding out the top four was another surprise with the Penn State Nittany Lions securing the final playoff spot. That means the undefeated, reigning national champion Clemson Tigers are on the outside looking in at No. 5.

Georgia, Oregon, Utah, and Oklahoma are also within striking distance as they sit inside of the top 10.
