College Football Playoff Rankings: Ohio State Jumps To No. 2 In Week 12 Standings

2,523

There was plenty of movement in the latest College Football Playoff rankings after a wild Week 11 during which the No. 2, 3 and 4 ranked teams in the nation all lost.

Ohio State was the beneficiary of those losses by jumping into the top four and all the way up to No. 2. Michigan and Clemson remained in the top four despite losses last weekend. Washington also lost in Week 11, and they dropped outside of the top four to No. 6.

Alabama remained in the No. 1 spot, and it’s unlikely the Crimson Tide fall out of the top four unless they lose each of their last two games.

The top four teams advance to the playoff, which determines the national champion.

Here are the new CFP rankings entering Week 12.

1. Alabama (10-0)
