College Football Playoff Rankings: Oklahoma, Iowa Join Top 4; Notre Dame Drops

So long, Notre Dame. Welcome, Oklahoma and Iowa.

There were significant changes in the College Football Rankings on Tuesday with only two weeks remaining in the regular season.

The Clemson Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide remained at No. 1 and 2, respectively, but two new teams joined them in the top four after Ohio State’s loss to Michigan State and Notre Dame’s unimpressive win over Boston College. The Oklahoma Sooners jumped up to No. 3, and the Iowa Hawkeyes were right behind them at No. 4.

No. 5 Michigan State, No. 6 Notre Dame, No. 7 Baylor, No. 8 Ohio State, No. 9 Stanford and No. 10 Michigan rounded out the top 10. Navy remained the top ranked Group of Five team at No. 15.
