College Football Playoff Rankings Released park

The Selection Committee for the College Football Playoff (CFP) released its sixth rankings on Tuesday evening. The group's Top 25 was officially announced on a live ESPN broadcast. The committee will continue to update the rankings next Tuesday (Dec. 2), and then they will release the final rankings on Sunday, Dec. 7 at approximately 11:45 a.m. (Central), also on ESPN.

The top four in the final rankings will be the four schools that will play in the inaugural College Football Playoff Semifinals on Jan. 1, 2015. The College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Allstate Sugar Bowl will kick off at 7:30 p.m. (Central), following the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl.

"Several factors came into play as the committee compiled its rankings this week and as we always do, we started with a clean sheet of paper," said selection chairman Jeff Long. "That means we start from scratch each week and evaluate small groups of teams against one another and create the rankings through seven rounds of voting. The committee is a group of college football experts whose task each week is to take a fresh look at the rankings 1-25."

The Selection Committee also ranks teams from No. 5 to No. 25. When the final rankings are released, the committee will also assign teams to the Cotton Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl, the Orange Bowl and the Peach Bowl.

In addition to this season, the Allstate Sugar Bowl will also host semifinal games in 2018, 2021 and 2024. In the other eight years of the 12-year agreement, the Allstate Sugar Bowl will feature the champions of the Southeastern and Big 12 Conferences (unless those teams are selected for the playoff, in which case a replacement team from that league will be selected to the Sugar Bowl).
