Twitter reacts to UCF jumping Ohio State in latest CFP rankings

BOSTON MA- NOVEMBER 24 tight end Jake Burt #84 of the Boston College Eagles celebrates his TD with tight end Tommy Sweeney #89 of the Boston College Eagles as BC takes on Syracuse at Alumni Stadium

Rivalry week and the conference title games remain, but until then there's no reason for the committee to budge from their standing-Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI have separated themselves from the rest.

Should Alabama lose a close game to Georgia in the SEC championship game, the Bulldogs likely would finish in the top four as SEC champs, but the committee also would consider one-loss runner-up Alabama for a semifinal spot at the expense of both the Big 12 and Big Ten champions. It was No. 15 at this point a year ago. But with no hope at a playoff, it's a bit of an empty achievement. Only Clemson (6) has won more.

Florida jumped two spots to No. 11. Washington State's loss came at LSU and the Cougars played an easier non-conference schedule than the Tigers did.

Later on Monday, the king traveled to the northern Tabuk region, resuming a domestic tour in the latest public outreach apparently meant to show support for his chosen heir.

Alabama, Clemson , Notre Dame and MI were at the top of the College Football Playoff rankings Tuesday night, marking the first time in the five-year history of the postseason system that the same teams held the first four spots for three straight weeks. Ohio State is slightly above the FBS average in defensive efficiency (48th at 61.2 entering Saturday), while Oklahoma is 90th at 42.1. ACC Coastal champion Pitt makes an appearance in the rankings at No. 24 after clinching the division on Saturday.

On Dec. 1 the Knights will host the American Athletic Conference Championship game at home, playing either Memphis or Houston. "We understand Ohio State has a quality road win over Penn State". Notre Dame 4. MI 5.

"We spent considerable time talking about UCF and Ohio State", committee chair Rob Mullens told ESPN on Tuesday night. Georgia and Oklahoma are the first two out of the playoff picture. LSU 8. Washington State 9. Kentucky 16. Washington 17. Northwestern 20. Syracuse 21.
