Texas sneaks into top 15 in latest College Football Playoff rankings

Meanwhile, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 4 MI all tallied big wins over the weekend to keep their respective places in the playoff picture.

The Mountaineers either need to lose their last two (at Oklahoma State, vs. Oklahoma) or the Sooners need to lose to West Virginia in two weeks. Undefeated UCF climbed up one spot to No. 11, as did Syracuse to No. 13.

The Big 12 got some solid respect from the committee. Big Ten West champion Northwestern came in at No. 22.

MI has an identical record with its only loss coming to the Notre Dame team sitting one spot ahead of it. Georgia has amassed a 9-1 record in the media-friendly SEC.

No. 4 MI and No. 10 Ohio State are the only Big Ten teams ranked ahead of Penn State and the only Nittany Lion opponents this season to appear in the poll. LSU 8. Washington State 9.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl is also a contract bowl, which is guaranteed the Big 12 champ and the SEC champ. However, Georgia still controls its own fate as it will face Alabama in the SEC Championship Game on December 1 in Atlanta.

Alabama is No. 1 for the 15th time in 28 rankings. The Knights would face No. 7 LSU, based on fan interest and matchup.

As we hit the home stretch of the 2018 regular season, the true College Football Playoff contenders have emerged and the New Year's Six has begun to take shape. Notre Dame 4. MI 5.

Alabama will host The Citadel on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT.
