CFP Ranking, top 4 unchanged
Alabama falls to No. 12
With the final rankings less than a week away, Alabama has fallen so far out that you need the Hubble telescope to find them.
The College Football Playoff selection committee revealed its fifth rankings of the season Tuesday without any change to the top four.
Ohio State remained on top after a 56-27 trouncing of arch-rival Michigan. The Buckeyes are followed by LSU, Clemson, and Georgia.
Alabama, which entered the week as the fifth-ranked team, will miss its first-ever College Football Playoff since the new format started. The Crimson Tide fell seven spots after suffering a 48-45 defeat to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.
Wins versus CFP Top 25 Teams
The Utes booked their ticket to the Pac 12 title game with a blowout win over Colorado, while the Sooners will compete for their fifth straight Big 12 crown after a 34-16 victory over Oklahoma State.
Baylor, which will face Oklahoma in the Big12 championship, jumped two spots to No. 7.
Auburn had one of the biggest climbs of the week, going from the 15th- to the 11th-ranked team. The Tigers are the best three-loss school, just ahead of Alabama and Oregon at No. 12 and No. 13, respectively. Minnesota dropped from 10 to 18 after losing to Wisconsin.
I'm fine with this. One plays 4, and 2 plays 3, so LSU will beat Clemson, Georgia will beat Ohio State, and we'll end up with an epic National Championship game between LSU and Georgia.

Orange Bowl 2020 moved to 2019
Kickoff moved from New Year’s Day to Dec. 30
Never missing an opportunity to make money, the good folks at the College Football Playoffs and ESPN have changed the 2020 Capital One Orange Bowl to The 2019 Capital One Orange Bowl, and it will be played on a Monday night for this season.
The Orange Bowl, College Football Playoff and ESPN announced the decision that the Capital One Orange Bowl has been moved from Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020 to Monday, Dec. 30, 2019
“The Capital One Orange Bowl was presented with a unique opportunity by our partners, including ESPN, Capital One, the ACC, Big Ten, SEC, Notre Dame, the Miami Dolphins and the CFP, to play this year’s game on Monday, December 30 in primetime,” Orange Bowl Committee president José C. Romano said in a statement. “With other bowl games planned for the early afternoon window on January 1, this move enables our game to stand alone as the only bowl game staged on Monday night, when fans are used to viewing football games. We are confident this traditional start time will be a positive for both the out of town and local fans who attend our game, as well as the television viewers across the country.”
It is not immediately known what game will take the 1 p.m. ET slot on ESPN on Jan. 1. In the 2018 campaign, the Fiesta Bowl was the lead-in to the Rose Bowl, while the Peach Bowl served as pre-game fodder for the first of the two CFP semifinals, the Cotton Bowl. The Citrus and Outback bowls are annual New Year’s games in addition to the Rose and Sugar; the Citrus aired on ABC opposite the Fiesta in the 1 p.m. ET time slot, while the Outback kicked at noon ET on ESPN2. Because of that, the guess here is the Citrus Bowl will now kick at 1 p.m. ET on New Year’s Day, taking the slot the Orange just vacated.
The 2019-20 New Year’s Six schedule will now break down as follows:
Saturday, Dec. 28
Cotton Bowl (early afternoon)
Peach/Fiesta Bowl (CFP semifinal)
Peach/Fiesta Bowl (CFP semifinal)
Monday, Dec. 30
Orange Bowl (primetime)
Wednesday, Jan. 1
Bowl TBA (early afternoon)
Rose Bowl (mid-afternoon)
Sugar Bowl (primetime)
The New Year’s Six games are now spread across three days — with the two most important games going second and third in the rotation.
The National Championship game will be played on Monday, Jan. 13, more than two weeks after the semifinal games.
