Alabama and Notre Dame continue to sit 1-2 as the top five teams in the penultimate release of the College Football rankings remained unchanged on Tuesday night. The final rankings will come out on Sunday.


The lone change in the top 6 from last week sees Florida, which fell to LSU over the weekend, being replaced by Iowa State, which sees its playoff hopes getting a boost.

Florida slipped to No. 7 with Georgia, Cincinnati and Oklahoma completing the top 10.

Alabama continues to lead the rankings this week and is followed by No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Ohio State in the Top 4. Texas A&M remains at No. 5.

The Crimson Tide will face the Gators in the SEC championships game, while Notre Dame and Clemson will meet for the second time this season in Saturday’s ACC championship showdown.

The Cyclones, meanwhile, will play for the Big 12 championships this coming weekend against No. 10 Oklahoma.

Indiana is No. 11 and is followed by No. 12 Coastal Carolina (11-0) which becomes the first FBS team to 11 wins. USC is No. 13 and North Carolina, which dismantled last week’s ten-ranked Miami (FL), is No. 15.

Rounding out the top 20 are Iowa at No. 16, followed by BYU, the Hurricanes, Louisiana and Texas.
