Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and Notre Dame remained at the top of the College Football Playoff selection committee rankings.

Iowa stayed at No. 5 and Oklahoma State moved up to No. 6, one spot ahead of Big 12 rival Oklahoma.

Clemson, Alabama and Ohio State seem to have control of their playoff hopes. If those three win out it looks as if they should be in.

The highest ranked Pac-12 team was Stanford at No. 11. The Pac-12 will need a lot of help to avoid being left out of the final four the way the Big 12 was last season.

Navy was the highest-ranked Group of Five team and American Athletic Conference rival Houston was No. 19. The Midshipmen and Cougars play each other on Nov. 27.
