“This has been a week of stability in the rankings, especially at the top. Given the way the games were played over the past week, there was very little change,” said selection chairman Jeff Long. “As important as the rankings are at the top, I want to continue to emphasize we focus on all 25. Our job is to rank 1-25 and we take that very seriously. We spend a great deal of time talking about each team that we rank.”
The selection committee will continue to evaluate teams and will meet in person again December 1-2 to issue its new rankings before the final meeting December 5-7. The playoff pairings, New Year’s bowl pairings and final top 25 rankings will be announced Sunday, December 7.
