The third set of College Football Playoff rankings will be unveiled Tuesday, leaving only one more epsiode before the final Playoff rankings are set for 2020.
Don’t expect much to change at the top of the order after Week 14: Each of the top-ranked teams were dominant Saturday, outscoring opponents 197-60. And, apart from wondering whether Notre Dame can get into the Playoff if it splits with Clemson in the ACC title game, there’s not much to discuss for the Playoff favorites.
It’s behind those top four where the biggest storylines abound: Who has the inside track to sneak into the top four, should a team in front of them slip? Texas A&M and Florida have held those coveted positions each of the last two weeks, but there has been vocal support in favor of undefeated Cincinnati at No. 7. The loss of BYU has cleared things up a little, but where then does Coastal Carolina enter the fray, if at all?
All questions that stand to be answered come Tuesday. With that, here’s everything you need to know to tune in and watch:
