Nittany Lions Jump 6 Spots in New College Football Playoff Rankings

Nittany Lions Jump 6 Spots in New College Football Playoff Rankings

The Panthers (6-4, 5-1) can clinch the ACC Coastal with a win in one of their final two games.

The 10 teams at the top of the rankings are in the same positions they occupied on November 6.

The Sooners do have a couple of chances left to impress the committee.

The Saturday schedule begins with Ohio State at Maryland, Arkansas-Mississippi State, Colorado-Utah, Northwestern-Minnesota and Michigan State at Nebraska in the first window. Iowa and Michigan State fell out of the top 25 after being ranked last week.

ESPN's College Football GameDay will be broadcast from the Knights' campus on Saturday, adding more energy to an already highly anticipated matchup that will determine which team will clinch the American Athletic Conference East Division crown.

Pogba and Martial withdraw from France squad through injury as Lacazette recalled
Alassane Plea, who has scored eight goals in the Bundesliga for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, has been called up instead. Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has returned to Clairefontaine after receiving a recall to France's worldwide squad.

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI stayed put in the top four, with Georgia and Oklahoma still knocking on the door at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. The Bulldogs would play No. 6 Oklahoma, the projected Big 12 champion in these rankings.

If the Knights remain undefeated, they are on track to clinch the Access Bowl bid again, but they could face competition from Cincinnati and No. 25 Boise State.

As we hit the home stretch of the 2018 regular season, the true College Football Playoff contenders have emerged and the New Year's Six has begun to take shape.

Playoff Committee Chairman Rob Mullens joined the show to discuss the rankings.
