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.
