The College Football Playoff committee placed Georgia at No. 1 in its first rankings of the season Tuesday over Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson.
Following Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson in Tuesday's initial rankings were Oklahoma at No. 5, Ohio State at No. 6, Penn State at No. 7, TCU at No. 8, Wisconsin at No. 9 and Miami at No. 10.
Committee chairman Kirby Hocutt, the athletic director for Texas Tech, said the Bulldogs had a slight edge over the Crimson Tide because of the victory against the Irish on September 9. The Tide should finally face some tougher competition with three of their final four games being against now ranked teams. The added motivation probably isn't needed after Alabama lost to Clemson on the final play of last season's national title game, but it never hurts.
ESPN's Greg McElroy took time to address the initial Playoff Rankings, and he believes the committee's work is "outstanding stuff".
For a variety of reasons, including what has gone on in Tallahassee this season, the powers in charge of the ACC are sitting on the edge of their seats hoping that some early season hiccups don't cost the conference the money and bragging rights (mostly, the money) that comes with joining the SEC and Big Ten as the only conferences to send a team each season.
While it may appear like Mark Richt has Miami back on the map, they could potentially be the most unimpressive undefeated team through the first two months of the season. The committee will re-rank the teams each week through December 3, when it will place the top four in the national semifinals, which this season will be played in the Rose and Sugar bowls on New Year's Day.

Although Alabama has been dominant, it doesn't have a win over a team now ranked in the committee's Top 25.
In the meantime, Notre Dame needs its quality wins to remain quality wins while continuing to win each weekend in order to maintain its #3 ranking. Rounding out the top 10 are No. 8 TCU (7-1) and No. 10 Miami (7-0).
Auburn debuted in the top 15 of the College Football Playoff rankings. They weren't ranked by the committee at any point in 2015 or 2016. Oklahoma State 12. Washington 13.
It will be interesting to see if Clemson can pick up a much-needed victory this Saturday at NC State to help their case as we wind down the season.
