Last night on ESPN, the first ever College Football Playoff Rankings were released.  This is college football's answer to the post BCS era where four teams will qualify for two playoff games with the winner of each game squaring off in the championship game to determine the National college football champion.

It was no surprise that Mississippi State and Florida State were numbers one and two but what is surprising is that Auburn and Ole Miss came in numbers three and four especially since Ole Miss just lost to LSU 10-7 last week.

Here is the rankings:

1              Mississippi State

3              Auburn

4              Ole Miss

5              Oregon
