Big shake up in the college football playoff rankings that were released last night.  Over the Thanksgiving holiday we saw #1 Alabama and #2 Miami lose so we were expecting a new #1 and a shake up at the top.

The problem is some people were shocked to see the top four teams that were chosen.  If you are not familiar with the College football playoff rankings then let me explain.

The top four teams are currently in the running for a playoff bid.  Those four teams will face off against each other until there are only two teams left standing.  Then those two teams face of for the college football national championship.

Your new number one team in the country is Clemson who is the reigning National Champion.  They moved up two spots in this weeks poll.

Here are the rankings.

#1 Clemson

#2 Auburn -- moved up 4 spots

#3 Oklahoma -- Moved up One Spot

#4 Wisconsin -- Moved up One Spot

#5 Alabama -- dropped four spots

#17 LSU -- Moved up one spot

This weekend in Conference championship weekend.  Many of the top 10 teams will face of for the chance to their Conference championship.  That means some of the top 10 teams will lose which will shake up the rankings.  Stay tuned.
