Alabama slips to No. 5 spot in fifth ranking of 2017

Kirk Herbstreit explains how Alabama can still make the Playoff

Auburn (10-2) moved up to No. 2, followed by No. 3 Oklahoma (11-1) and No. 4 Wisconsin (12-0). Meanwhile, Alabama is ranked No. 5 and could stand to move up should another team in the top four fall this weekend.

The Tigers (11-1) are coming off a 34-10 win over rival SC. Alabama, as expected, fell after getting knocked off by rival Auburn 26-14.

Kirk Herbstreit explains how Alabama can still make the Playoff

Each of the top four teams plays a conference title game this Saturday against another top-10 team, creating potential play-in playoff games. Auburn checked in at No. 2 following the win over Alabama.

Alabama vs. Ohio State: Who would deserve fourth playoff spot? If Oklahoma defeats No. 11 TCU in the Big 12 title game and Wisconsin beats No. 8 Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game, the Sooners and Badgers look like locks to round out the field. The committee is then debating whether Ohio State's clearly superior wins, and a conference championship, outweigh its one bad, blowout loss in a debate with the Crimson Tide.

Clemson has a victory over six of the top eight teams since 2013 and has won the last meeting it has had against Auburn, Oklahoma, Alabama, Miami (FL) and Ohio State. "Certainly not maybe in this game, but I think the team we played tonight is a very good football team - probably one of the best teams in the country". The two teams meet in the AAC championship game, with the victor likely playing in the Peach Bowl. The victor will get the Group of Five's guaranteed spot in a New Year's Six bowl game, but those teams are not even an afterthought in the playoff conversation.

OU is searching for its 11th Big 12 championship and first under coach Lincoln Riley at 11:30 a.m. Saturday against TCU at AT&T Stadium. On Saturday, nine conference championship games will be played, including four featuring two top-11 teams with clear playoff implications. A list of Ohio State's radio affiliates can be found here. Clemson has been ranked in the top 25 in all 24 polls published since the system began in 2014. Alabama also will sit out conference championship weekend for the first time since 2013. Auburn, even with two losses, would make it because they'd have two wins over the then-No. The Sooners and Buckeyes would both be 11-2 with a loss to a top-10 team and a loss to a 7-5 team. LSU (9-3), 18. Washington State (9-3), 19. If Georgia downs Auburn in the SEC championship, would the Bulldogs jump over Alabama? Southern California (10-2), 11. Should the eighth-ranked Buckeyes win, they could provide their own compelling argument for a spot in the semifinals. Auburn and Oklahoma are the only two teams with two wins over teams which will appear in the top 10 this week.
