The College Football Playoff Selection Committee once again released an updated 2022 rankings after an upset-filled weekend set up the new-look poll ahead entering Rivalry Week and the final round of games in the regular season. The committee updated the data and debated the many matchups to rank the top contenders for the four-team playoff and those with a chance at the New Year’s Six bowls during ESPN’s Tuesday night reveal show.

The CFP Selection Committee provides a new Top 25 based on the latest results and ongoing power struggles between key storyline builders each week, setting the table for the postseason week-by-week. As the season winds down, the committee looks at each data point for evenly matched teams and weighs the value of certain wins and losses.

After winning the national championship last season, Kirby Smart has kept Georgia on track to defend its title with a return to the CFP. LSU remains in the picture as Tennessee slipped up, opening the door for the likes of Clemson and USC to make a case as potential conference champions. Ohio State and Michigan survived again to preserve the undefeated showdown for a spot in the Big Ten title game.
