The final week of the 2019 college football regular season has arrived. It's the best week of the year - Rivalry Week.

This year's rivalry games will have some major College Football Playoff implications, with Ohio State taking on Michigan, Alabama facing Auburn and Oklahoma playing Oklahoma State, among others.

The top 25 polls updated on Sunday afternoon and the new College Football Playoff rankings will be out on Tuesday night.

What if the BCS rankings were still around? What would they look like right now?

Here are the hypothetical BCS rankings:

As you can see, if the BCS was still around, it would be a three-team race for those two national title spots, with LSU and Ohio State having the leg up on Clemson.

The College Football Playoff takes four teams, thankfully, and this year's major debate will be about the No. 4 spot.

Will it be Alabama? Oklahoma? Utah?

We'll find out in two weeks.
