The College Football Playoff rankings will be updated tomorrow night. We'll see how the top 25 looks, but the top 10 should be pretty set.

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan will remain the top four. Behind them will be Georgia, followed by Oklahoma and then some combination of LSU, Ohio State, Washington State and UCF.

The old BCS system was a lot different than the CFP one, but if it was still in place, the rankings would basically be the same.

All Alabama, Clemson and Michigan need to do is survive "Rivalry Week" and win their respective conference championship games in order to reach the playoff. Notre Dame's regular season ends this weekend at USC, and if the Irish move to 12-0, they essentially lock up a playoff berth as well.

We'll see how the next two weeks shake out.

In the meantime, the new CFP rankings will be unveiled tomorrow night at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
