The College Football Playoff rankings - not the Coaches' Poll or the AP Poll - are all that matter these days when it comes to the sport's postseason. Thursday, it was announced when we'll get to see the first version of the rankings for 2019.
In all, there will be six different versions of the rankings. The first will come on Tuesday, November 5 at 9:00 PM ET. The next four will all be released on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM ET.
The final rankings - the one that really counts - will be released on Sunday, December 8 at Noon. The four teams included in that set of rankings will play for the national title.
Here's the schedule:
Tuesday, November 5: 9:00 PM ET
Tuesday, November 12: 7:00 PM ET
Tuesday, November 19: 7:00 PM ET
Tuesday, November 26: 7:00 PM ET
Tuesday, December 3: 7:00 PM ET
Sunday, December 8: Noon ET
Last year's event included Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma and Notre Dame. Clemson knocked off Alabama in the national championship game.
In the event's five-year history, Clemson and Alabama have each won two titles. Ohio State is the only other program to win it all.
Earlier this month, the Coaches' Poll was released. It looks like many of the same programs (Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, etc.) are favored to make it back to the College Football Playoff.
College football season kicks off on August 24 when Florida takes on Miami.
