The fourth College Football Playoff rankings of the year have been released.

Each of these top 25 lists brings us closer to the final CFP field that will be released on December 4's Selection Sunday. After an exciting slate of college football matchups this past weekend, there were some notable shakeups near the top of this week's rankings.

That being said, the top 4 teams in the nation remains the same for the third week in a row: No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan and No. 4 TCU. 

No. 5 LSU and No. 6 USC are the next two teams on the outside looking in.

  1. Georgia
  2. Ohio State
  3. Michigan
  4. TCU
  5. LSU
  6. USC
  7. Alabama
  8. Clemson
  9. Oregon
  10. Tennessee
  11. Penn State
  12. Kansas State
  13. Washington
  14. Utah
  15. Notre Dame
  16. Florida State
  17. North Carolina
  18. UCLA
  19. Tulane
  20. Mississippi
  21. Oregon State
  22. UCF
  23. Texas
  24. Cincinnati
  25. Louisville

This coming weekend features some highly-consequential regular-season finales — most notably a matchup between Michigan and Ohio State. The winner of this matchup of unbeatens will punch their ticket to the Big Ten championship and likely solidify their spot in the College Football Playoff.

Next week's CFP rankings show will kickoff at approximately 9 p.m. ET.
