After pulling off an upset of Alabama in the Iron Bowl, Auburn jumped to No. 2 in the fifth round of the College Football Playoff rankings. ESPN's Heather Dinich notes that the Tigers are the first two-loss team to be ranked in the top four.
Clemson took over the No. 1 spot this week, and Oklahoma rose one spot to No. 3. Undefeated Wisconsin made its first appearance in the playoff committee's top four, rounding out the current potential playoff field at No.4.
How do you think the current CFP rankings will be impacted following conference championship weekend? Weigh in below.
