Bama still No. 1 as Miami, Clemson switch spots and OU stays at No. 4

After a week in which most ranked teams took care of business, there was little movement in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings as the top four teams remained the same, though with a minor shuffle.

Miami moved up a spot to No. 2, trading places with Clemson in the process. Alabama remained No.1, while Oklahoma held steady at No. 4.

The Hurricanes, owners of the nation’s highest strength of schedule, moved up despite a close game against Virginia, while the Tigers crushed FCS foe Citadel.

“When you get down the way Miami did to Virginia two times, once in each half, and you have the poise and the ability to come back and win in a convincing manner, that is special,” said CFP committee chairman Kirby Hocutt.

Miami and Clemson will meet in the ACC championship game in two weeks but first have matchups against Pittsburgh and South Carolina, respectively, this week. The Tigers may have a chance to take the No. 2 ranking back before the conference title tilt as their opponent Saturday, the Gamecocks, are ranked
