The College Football Playoff released its second batch of rankings this season with the Michigan Wolverines (9-0, 6-0 B1G) coming in at No. 3.

Washington moves back into the top four when they probably should have been last week, though many believe the Ohio State Buckeyes should have slid into that spot after their destruction of Nebraska.

Clemson continues to take the second spot for the second week in a row, but Michigan now has three wins over top-12 teams, albeit all at home. The 2-and-3 spots are interchangeable, however, seeing as the only real difference is the jersey you would wear in the semi-final game.

Here are the full rankings:

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Michigan
  4. Washington
  5. Ohio State
  6. Louisville
  7. Wisconsin
  8. Texas A&M
  9. Auburn
  10. Penn State
  11. Oklahoma
  12. Colorada
  13. Oklahoma State
  14. Virginia Tech
  15. Utah
  16. West Virginia
  17. North Carolina
  18. Florida State
  19. Nebraska
  20. USC
  21. Western Michigan
  22. Boise State
  23. Washington State
  24. LSU
  25. Arkansas
