College Football Playoff rankings: Predictions

There are still be plenty of questions (and debates) about the CFP, even after some impressive wins by Alabama, Georgia and Michigan this week.

MORE: Analyzing the first CFP rankings

With Alabama routing No. 3 LSU, the Crimson Tide have an even more firm grip on the top spot. But No. 2 Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame also stayed undefeated with Week 10 wins.

So which team will take LSU's spot in the top four in the next CFP rankings? We think it's Michigan — at least right now. Georgia also has a case after winning at No. 9 Kentucky, 34-17.

That said, here's how we think the CFP semifinals and New Year's Six Games will look at the end of the season:

  • Peach Bowl: Georgia vs. West Virginia
  • Fiesta Bowl: Kentucky vs. UCF
  • Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs. Washington State
  • Sugar Bowl: LSU vs. Oklahoma
  • Cotton Bowl (Semifinal): Alabama vs. Michigan
  • Orange Bowl (Semifinal): Clemson vs. Notre Dame
