College Football Playoff rankings: Final projection for top 25, bowl games

This is the situation one-loss Ohio State wanted to be ahead of Sunday's final College Football Playoff ranking, and the Buckeyes have moved into the final four according to our top 25 projection coming out of championship weekend.

Alabama not worthy of College Football Playoff spot

There should be debate. There should be significant dialogue. There is, after all, one major question looming over the College Football Playoff committee with the final pairings set to be announced at noon Sunday.
