Buckeyes, Bears, Clemson, LSU AP top 4

Ohio State, Baylor, Clemson and LSU remain the top four teams in The Associated Press Top 25 as the College Football Playoff selection committee prepares its first rankings. There was little change in the poll released Sunday with five of top 10 teams having an open date. The first selection committee top 25 will be released Tuesday night. The pairings for the four-team College Football Playoff will be revealed Dec. 6. It’s anyone’s guess how the playoff committee will line up the teams, and with many of the biggest games of the season yet to be played, there are bound to be lots of changes by the time the final rankings are announced. Things held mostly steady in the AP poll. Ohio State, which suspended quarterback J.T. Barrett for this week’s game against Minnesota for being cited for operating a vehicle while impaired, was off Saturday and retained all 39 of its first-place votes.

Baylor has six first-place votes after losing one this week but remains a solid No. 2. No. 3 Clemson also has six first-votes, No. 4 LSU has five and No. 5 TCU has four after picking up the vote Baylor lost.

There’s a sizeable divide between the top five and the rest, with No. 6 Michigan State trailing the Horned Frogs by 87 points.
