The College Football Playoff Committee will release their first rankings on Tuesday but the AP and Coaches polls are out today. It was a bad day for the Big 12 as their two remaining undefeated teams both lost on Saturday and dropped today. Many believe that the Big-12 is now already out of playoff contention.

It was also a day of close calls for other teams in the top 10. Michigan handled their business on the road against rival Michigan State. Clemson pulled out a 37-34 road win over Florida State. Washington went to Utah and picked up a hard-fought win in the mountains. Louisville and Ohio State both under performed but both pulled off victories against weaker teams.

Utah remained in the rankings despite the loss to Washington, Colorado was off and stayed ranked and with their narrow win over Oregon State the Washington State Cougars jumped into the rankings.

rankings used here

The Associated Press Top 25: The longest-running and best-respected human poll. Didn't have any official bearing on the latter years of the BCS, and doesn't have any official bearing on the Playoff. Most outlets (including SB Nation) will use the AP's rankings as the standard until the committee takes over in November, though. Usually comes out on Sundays about 2 p.m. ET.

The USA Today Coaches Poll: Formerly part of the BCS, and now just a poll. It tends to react more cautiously than the AP's. Though polling athletic departments in order to rank other athletic departments is dubious, we still want multiple human polls in here, and this is the other big one. Releases early Sunday afternoons.
