The Bulldogs will slip from the No. 4 spot where they started the weekend, though they should remain in the top 10 when the selection committee releases its final set of rankings on Selection Sunday.

Oklahoma is in the College Football Playoff, moving into the fourth and final spot in the rankings after winning the Big 12 championship.

ESPN announced the game times for the December 29 playoff semifinals Sunday afternoon and the Tigers (13-0) will take on No. 3 Notre Dame (12-0) at 4 p.m. on ESPN. "So we went with the one-loss conference champion". The Sooners (12-1) defeated Texas to win the Big 12 title on Saturday.

Clemson (the ACC champion) and Notre Dame (undefeated) should occupy the top three spots, likely in that order.

Prior to Saturday's SEC Championship, the Georgia Bulldogs were ranked No. 4 in the country.
