Mississippi State, Florida State tops in college football playoff rankings

The first wave of college football playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night.

To the surprise of no one Mississippi State and Florida State were ranked No. 1 and No. 2. Two other SEC schools in Auburn and Ole Miss rounded out the top four.

Oregon and Alabama came in ranked No. 5 and No. 6 respectively.

The top four teams in the final rankings on Dec. 7 will play in the inaugural College Football Playoff, starting Jan. 1. With a flurry of SEC match-ups to come and a small pool of ranked opponents for others (namely FSU and Oregon) these rankings are sure to be changed by then.

The remainder of the top 10 includes No. 7 TCU, No. 8 Michigan State, No. 9 Kansas State and No. 10 Notre Dame.
