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.
