The College Football Playoff Committee released its third set of top 25 rankings of the 2015 season on Tuesday night. Clemson remained No. 1 for the third straight week in a row, followed by Alabama at No. 2, Ohio State at No. 3 and Notre Dame at No. 4. 

The committee will meet each week until the end of the season, releasing rankings on Tuesday night until the final reveal on Dec. 6 for the last top 25 and playoff announcements.

While the weekly rankings are critical in gauging where teams stand in early November, it’s important to remember last year’s top 25 featured Mississippi State at No. 1 and Ohio State – the team that won it all in 2014 – ranked No. 16.
