NEW YORK (AP) — Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson are the top four teams in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season.

The LSU Tigers (6-2, 3-1) sit ranked No. 19 before their rivalry game with the new No. 2 Alabama Saturday.

After Clemson, Oklahoma and Ohio State were the next two in the selection committee’s initial top 25. The final rankings that will determine the participants in the College Football Playoff semifinals come out Dec. 3.
