With Michigan's humiliating loss to Ohio State in the Game, a spot will be open when the new College Football Playoff rankings are announced Tuesday.

Georgia, who was ranked at No. 5 last week, will be competing for that No. 4 ranking with Oklahoma, who survived an 59-56 showdown with West Virginia.

Ohio State is also in contention after its 62-39 win.

Georgia will face No. 1 Alabama in the SEC Championship on Saturday.
