First College Football Playoff rankings pushed to Nov. 24

The release of the first College Football Playoff rankings was pushed back one week to Nov. 24, executive director Bill Hancock told ESPN on Thursday.

With all 10 FBS conferences now committed to playing a fall season, the delay gives the 13-member selection committee more time to gather information.

“Now that we know all conferences’ starting dates, this change will allow the committee to analyze another week of games,” Hancock said. “There will be four rankings before Selection Day. The committee members have been studying teams and watching video, and I know they’re looking forward to rolling up their sleeves and getting together.”

Selection Day will be Dec. 20, with the top four teams advancing to the playoff semifinals on New Year’s Day in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., and the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.

The national championship game is scheduled for Jan. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
