FOX Four: The College Football Playoff rankings after Week 13
Every week until the official College Football Playoff field is announced, a group of FOX Sports broadcasters, writers and production staff will vote on the "FOX Four" -- our collective ranking of the current four best teams in the country. Here is how we would seed the playoff field after Week 13.
Other teams receiving playoff votes: Michigan
Next week on FOX and FS1 (all times ET): Pac-12 Championship Game - No. 9 Colorado vs. No. 5 Washington (Friday, 9:00 p.m. ET, FOX); Kansas State at TCU (Saturday, 12:00 p.m. ET, FS1); No. 10 Oklahoma State at No. 8 Oklahoma (Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET, FOX); Baylor at No. 18 West Virginia (Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET, FS1); Big Ten Championship Game - No. 6 Wisconsin vs. No. 7 Penn State (Saturday, 8:00 p.m. ET, FOX)
A dream season continued this weekend for Washington, as U-Dub clinched a Pac-12 North title by beating cross-state rival Washington State in the Apple Cup. Still, to get to the playoff there is one piece of unfinished business left: Beat No. 9 Colorado in the Pac-12 title game. Do that, and it's hard to imagine the Huskies would be left out of the playoff.

The Tigers were one of the most inconsistent teams all teams all season, but they seem to be playing their best football at the most important time of the year. Clemson smoked cross-state rival South Carolina on Saturday, and it feels like if they win the ACC title next week, they will be in the playoff.

Ohio State (11-1)
You don't need us to tell you that Ohio State won a game for the ages Saturday, beating Michigan 30-27 in a double-overtime thriller. Still, even with the win, there's no guarantee the Buckeyes are in the playoff. Could a Penn State win in the Big Ten title game keep Ohio State out of the Final Four?
The Crimson Tide continued to roll Saturday, crushing Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Regardless of what Alabama does next week against Florida in the SEC Championship Game, Alabama will be in the playoff.
