The third edition of this season's College Football Playoff Top 25 was unveiled Tuesday with few significant changes from last week's list.
The top six remained unchanged, as LSU slotted in at No. 1 for the second straight week. Ohio State, Clemson, and Georgia rounded out the top four.
Despite the injury to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the committee still ranked Alabama just outside a playoff spot at No. 5.
Pac-12 squads Oregon and Utah present the next closest threats to the top four.
