Clemson ranked No. 2 in new-look AP Poll

We're one week out from the final College Football Playoff rankings and the new AP Top 25 featured some movement.

Three top-10 teams went down in all - Ohio State benefitting the most by a move up four spots with a 63-29 win at previous No. 4 Michigan and also losses from Washington State and LSU.

That paved the way for a new top-7 of Alabama then Clemson, Notre Dame, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State and UCF.

Clemson opponents check in at No. 18 (Syracuse) and No. 22 Texas A&M, while ACC Championship opponent Pittsburgh dropped out (24-0 road loss at Miami).

The next-to-last CFP rankings will come on Tuesday at 7 p.m. (ESPN) and the final selections will be made at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday (ESPN).

Notable games Saturday include neutral site contests between Clemson and Pittsburgh (8 p.m./ABC), Oklahoma and No. 14 Texas (noon/ABC), Alabama and Georgia (4 p.m./CBS) and Ohio State and No. 21 Northwestern (8 p.m./FOX).
