The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released on Tuesday night with a top-six of LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, and Oregon.
Twitter had their various hot takes and reactions to the rankings by media and fans:
This is still in play....— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) November 13, 2019
11-1 Penn State (B10 Champ)
10-2 UGA (SEC Champ)
11-1 Baylor/OK (B12 Champ)
11-1 Clemson (ACC Champ)
11-1 Ore/Utah (P12 Champ)
11-1 Ohio State
That would be a hell of a selection show.
Rob Mullens specifically mentioned that Minnesota only played 1 conference team with a winning record prior to Penn State. The same is true of Alabama.— David Hood (@MDavidHood) November 13, 2019
He was asked whether the committee compared Minnesota and Alabama H2H and he said he didn't know b/c he was out of the room.

Committee chair just said Georgia's two ranked wins put them over Bama.— David Hood (@MDavidHood) November 13, 2019
Actually the strangest thing I wrote today was who would be in the @OrangeBowl today. With Clemson in a semi, the OB gets the next highest-ranked ACC team. Well, there isn't one. So I went w/ Wake b/c it's 7-2 and UVA is 7-3. So, there's that.— Heather Dinich (@CFBHeather) November 13, 2019

Why am I pulling for Clemson? Easy.— Marc Ryan (@MarcRyanOnAir) November 13, 2019
I host their post game show.
I’m pulling for Clemson because they’ve been crapped on all year by a national media ignorant and clueless to how good they really are.
I’m a fan of the truth being exposed, and we’ll get to see that.
Wish they’d point out to the committee that they flat out failed putting PSU above Clemson last week ??— Jessica (@Leighshorse) November 13, 2019
I still don’t trust this committee. ???????
Hate for #Alabama in the playoff is driven by folks either A not wanting their team to play the Tide or B people just tired of seeing them there. But every year the NFL Draft rolls around & 10 guys from there get taken. They’re talented and until they lose twice are a Top4 team.— Steve Wiltfong (@SWiltfong247) November 13, 2019
At No. 5, Alabama is going to need some help to finish in the top four on Selection Day. The question is if a Pac-12 title will be enough to bump Oregon or Utah ahead of the SEC's second-best team on Selection Day. Alabama might finish with just one win against a ranked...— Heather Dinich (@CFBHeather) November 13, 2019
Most Weeks Ranked Number 1 in @CFBPlayoff rankings:— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) November 13, 2019
Mississippi St- 3
Ohio State- 1
LMAO UGA AT 4?!? LMAO https://t.co/O5Ncvj6Vsj— Clemson Tom ?? (@ClemsonTom) November 13, 2019
What we learned... Committee hates the Big 12. Georgia has to win out. Clemson needs to win out. Oregon has to love its position. Alabama needs chaos. Utah is sitting back there looking at Oregon...— David Hood (@MDavidHood) November 13, 2019
The reality is, whoever they had put No. 4, people would have said "Really? Them?"— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) November 13, 2019
Outside of those top 3, no one has a clear argument over the rest of the field. Which is why I would have just given it to Minnesota.
Feels like Clemson will get the BigTen champion in the Fiesta Bowl. Likely Ohio State. Rankings back that notion of course but doubtful much changes in the top3 next 4 weeks.— Roy Philpott (@RoyPhilpott) November 13, 2019
Clemson has been in the top 4 of the @CFBPlayoff rankings 25 times.— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) November 13, 2019
2nd only to Alabama with 28.
It’s LSU, Ohio State, Clemson and Georgia. Seems like Bulldogs getting benefit of non-conference game (beating Notre Dame). Bama is 5, then Oregon, Utah, Minnesota, Penn State, Oklahoma.— Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) November 13, 2019
Alabama is currently No. 5 in the College Football Playoff rankings.— Marq Burnett (@Marq_Burnett) November 13, 2019
Best case scenario for Alabama, imo:
-Top 3 teams (LSU, Ohio State, Clemson) win out
-No. 12 Auburn beats No. 4 Georgia to give the Bulldogs their second loss
-Alabama beats Auburn to pick up a top 10 win
I’d be fine with a semi versus Ohio State then get the opportunity to drag LSU or UGA for back to back natties.— Tiger Commenter (@TigerCommenter) November 13, 2019
3rd? No thanks. That takes us off the ROY bus.— Barstool Clemson (@BarstoolClemson) November 13, 2019
Here's my guess for tonight. Thinking on 4-5 is if UGA wins this week, they move to 4 next week anyway and have 2 better wins than Alabama right now. If PSU was 4 LW, Minny win should mean a lot!— Chris Fallica (@chrisfallica) November 12, 2019
Since the one-point win at North Carolina, Clemson has won its five games by an average of 41.6 PPG and covered vs each FBS team its faced.— Chris Fallica (@chrisfallica) November 12, 2019
One man's guess:— Tony Barnhart (@MrCFB) November 12, 2019
What I think it should be and what I think it will be are the same today.— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) November 12, 2019
2. Ohio State
