The new college football Playoff rankings came out on Tuesday. As it stands right now, Alabama would take on Clemson in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, while Ohio State tries their luck against Michigan at the Georgia Dome in the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl, both on New Year's Eve. However, there are still 3 weeks, and 2 CFP rankings left to go before the conference championship games....then we can really talk about the New Year's Six bowl games. The week 12 schedule for the Playoff Four looks like this (All games are on Saturday unless otherwise noted):

#1 Alabama vs. Chattanooga (7 PM EST - ESPN 2)

The Crimson Tide of Alabama is playing at home against an 8-2 Chattanooga team that honestly isn't likely to put up much of a fight.

In fact, the spread isn't worth betting on if you're into that kind of thing. Chalk this up as a win for the Tide to keep them undefeated at 11-0. Next game!

Michigan State vs. #2 Ohio State (Noon EST - ESPN)

The Buckeyes are favored by 22.5 over the Spartans, but even a win by Ohio State still doesn't guarantee a spot in the Playoff. They'll still need help from the Nittany Lions of Penn State, who face off against Rutgers in Piscataway that night. A potentially easy win for the Buckeyes would put them at 10-1, but a loss spoils their chances and puts the Spartans within 2 wins of going bowling at 4-7, with Penn State to follow the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

#3 Michigan vs. Indiana (3:30 PM EST - ESPN)

The Wolverines come into this game at 9-1 and are all but assured of going bowling. Now they need to defend their New Year's Six slots against a 5-5 Indiana team that's a win away from being bowl-eligible. A win doesn't affect Michigan that much, but if Indiana pulls the upset somehow, they're going bowling, and Penn State now controls their destiny.

#4 Clemson vs. Wake Forest (7 PM EST - ESPN)

DeShaun Watson and his Clemson Tigers head into Winston-Salem to take on the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest with a win for Clemson clinching the ACC Atlantic at 10-1. A win for the Demon Deacons, on the other hand, pushes them to 7-4 and gives the outright division title to Louisville, also making them a Playoff 'win-and-you're-in' case, providing that they've already beaten Houston.

In summary.....be prepared for a wild weekend in college football!
