Over the next several weeks, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will meet on Mondays and Tuesdays to produce college football rankings for the 2016 season. The Selection Committee will release six sets of rankings, starting Tuesday, November 1, and concluding Selection Day, Sunday, December 4.

College football fans have eagerly awaited the release of the College Football Playoff rankings. It's always exciting to see the official Top 25 and get an idea of who we might see in the playoff. We now have the fifth set of rankings, and we have definitely seen a lot of chatter about it. And for good reason!

Many fans wonder how these rankings are determined. Although there is no cut and dry answer, we have gone into detail about the factors the Selection Committee uses for these rankings each week, which you can read about here

Below are the Week 13 rankings, announced Tuesday, November 29 on ESPN.
