Alabama, Clemson, LSU and Notre Dame are the top four teams in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season.
    
The 13-member selection committee released the first of its five weekly top 25s before the four-team field is set for the College Football Playoff semifinals on Dec. 2.
    
Michigan is fifth, followed by Georgia and Oklahoma.
    
The top four teams were no surprise. The same four teams are Nos. 1-4 in the latest Associated Press college football poll, just with Notre Dame third and LSU fourth.
    
Next week’s rankings figure to look a lot different. Four games matching top-20 teams will be played Saturday, including Alabama which features Saint Louis grad Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback at LSU.
    
UCF, led behind Mililani’s McKenzie Milton at QB was the highest ranked team from outside the Power Five conferences at 12th.
