The College Football Playoff rankings are out, heading into the biggest weekend of the season so far.

On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast , Dennis Dodd, national college football writer for CBS Sports, joins Ralph Russo to breakdown where the playoff race is headed. What teams control their paths to the CFP semifinals and which ones have less room for error? Why would the Big Ten be better off if Michigan wins out than Ohio State? Can Washington State work the Pac-12 back into the mix? And does Central Florida have any shot to even get into the selection committee’s conversation?

Also, Gary Danielson of CBS joins the show. He will be on the call Saturday night for Alabama at LSU. How can the Tigers pull the upset?
