The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - SPORTS - BY RALPH D. RUSSO

Alabama is the new No. 1 in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off rank­ings, with Clem­son up to No. 2 and Mi­ami and Ok­la­homa join­ing the top four for the first time.

Wis­con­sin was fifth and Auburn was up to sixth in the rank­ings re­leased Tues­day.

The Crim­son Tide had been se­cond be­hind Ge­or­gia in the first two se­lec­tion com­mit­tee rank­ings, but the Bull­dogs and pre­vi­ously No. 3 Notre Dame were beaten last week­end, open­ing up the top for changes.

Clem­son moved up from four and un­beaten Mi­ami jumped from sev­enth to third, giv­ing the At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence two top four teams. Ok­la­homa moved up one spot.

Un­beaten Wis­con­sin moved up from eighth and is the high­est-ranked Big Ten team. Auburn is the high­es­tranked team with two losses.

Ge­or­gia is sev­enth and Notre Dame is eighth.
