Beginning Tuesday, November 24 and for the next four weeks, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee will announce their current rankings to determine which of the final four teams will be. The semifinal is set on December 20th, but the committee will provide a look at who stands where leading up to that point.

Each week on ESPN there will be a one-hour show where members of the Selection Committee will release their most current rankings. Those shows will take place during the dates and times below (all times ET):

  • 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 24

  • 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8
  • 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 15
  • 12 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 20 (Selection Day)
