Alabama is the No. 1 ranked team in both weekly polls entering Week 10, but the Crimson Tide are not the top team in the first 2017 College Football Playoff rankings revealed Tuesday.

Georgia, who’s ranked No. 2 in the polls behind SEC rival Alabama, leads the initial CFP standings of the season.

These teams appear to be on a collision course to meet in the SEC Championship Game on Dec. 2. If both schools enter the SEC title game undefeated and the score is close, it’s not inconceivable that both programs could earn a playoff spot.

Notre Dame, whose only loss is to Georgia, and defending champion Clemson, who also only has one loss, round out the top four spots.

Here are the inaugural CFP standings of the 2017 season. The top four teams earn a berth to the playoff.
