Big 12 Shut Out Of College Football Playoff's First Top Four of 2015.

The first College Football Playoff rankings for the 2015 season are out. For the second season in a row, the Big 12 are not represented in the first CFP Top Four of the season, while the SEC manages to grab at least two slots in the Top Four for the second season in a row.

The first CFP Top Four of 2015 are:

1) Clemson
2) LSU
3) Ohio State

If the CFP was held today, Clemson would face Ohio State in the Orange Bowl, and LSU and Alabama would play each other once more in the Cotton Bowl. Considering that The Crimson Tide faces the Bayou Bengals this weekend in a big SEC East game, that is unlikely to happen.

Notre Dame gets the first on the outside looking in spot at no. 5, followed by Baylor at no. 6, Michigan State at no. 7, and TCU at no. 8. Iowa and Florida round out the CFP Top Ten at no. 9 and no. 10 respectively.

Shut out of both the CFP Top Four and the CFP Top Ten is the Pac-12. Pac-12 North leader Stanford is the first Pac-12 team ranked, coming in at no. 11, with Pac-12 South top team Utah coming in at no. 12.

Memphis is the first school out of the Group of Five conferences to be ranked on the list at no. 13.
