TCU moved up to No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, becoming the latest team to jump past undefeated Florida State.

The Seminoles are fourth, still in position to reach the playoff if it can win Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference championship game against Georgia Tech.

Alabama is No. 1 and Oregon is No. 2 for the third straight week.

Ohio State is fifth and Baylor, which beat TCU earlier in the season, is sixth.

Boise State is the highest ranked — and only ranked — team from outside the Big Five conferences, which puts the Broncos (10-2) in position to receive a bid to one of the four New Year's Day bowls.
