Tennessee at No. 6 in College Football Playoff poll
The Volunteers jumped a spot in the latest College Football Playoff Poll.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - After conference championships were played Saturday, the College Football Playoff Poll dropped on Sunday.
The Tennessee Volunteers rose to number 6, up from the seventh spot last week.
No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Michigan, No. 3 TCU and No. 4 Ohio State made the playoff to compete for the national championship.
Even though Tennessee defeated Alabama during the regular season, the Crimson Tide came in at No. 5, the highest-ranked SEC team not in the CFP.
This will likely send the Vols to an all-orange Orange Bowl against Clemson; however, that official announcement will come out at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
