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.

Although the team started at No. 1, Tennessee fell after losses to both Georgia on Nov. 5 and South Carolina on Nov. 19.

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.
