The College Football Playoff rankings have become one of fans’ favorite topics of discussion and generated some of the most highly debated numbers in all of sports. Each week, these statistics frustrate many while others have reaped the benefits of the new system.
On Wednesday, the College Football Playoff committee announced the official schedule for the rankings beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 3 and concluding on Sunday, Dec. 6.
“College football is booming in popularity. Fans eagerly await the weekly rankings because they love the competition and want to know how close their team is to making the playoff,” said CFP executive director Bill Hancock.
“The committee takes its job seriously, it works very hard, and we look forward to beginning the second season of the new College Football Playoff.”
Hancock on keeping weekly rankings: "There was a pretty strong sentiment, don't fix it if it ain't broke."

With this early selection date, the discussion regarding the status of the Army-Navy game has become ever important as the game occurs after December 3rd deadline. 2015 will be the first year that Navy, who recently joined the American Athletic Conference, will be eligible for the College Football Playoff.
Hancock: “Good discussion – robust” – on Army-Navy issues. Nothing settled yet.
