College Football Power Rankings - Week 17

Updated: January 13, 2015, 2:46 PM ET

All the questions about whether Ohio State belonged in the inaugural College Football Playoff were answered emphatically when the Buckeyes defeated Alabama and Oregon in succession for the first title of the playoff era.

So it's no surprise that Ohio State is a unanimous pick for the top spot in the final 2014 rankings, and it's a place it might want to get used to, considering how much talent returns in 2015.

TCU, meanwhile, which was on the outside looking in, moves up to No. 3 following its 42-3 dismantling of Ole Miss in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. The Horned Frogs also will be loaded for 2015 and should be in prime playoff position.

Here's how the rest of our final 2014 power rankings shook out:

Overall | Voters 1-4 | Voters 5-8 | Voters 9-12 | Voter 13
