The top five teams in Tuesday’s penultimate school soccer play-off ranking remained unchanged, while the hopes of the state of Iowa for the play-offs were boosted and the hopes of Cincinnati for a place in the final round of qualifying were further boosted.

Alabama remains in the lead with No. 1, followed by No. 1. 2 Notre Dame, No. 3 Clemson, no. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Texas A&M. Notre Dame and Clemson will meet for the second time this season on Saturday for the CCA championship game.

The State of Iowa, which was out of action last weekend, moves up to sixth place for the Big 12 championship game against tenth seeded Oklahoma. Eighth seeded Cyclones, the Gators and Georgia suffered two losses, but are ahead of ninth seeded Cincinnati (8-0), who lost one spot in each of the last two rankings, despite being ranked 21st. November doesn’t play at the CCF anymore.

The Bearcats finally have a chance to impress the committee in the American Athletic Conference title match against Tulsa’s No. 23, which is one place higher. But even a victory could keep them behind the Big 12 champion and possibly Texas A&M, who are not eligible for a place in Tennessee this week. Georgia is inactive after the cancellation of the game against Vanderbilt due to COVID-19 and other problems with the Commodores.

Neither Notre Dame, nor Clemson played last weekend, but Notre Dame’s PCP chances improved after North Carolina beat Miami 62-26. The Tar Heels have risen two places to 15th place, while Miami has dropped eight places to 18th place. Notre Dame defeated North Carolina on the 27th. November in Chapel Hill on a score of 31-17. Even if the Fighting Irish lose to Clemson, their profile seems solid enough to stay in the top four.
