The Top 25 will be unveiled, including the four teams projected to reach the 2017 College Football Playoff.
It will be an interesting finish to the year, and the field of four teams is sure to be hotly debated when the time comes. The Crimson Tide is Ohio State's primary competition for a playoff spot if Ohio State wins.
Saturday's conference championship games, at least three of which will match teams ranked in the CFP top 10, will be pivotal.
The final College Football Playoff rankings will be revealed the day after the conference title games, with ESPN broadcasting the show to reveal the four playoff teams at noon on Sunday.
Oklahoma, Clemson, Wisconsin and Auburn are expected to make up the Top 4 in Tuesday's rankings.
The Tide have spent the season as the AP's No. 1-ranked team (not that polls are supposed to matter to the committee), but they've also been the CFP committee's top team in two sets of rankings.

Arabs prepare for Iran Security Council face-off
It is widely believed that Iran is backing the Houthi rebels. PM Saad Hariri, a Sunni leader belongs to Future Movement. Hezbollah is a partner to Lebanon's coalition government.
France says Saudi coalition must boost aid efforts to Yemen
Saudi Arabia announced it shut down all ports after a Houthi ballistic missile attack near Riyadh's global airport. More than 10,000 people have been killed in the conflict since March 2015 and three million have been displaced.
So who has a better case for the playoff? "Entering that Auburn game, it (Alabama) was 62nd in strength of schedule". By losing to Auburn, Alabama is not playing in the SEC Championship, so its season is over.
Auburn's defense may be seen as a weak link by some since its conceded over 20 points to Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Arkansas and LSU, but limiting Georgia and Alabama to 17 points in two of the last three weeks has to count for something as well.
Although the Buckeyes enter the Big Ten Championship as a more tested contender than Wisconsin with victories over two Top 15 teams, they aren't a lock to take home hardware from Indianapolis given how well the Badgers have played. Those in favor of Ohio State would claim its conference championship and three wins over ranked opponents. Urban Meyer or Nick Saban?
Also looming large is the Buckeyes' Week 2 loss to Oklahoma.
Both Clemson and Oklahoma are 11-1 with resume-building non-conference wins over division champs - Clemson's over SEC West victor Auburn and Oklahoma's over Big Ten East victor Ohio State.
Ohio State's resume would have better wins, but a worse loss.
