Who’s In?..not named Bama…

The latest College Football Playoff Rankings have been released:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Washington

Going into the season, everyone and their mother could tell you that Alabama would firmly state their case as the #1 all season long and they show no signs of holding up heading into the SEC Championship vs. Florida. No matter the result of that game, I can guarantee we will be seeing the Crimson Tide hold on to their number one ranking headed into New Year’s Eve.

At the #2 spot there is THE Ohio State University who proved themselves worthy as they defeated their oldest foe, the Wolverines of the University of Michigan, in a 2OT battle that even has Michigan’s name still in the College Football Playoff picture. However, OSU’s one loss this season came to #6 Penn St who is taking on #5 Wisconsin in the BIG 10 Championship this weekend. This game can stir up the entire playoff picture because not possessing a conference championship can drastically effect Ohio State’s ranking come time for the final poll.

Clemson faces an underrated and well-coached Virginia Tech team who I can see giving Deshaun Watson and his Tigers some trouble on Saturday. But, if they manage to win, they will secure the ACC Championship which will secure their spot as a top four team.

Skating on thin ice, the Washington Huskies currently hold the fourth and final spot in the College Football Playoff. Led by quarterback, Jake Browning, the Huskies face a top 10 ranked Colorado who is looking to steal that fourth playoff spot that is really up in the air. Colorado defeating Washington opens up a huge can of chaos and could turn the committee inside out.

Let me know who is in your College Football Playoff.
