First College Football Playoff ranking: Committee gets it….right?

The Cougars cracked the first edition of the College Football Rankings, checking at No. 25 when the poll was released at 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

Should Georgia and Alabama win out, they'll face each other in Atlanta for the SEC title and the top spot in the rankings heading into the playoff.

Wisconsin and Miami, two undefeated teams from Power 5 conferences are also seemingly in a little bit of trouble, ranked ninth and tenthm repsectively. Getting dismantled by Oklahoma had a lasting impact, and it's one that rightfully put the Buckeyes behind the Sooners.

Alabama is pretty much a given.

"A lot of people might say that we don't deserve to be in the college playoff, and stuff like that", Michigan fullback Khalid Hill said. It's worth noting that ESPN analyst Booger McFarland said if both teams got to the championship game with unbeaten records, the only way both teams make the playoffs is if Alabama wins.

But so would Oklahoma, the team in the No. 5 spot thanks to a head-to-head win over Ohio State in Week 2. That honor belongs to John Henson, who is expected to see a bump in playing time with Greg Monroe out a couple of weeks, at 63.2 percent. And all Oklahoma needs is a team ranked ahead to lose, and to run the table and voila - perhaps another playoff appearance.

Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Notre Dame are the four teams that the committee decided are the top right now.

Leave it to Alabama coach Nick Saban to finally reveal the underlying truth why LSU lost to 201/2 -point underdog Troy just more than a month ago. Wisconsin also misses Penn State and Ohio State in this year's Big Ten regular-season rotation. The Crimson Tide would be favored if the SEC championship game was this week.

The Huskies (7-1), who made last year's playoff, still have the ranked opponents Stanford and No. 25 Washington State (7-2) on their schedule, and potentially a matchup against No. 17 Southern California (7-2) in the conference title game. The committee wants to reward teams with quality wins. You can't get too gassed up, and make something happen that's not there. If you prefer quantity, Clemson has more quality wins with victories over Auburn, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.

The Tigers, however, have a few built-in advantages.
