Projected top 25 College Football Playoff rankings prior to the initial release from the CFP committee.


The first batch of College Football Playoff rankings will be revealed on Tuesday, and the entire top 25 should be very interesting. There will be little surprise at the top, but after the nation’s best four teams, there’s a lot of fat in the middle.

How will one-loss Texas A&M stack up against one-loss Ohio State. The former lost against Alabama, while the latter dropped a stunner to Penn State. Ohio State has, in sum, looked more impressive this year, but A&M’s loss was the more impressive of the two.

And how will teams like Auburn and Wisconsin shake out? Both have two losses, but they’re against really good teams. There’s also the likes of USC, who is streaking, the Big 12, which is without an undefeated team, and Florida, a one-loss division leader who looks incredibly flawed.

One thing to remember when dealing with the College Football Playoff committee is that it finds no problem relying on the eye test. CFP commissioner Kirby Hocutt recently told Campus Insiders that if the committee feels that a single conference has two of the nation’s best teams, it will rank them appropriately.

Looking ahead to Tuesday’s announcement, here’s a projection of how the committee will rank the top 25 teams in the nation.

2. Michigan
3. Washington
4. Clemson
