What do you think about the first College Football Playoff Rankings of the season?
The debate has already begun regarding which teams deserve the top four spots.
All four have LSU, Alabama and Ohio State in their top four. Everything is fine. The teams in front of Clemson all play each other.

After two breathers against Maryland and Rutgers coming up, Ohio State hosts Penn State and makes a trip to MI. It's about discussing why things occurred and using what we learned in the first rankings to try and project what could happen in the event of an Ohio State loss. Four and 1 all through the six rankings of 2017 and spent all six weeks of 2018 at No. 2. The Wolfpack lost 38-31 in Raleigh in 2017 and 24-17 in overtime at Clemson in 2016.
