The first edition of this season’s College Football Playoff rankings are almost here. Everyone is looking forward to how the committee sorts out the current college football landscape.
LSU is expected to earn the overall top spot. But Ohio State may just sneak up and snag No. 1 due to the Buckeyes impressive play this season.
Alabama, Penn State, Georgia and Clemson will also be in the mix for one of the top four spots. Oregon, Oklahoma, Florida, Utah and Baylor will be in the mix for the top 10.
This week’s College Football Playoff rankings are bound to change as the rest of the season progresses. Nonetheless, Tuesday night’s rankings will give a clearer picture of the criteria the committee uses to rank the teams.
Tonight’s playoff rankings will be revealed at 9 p.m. E.T. on ESPN. They are set to be released right after the first game of the college basketball Champions Classic between Kansas and Duke.
ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit, Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer and Joey Galloway will be the crew to reveal the rankings. Soon after the reveal, CFP committee chairman and Oregon Athletic Director Rob Mullens will join the show to answer questions.
Tonight will be a fun one for college sports fans everywhere.
