What to Expect From the College Football Playoff Rankings — Trick or Treat

Nick Saban isn't interested in College Football Playoff poll

JT Barrett and the defensive line came up big when Ohio State needed them the most

Notre Dame 4. Clemson 5.

For motivational purposes, of course.

Penn State was that close to going 8-0 and challenging for the No. 1 or No. 2 spot in the first set of College Football Playoff rankings. He has missed three games this season and been limited in others with plantar fasciitis. Alabama won 59-0. Alabama won 66-3.

Each of these three teams has a loss and a couple of formidable foes ahead, but a 1-loss Big 12 champion-especially one with a win at Ohio State (in Oklahoma's case)-would be a strong contender to make the field of four.

Notre Dame has posted two impressive back-to-back wins over ranked teams USC and NC State.

Auburn enters a pivotal month of November with a trip to Texas A&M on Saturday (11 a.m., ESPN), followed by games against Georgia, ULM and Alabama. Washington, at No. 12, is the highest ranked Pac 12 team, although the conference has five schools ranked between No. 12 and No. 25.

The 1-2 punch, however, is going to fire up the latest round of #SECBias.

Ohio State has arguable the toughest win of the group because they beat the Nittany Lions. The Hurricanes have been beating up bad teams and barely slipping past average opponents. Oklahoma 6. Ohio State 7.

Penn State took advantage of those flaws, but it still wasn't enough.

The AP and USA Today coaches poll, which for years were used to help select the national title participants, have vastly different viewpoints. LSU had no remaining timeouts and couldn't get off another play as the game ended.

"The debate, as passionate as the discussion for teams 3 through 7 was, was even more passionate for teams 1 and 2", Hocutt said. Win out and the Buckeyes are in.

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Freshman point guard Connor McCaffery of Iowa has decided to play this season instead of redshirt. No. 9 Wisconsin and No. 10 Miami are both undefeated but with no marquee victories.

Still, there are opportunities. This year, the big question is whether the committee prefers quantity or quality.

Let's take a look at how this could impact the top teams this season as well as my predictions for the initial College Football Playoff rankings. A healthy Bryant is a must for the Tigers if they want to have an opportunity to defend their title. Notre Dame's rushing attack may be the best in the nation. The Bulldogs play UMass on Saturday. That Notre Dame game is probably why Georgia is at No. 1 over Alabama. JT Barrett took command of this offense, making precision passes and running the offense with ease like he has done his entire career.

They have only one Power 5 win over a team with a record over.500 (Northwestern). This is about who you've beaten. In the grand scheme, these first rankings won't amount to much. He's more polished as a runner than a passer, but he's improved slightly in that area.
