Each week, I’m going to toss out my predictions for the College Football Playoff committee’s Top 25 before the announcement on Tuesday night. If I were on the playoff committee, this is how I would rank these teams this week.
I would imagine Arkansas could jump in there, and I think they could throw UTSA and Houston a bone and rank them higher than Pitt and/or NC State, and I’m not sure how much the Bowling Green loss could hurt Minnesota. Kentucky’s best win of the season was over Florida… who now has 4 losses, and there’s not much else on their resume just yet. San Diego St, Miss St, SMU, Louisiana, Utah, Iowa St, West Virginia, etc could all be on the backend, or have the ability to jump in next week as teams lose and fall out.
I also wonder whether or not the committee will look at Texas A&M differently than a 2 loss team, based on losing their starting QB and the fact that they’re playing incredibly now, because that’s a completely different team than the one that lost to Arkansas. Either way, it’s going to be an interesting initial ranking reveal Tuesday night.
