Cyclones ranked No. 15 in CFP poll

College Football Playoff Rankings What the Hell is the Committee Thinking on Wisconsin

There was really nothing to assail with Tuesday's first release.

Michigan's only win against a ranked opponent this season came September 2 against Florida, then ranked at No. 17 in the AP Top 25.

This year, the thing might be more hard to work out than before. I'm focusing on the next four games and could care less about the poll. Many people, including myself, believe there are two teams that are better. Instead, it's been Jake Fromm who's taken the keys to the offense, leading the Bulldogs to six straight wins by 25 points or more.

At that point in the season, few considered the win over the Irish to be an impressive one. Georgia also has a victory over Notre Dame on their resume, and the Fighting Irish hold the No. 3 spot in the rankings. Do you believe the committee would turn away these teams if they went 13-0? The 1-2 punch, however, is going to fire up the latest round of #SECBias. Both teams are 8-0.

This is the fourth season of the playoff, and until now Georgia had been a non-factor in the process. As the great Lee Corso would say, "Not so fast my friend!". Those victories and the close loss to Georgia made the Irish the highest ranked among one-loss teams. The schedule does not get any easier for Notre Dame as they cap off their season with road matchups against both Miami and Stanford.

Auburn debuted in the top 15 of the College Football Playoff rankings.

They will likely need some outside help and an Ohio State loss or two in order to jump into the playoff conversation. Wisconsin has been an equally unimpressive unbeaten team and they sit #9 in the rankings.

Here are three reasons why the Wisconsin Badgers did not deserve to be in the Top 4. However, their lackluster performance at Syracuse led to a major upset and it could ultimately be enough to keep the reigning national champions out of the playoffs this season.

Penn State and TCU are next on the list despite each having a loss, with undefeated Wisconsin and Miami round out the top 10.

MI is cognizant of what it has to do if it wants to be a Top 25 team: win games.

The first College Football Playoff rankings are out.

Georgia and Alabama are each 8-0 overall and 5-0 in conference play, with the Bulldogs winning their five league contests by an average score of 42-10 and the Crimson Tide by 48-8.

This weekend should be the first true test for the Hurricanes with the Virginia Tech Hokies coming into town. A repeat performance like we saw in 2015 when Notre Dame looked lethargic at home against Wake and the Irish open themselves up to some reseeding next week already. Seven teams started outside that top four and two of those were outside the top 10. "It was the two wins against top-25 CFP teams and, of course, the win over No. 3 Notre Dame that gave Georgia the slight edge this week". MSU has the Texas A&M and LSU wins, plus general better strength of schedule and the blowout of the Tigers on its side.

So. It's Halloween and MSU is a top 20 team.
