Ohio State tops LSU, Alabama and Penn State


If there was a story that surpassed all the others in the first set of rankings of the University football playoffs on Tuesday night for 2019, it was this: the defending national champion Clemson, victor of 24 consecutive FBS leading games, would not compete for the national championship if The Playoff took place today. Oklahoma is three spots behind Georgia despite losing to No. 16 Kansas State on the road while Georgia lost to 4-5 SC at home. The Tigers came in behind first-ranked Ohio State, second-ranked LSU, third-ranked Alabama, and fourth-ranked Penn State.

But Penn State has been ideal against the number on the road (3-0) and has already recorded quality wins over teams like Iowa, Michigan and Michigan State, whereas the Golden Gophers have yet to play a ranked team. Penn State is #4. A close look at the resumes of both teams up to this point clearly favors Penn State, and the playoff selection committee recognized that. "As for Oklahoma, it was a bad loss to Kansas State, but the Sooners should be ahead of Georgia, Oregon and Utah and be at No. 6". MI (7-2) 15. Notre Dame (6-2) 16. Moving forward, Penn State will face another handful of tough teams. While Minnesota won't come close to the top four with a win - even a convincing one - the Gophers should at least be much closer to the top 10 with a victory. Another loss would all but eliminate the Bulldogs and could complicate the SEC's hopes of landing two teams in the final four.
