1) Clemson Tigers – The Tigers left no doubt in a dominant performance against the Hurricanes.
2) Oklahoma Sooners – Just like Clemson the Sooners left no questions as to whether they should be in the College Football playoffs.
3) Georgia Bulldogs – The Bulldogs got revenge against Auburn and have proven to be the best team in the SEC.
4) Alabama Crimson Tide – The Tide should be in over Ohio State, in my opinion.
5) Ohio State Buckeyes – The Buckeyes got a huge win against Wisconsin, but two losses and an especially bad loss to Iowa keeps them out. A bad loss to Michigan kept Penn State out last year, so I figure it’s only fair to judge Ohio State the same way.
6) Central Florida Golden Knights – What else can you say? They are undefeated and beat a very good Memphis team twice, and also handled Navy and South Florida.
7) Wisconsin Badgers – Let a close one get away against Ohio State.
8) Auburn Tigers – Beat two teams that were ranked number one during the season.
9) USC Trojans – The Trojans came on at the end of the year but a slow start doomed them.
10) Washington Huskies – Finished strong against rival Washington State.
11) Penn State Nittany Lions – The Lions lost a lead against the Buckeyes and never did recover.
12) Miami Hurricanes – The Canes had a surprise season; next year it will be expected.
13) TCU Horned Frogs – A poor showing doesn’t change the fact that this was a very good team this year.
14) Memphis Tigers – The Tigers lost a heartbreaker to Central Florida.
15) Stanford Cardinal – Came up short against USC.
16) LSU Tigers – Did not play.
17) Notre Dame Fighting Irish – Did not play.
18) Oklahoma State Cowboys – Did not play.
19) Michigan State Spartans – Did not play.
20) Northwestern Wildcats – Did not play.
21) Virginia Tech Hokies – Did not play.
22) N.C. State Wolfpack – Did not play.
23) Boise State Broncos – Got revenge and won the Mountain west over Fresno State.
24) Fresno State Bulldogs – Lost a tough one at Boise.
25) Florida Atlantic – Had a great season, won Conference Championship game.
