But, before we jump into that, let’s take a look at where ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI) has teams ranked now that the season has come to an end. If you’ve been following this all year, you’ll know that these rankings are going to look much different than what the selection committee’s Top 25 looks like in a few hours.

Ohio State still leads the way for the B1G, sitting at the No. 2 spot. Five other B1G squads earned a spot in the Top 25:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Clemson
  4. Georgia
  5. Oklahoma
  6. Notre Dame
  7. Florida
  8. Wisconsin
  9. Texas A&M
  10. Texas
  11. Iowa
  12. Iowa State
  13. Indiana
  14. Oregon
  15. BYU
  16. Cincinnati
  17. USC
  18. Auburn
  19. UCF
  20. Oklahoma State
  21. Penn State
  22. TCU
  23. Northwestern
  24. Arizona State
  25. North Carolina

  • No. 41: Minnesota
  • No. 45: Nebraska
  • No. 46: Michigan
  • No. 51: Purdue
  • No. 70: Rutgers
