The latest edition of the College Football Playoff Rankings is out with Georgia remaining the No. 1 team in the country Tuesday night. The rest of the top 4 features Ohio State, Michigan and TCU.

After the rankings were revealed, CFP chair Boo Corrigan met with the media to answer questions. When asked about comparisons between Ohio State and Michigan, Corrigan admitted those are “two well-balanced teams” on both sides of the ball in the eyes of the committee.

With both teams drawing favorable comparisons, Corrigan was asked if the separation between the two teams simply came down to the nonconference schedule where Ohio State has a win over Notre Dame. Corrigan said he doesn’t believe “there’s anything simple” about the separation between the two teams and that nonconference schedules are just a part of the evaluation.

As far as the overall strengths of the Wolverines, Corrigan noted the dominant win over Penn State, the work of Blake Corum offensively and a top-10 defense:

“Win over Penn State, top-10 defense, giving up just 11 points a game, balanced, Blake Corum and the job he’s done this season,” Corrigan explained. “Again, defensively they’re really solid, and feel good that they’re a solid No. 3 team.”

At the end of the day, the slotting of Ohio State and Michigan at No. 2 and No. 3 overall will not matter much by the conclusion of next weekend. The two sides will face off in Rivalry Weekend, and the winner should come out as the clear No. 2 team in the country.
