College Football Playoff Rankings: Fans, media react to Michigan being ranked outside top 4
The 1st College Football Playoff Rankings of the 2022 season are finally here. We now know how the CFP Committee views each contending team to this point.
The top 4 include Tennessee, Ohio State, Georgia, and Clemson in that order. Notably, Michigan was left out of the top 4 in favor of Clemson. These rankings are sure to change by next Tuesday, as either Tennessee or Georgia will exit Week 10 with a loss.
Fans and media alike were shocked by the decision to put Clemson ahead of Michigan.
Clemson being ranked ahead of Michigan makes zero sense at this point

Michigan would beat Clemson by 17+ points

Clemson is objectively not as good as Michigan

Clearly not all college football fans believe that Clemson is better than Michigan. Worth noting, Clemson has 3 ranked wins compared to Michigan’s 1.
Elsewhere in the B1G, Penn State comes in at No. 15 and Illinois at No. 16.
