3 prominent SEC head coaches ranked Ohio State outside the Top 4 in final Coaches Poll
Three SEC head coaches appear to disagree with the College Football Playoff committee’s ranking of Ohio State.
Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher, Georgia’s Kirby Smart and Alabama’s Nick Saban all ranked the Buckeyes outside the top four in their final Coaches Poll this week.
Here’s a glimpse at their top 10s:
Smart’s poll might be the most outrageous of the three, as he has the three-loss Florida Gators slotted in at No. 4.
However, all three of these polls were outdone by Dabo Swinney ranking Ohio State No. 11 in his Coaches Poll. Swinney had the Buckeyes behind multiple three-loss teams and a pair of G5 programs in Cincinnati and Coastal Carolina.
Fortunately for Ohio State, SEC coaches aren’t in charge of picking who makes the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes and their 6-0 record will be facing Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1, 2021 for the right to play for a national title.
