There was a question posed to CFP committee chair Boo Corrigan about if there was any consideration if Ohio State was looked at being the No. 1 team in the country.
Here’s the transcript of how the conversation played out:
Q. Last week you said Ohio State was one of the three teams you were considering at No. 1 along with Georgia and Tennessee, or the committee did. I was just curious if Ohio State was still getting any consideration at No. 1, and if that was a reflection on the way that Northwestern win went for them or if it was just Georgia separating with the way it beat Tennessee.
BOO CORRIGAN: Yeah, I think there was consideration given to everyone, but I think as we got more into it, the decisive win by Georgia over Tennessee was the primary reason. Again, you’re looking at Ohio State and the balanced offensive scoring, scoring defense, scoring offense both being in the top 10, averaging 47 points a game. Really good team.
But we felt that Georgia separated.
Ohio State struggled against lowly Northwestern in horrid conditions as it squeaked out a 21-7 win. On the other hand, Georgia took down former No. 1 Tennessee 27-13 on Saturday afternoon.
