OU 5th, OSU 11th in College Football Playoff rankings

College football's national championship game coming to Los Angeles in 2023

According to the NCAAF writers at RealSport, here is a look at what we can expect when the initial CFP rankings of the season are released.

Following Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson in Tuesday's initial rankings were Oklahoma at No. 5, Ohio State at No. 6, Penn State at No. 7, TCU at No. 8, Wisconsin at No. 9 and Miami at No. 10. Notre Dame with one loss but three convincing wins over ranked opponents is now seven spots higher than next weekend's opponent Miami who enters this weekend unbeaten for their showdown with Virginia Tech. Yet, the committee isn't buying the Badgers' non-conference schedule of Utah State, BYU and Florida Atlantic. It's not that I disagree with the No. 16 ranking, I just wasn't sure the poll would go that high with it. The following two seasons, it was the Clemson Tigers who won their semifinal game and made it to the title game, coming home as the national champs last season with a thrilling win over Alabama. Both teams have wins over a ranked team, Auburn over MSU and MSU over LSU, so 49-10 is one of the biggest deciding factors here. How did they respond to being the No. 4 team?

It's the first time in the short history of the college football playoff that the same league produced the top two teams. Hocutt noted those three victories against teams in the committee's top 25, along with the close loss to Georgia as the reason for the Irish being the highest ranked in a group of one-loss teams from three to seven.

In the meantime, Notre Dame needs its quality wins to remain quality wins while continuing to win each weekend in order to maintain its #3 ranking.

Defending national champion Clemson got the fourth spot in the inaugural rankings, with the Tigers followed by Oklahoma, Ohio State, Penn State, TCU, Wisconsin and Miami. You stop me when you see N.C. State's done that impresses you the way MSU's wins against LSU, Texas A&M and Kentucky did.

At the top are two unbeaten SEC teams in Georgia and Alabama. Ohio State is No. 3 in the Associated Press poll, five spots ahead of the Sooners. They weren't ranked by the committee at any point in 2015 or 2016.

When the season first started, both the Seminoles and Clemson were ranked in the top five nationally and there was serious talk about the ACC sending BOTH teams to the system this year. Since then, Oklahoma has been anything but impressive in their wins and even lost to Iowa State for the first time since 1990. The strongest team Wisconsin has defeated is Northwestern (5-3) and Miami has only two victories against teams with winning records, Hocutt noted.
