Ask Farrell: Who is and isn't getting respect in first rankings?

Dabo Swinney speaking to a referee

Penn State is ranked in the top four of the College Football Playoff for the first time ever, landing in the No. 4 spot.

Georgia's path to the College Football Playoff is simple: Beat Missouri, Auburn, Texas A&M and Georgia Tech, and then win the SEC Championship Game, and the Bulldogs are in.

The top four in the selection committee's initial rankings have never all reached the semifinals in the playoff's five-year history. Clemson can claim the loser role again, while all the stories focus on the winners of the LSU-Alabama and Ohio State-Penn State clashes. "There's a lot of football to be played against a lot of really good football teams, so we'll focus on them". Ohio State (8-0) tops the field after a win against fellow Big Ten power Wisconsin. Iowa is ranked No. 18, Wake Forest is 19 and Cincinnati is 20. Currently, neither OR nor Utah own any wins against ranked teams.

The twelfth-year Tigers coach is a motivating teacher who can now play at the angle of disrespect for the "little ol & # 39; Clemson, quot; the rest of the season". The Bayou Tigers go into the super showdown with 'Bama with wins over two Top 25 programs in Florida and Auburn - a win over the Crimson Tide would completely solidify a first- place spot for the remainder of the season. providing LSU doesn't slip up. Clemson has the easiest road of the top four teams by far. Considering their undefeated record, Penn State is viewed as the fifth-best team in the NCAA right now, according to the AP poll.

John McCain pointedly asked Trump Jr . about the tenor of the political rhetoric espoused by both he and his father. They called Trump Jr . a Russian puppet, and he insisted he was just a private citizen and campaign surrogate.

Baylor, meanwhile, may have to wait a bit to get near the top 10 unless teams ahead of it lose. A close look at the resumes of both teams up to this point clearly favors Penn State, and the playoff selection committee recognized that.

Despite the No. 5 ranking, many sportsbooks list the Tigers as one of the favorites to win the national championship. It's about discussing why things occurred and using what we learned in the first rankings to try and project what could happen in the event of an Ohio State loss.

The Tigers, led by quarterback Trevor Lawrence, are set to take on North Carolina State on November 9. Providing LSU wins Saturday against 'Bama, the last remaining challenge left before the final playoff rankings would be in the SEC Championship game. The Demon Deacons (7-1) are now ranked No. 19.

Clemson at SC. PSU travels to undefeated Minnesota this week, but the Gophers' schedule is so weak that they are only No. 17 in the CFP rankings.
