Fox Sports’ Tim Brando weighs in after first College Football Playoff rankings

When the College Football Playoff committee released the first of six rankings Tuesday, some were surprised to see which program topped the list. 

Ohio State is the No. 1 team in the CFP ranking with Georgia, Michigan and Florida State rounding out the top four. 

The Bulldogs, who have been the No. 1 team in The Associated Press Top 25 for 20 consecutive weeks, were relegated to the second spot in the only poll that matters. 

The committee clearly took strength of schedule into consideration for the first ranking of the year, and Ohio State’s two wins over top-10 opponents were more impressive than Georgia’s less-than-impressive schedule and lone win over an AP Top 25 opponent in No. 20 Kentucky. 

“So, you have to say Michigan has played to a standard that they have set, not what their opposition has set,” Brando said, adding that Michigan has not been pushed in games like Georgia has, at least early in the year. 

Week 10 of the college football season is a loaded slate with five matchups between Top 25 teams.
