SEC dominates first College Football Playoff rankings

Q9ivmrl7jxy90mkuvgri

The rankings, formulated by the NCAA's playoff committee, are based on current resumes and in turn the poll is essentially reset and re-ranked each week.

The top four at the end of the season advance to the College Football Playoff.

With these first set of rankings do not get too excited or too depressed in seeing where your favorite team is at in the pecking order.

MI (7-1) came in at No. 5, with Georgia (7-1), Oklahoma (7-1), Washington State (7-1), Kentucky (7-1) and Ohio State (7-1) rounding out the top 10. The same four teams are Nos.

Lawrence completed 20 of 37 passes for 314 yards before staying on the sideline for good late in the third quarter. I can't argue with Iowa's placement when it comes to those four two-loss teams considering the quality of each of those team's losses.

Eight of the 16 teams that have made the playoff in the first four years were ranked in the top four in the first rankings, including Georgia, Alabama and Clemson last year. Clemson was the only team to be somewhere in the top four in all six rankings from the committee. "We just have so much work to do". The 6-foot-6 freshman supplanted starter Kelly Bryant after four games - Bryant became the fourth Clemson QB to transfer since Lawrence's arrival on campus in January - and has steadily grown into his role. Clemson was No. 1 in every committee top 25 in 2015 and Alabama was top-ranked in all six 2016 rankings.

But it is a long way to December 2 when the final rankings are announced, and the Bulldogs do have some upward mobility playing in the Mountain West Conference. ESPN's Football Power Index gives the Knights at least a 75-percent chance of beating Temple, Navy and Cincinnati at home and South Florida on the road. It seemed to send a signal the committee would be different from traditional polls that tended to honor win-loss record above all.

All season, BC's accomplishments have been traced back to its 2008 counterpart-the last Eagles team to crack the AP Poll and make it to the ACC Championship.

As expected, undefeated juggernaut Alabama was ranked first, followed by Clemson, LSU and Notre Dame. Victor could still be a non-factor if it loses in the SEC championship game or before that juncture.

The biggest takeaway from these rankings is that if Georgia or Kentucky wins out and beats Alamba in a close SEC Championship game, then the conference we all love to hate will get two teams in again, maybe even at the Wolverines expense.

Florida State: Visits No. 22 North Carolina State next Saturday, the second of three straight ranked opponents on the schedule.
