Every college football fan knows what the CFP Selection Committee is. They select the four best teams for a college football playoff based off of the eye test, strength of schedule, records, wins over common opponents, and conference championships. The first edition of the rankings will come out in a few weeks on Wednesday, October 31st, and that marks the date when it becomes time for fans to map out their team’s road to the playoff. CFB Experts across the world will be doing the same all throughout November and will be waiting to see who gets in when the final four teams are revealed on the morning of Sunday, December 2nd. But since last season, Pro Sports Fandom’s CFB writers formed their own committee, “The PSF CFB Playoff Committee”, where we will create our own averaged CFB playoff rankings from a panel of 5-7 experts. Your favorite college football guys at PSF are teaming up each week to bring you our very own rankings. After a huge week 7 of the regular season in college football, here is the first edition of the PSF Committee CFB Playoff rankings!
