The PSF Committee’s College Football Playoff Rankings before Conference Championship Games

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 came out many weeks ago on Tuesday, October 31st, and that marks the date when it became time for fans to map out their team’s road to the playoff. CFB Experts across the world have been doing the same all throughout November and now are waiting to see who gets in when the final four teams are revealed on the morning of Sunday, December 3rd. But recently, Pro Sports Fandom’s CFB experts formed their own Committee, “The PSF CFB Playoff Committee”, where we will create our own averaged CFB playoff rankings from a panel of 7-10 experts. Your favorite college football experts at PSF are teaming up each week to bring you our very own rankings. After a huge final week of regular season College football, here is the newest edition of the PSF Committee CFB Playoff rankings!

We are going to leave you on this note, our committee sees a big gap between #8 Ohio State and #9 Penn State. This also means that we believe that all of the top eight teams in the rankings have a chance at making the College Football Playoff, whether it be a slim chance or not. There is a slight chance that USC could make it but we decided against it as the events needed to happen would not be enough. Thanks for reading! We hope you enjoyed! Hit us up on Twitter with your thoughts on our rankings and give us your rankings! Peace!
