Tennessee, Ohio State, Georgia and Clemson lead first College Football Playoff rankings

Nov 2, 2022

Tennessee is atop the first set of College Football Playoff rankings.

The Volunteers lead Ohio State, Georgia and Clemson in the top four of the inaugural 2022 CFP rankings released Tuesday night. Tennessee (8-0) is in the top spot because it has two wins over teams ranked in the top 10.

There are six teams at 8-0 at the top level of college football and they occupy six of the top seven CFP spots. And there will be no more than five undefeated teams after Week 10. Tennessee travels to Georgia on Saturday in the biggest game of the season to date. This top four is going to change next week.

Michigan is just outside the top four at No. 5 while TCU was at No. 7 behind one-loss Alabama.

That Alabama loss came to Tennessee on a last-second field goal. And the committee really likes LSU. The Tigers are the top two-loss team at No. 10. LSU was blown out at home by the Volunteers.
