Fox Sports gives their college football top 10
Plenty of people disagree with the College Football Playoff committee’s weekly rankings. But Fox Sports seems to agree with them, at least for one week.
Fox Sports has put together a 13-member committee to compile its own college football rankings. On Sunday, they released their own rankings, and their top four was identical to the CFP’s rankings from last week.
Clemson was No. 1, Alabama was No. 2, Ohio State was No. 3 and Notre Dame was No. 4.
Clemson defeated Syracuse 37-27. Alabama dominated then-No. 17 Mississippi State 31-6, sacking quarterback Dak Prescott nine times. Ohio State beat Illinois 28-3 and Notre Dame knocked off Wake Forest 28-7.
The rest of Fox’s top 10 looked different, however, after three teams in the CFP top 10 lost. Oklahoma State was No. 5, Iowa was sixth, Oklahoma climbed to No. 7 after beating Baylor on Saturday, Florida is now No. 8, Michigan State is ninth and Baylor falls to No. 10.
Fox only ranked the top 10.
Fox’s committee consisted of: Colin Cowherd, Bruce Feldman, Matt Leinart, Stewart Mandel, Joel Klatt, Tim Brando, Molly McGrath, Brady Quinn, Spencer Tillman, Petros Papadakis, Rob Stone, Clay Travis and Dave Wannstedt.
The actual College Football Playoff rankings will be released on Tuesday night.
