The Athletic's Andy Staples says he 'wouldn't be shocked' if Texas A&M is No. 4 in first CFP rankings
The Texas A&M Aggies are No. 5 in the latest AP Poll, and now the wait is on for the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season.
The rankings come out on Tuesday night. Many believe Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Clemson will be the top 4 teams, in some order, but the Aggies certainly have a case for being in the top 4, as their only loss was to Alabama.
On Monday’s edition of “The Paul Finebaum Show,” The Athletic’s Andy Staples said he wouldn’t be surprised to see the Aggies in the No. 4 spot:

That would certainly be surprising to many, as Clemson was without star QB Trevor Lawrence for its loss at Notre Dame.
Still, this is a crazy season where anything can happen, so we’ll see where the Aggies end up in the debut 2020 CFP rankings on Tuesday night.
