The College Football Playoff is a thing that everyone loves, and that everyone loves to talk about. It is a thing that everyone loves, and that everyone loves to talk about, and that everyone loves to talk about, and that everyone loves to talk about, but not all of us have to love to talk about it. So let’s get this out of the way: I love College Football.
After a week of college football, the College Football Playoff Rankings have been released. Today’s update included a few minor changes to the top 10, but none of the major shakeups you might have expected. What does this mean for the upcoming games? Here are a few things to know from the latest College Football Playoff Rankings.
The College Football Playoff is set to begin in two weeks with the semifinals in the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl. The BCS has ruled that FBS teams must be ranked in the top 12 in order for them to be in the playoff. With that in mind, I will list my picks for who will win in the Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and the national championship game.

It may be Week 1 of the 2021 college football season, but our writers’ playoff predictions are once again filled with familiar names.
What impact will the best games on Saturday have on the College Football Playoff race? What are the chances for the top four right now? The solutions may be found in the Allstate Playoff Predictor. Check back every week to see how the odds have changed since the previous week’s games.
Following a 44-13 victory against Miami on Saturday, top-ranked and reigning champion Alabama landed in the No. 1 position on all but one of our writers’ rankings, similar to last year. Bryce Young, the Crimson Tide’s new quarterback, spent no time proving he’s ready for the spotlight, throwing for 344 yards and four touchdowns in his debut start for Nick Saban. Alabama’s defense also played up to the preseason expectations, allowing just three points in the first half.
The Most Popular Playoff Predictions

Not to be outdone, Georgia’s defense sacked Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei seven times in Week 1’s biggest battle, securing a 10-3 win against the Tigers. The Bulldogs’ offense may need some work, but their defense is already in midseason form, which means they’re a lock to reach the CFP after only one week.
Oklahoma, unlike Georgia and Alabama, battled early on but hung on to defeat Tulane 40-35 in the season opener. The Sooners appear on just five of the twelve lists because to the close call.
The reigning Big Ten champion Ohio State Buckeyes opened the season with a 45-31 victory against Minnesota on Thursday, and the 14-point victory has them in all but one of our writers’ selections. This season, CJ Stroud has taken over as quarterback for Justin Fields in Columbus, and his stat line versus the Golden Gophers was similar to that of his predecessor. He threw for 294 yards and four touchdowns on the day. One of the most anticipated nonconference games of the season will be Ohio State’s matchup with Oregon on Saturday.
Other teams on the fringes and receiving votes are Texas A&M, Cincinnati and, yes, the 2-0 UCLA Bruins. One-loss Clemson is still hanging around in one of the rankings as well.

After the first week of college football, it’s time to take a look at some of the big picture things. Will the playoff committee’s first venture into the “wild-card” round include third place TCU, or does Michigan deserve to be in the discussion heading into week 2? Can Oklahoma or Ohio State control their conference title aspirations with conference championship games looming, or will the Big 12 be resilient enough to handle the conference’s first non-conference loss?.
