Ohio State Inches By Michigan, Washington Jumps Clemson in Rankings

Posted on

It’s not often that games live up to their pregame build up, but college football was treated to a spectacular contest Saturday as Ohio State squeaked by arch rival Michigan 30-27 in double overtime.  In other notable news, Washington, based on playing a superior opponent, jumped Clemson to take the #3 position in the Billingsley Report. Both teams won handily, but Washington State was a far superior opponent for Washington above South Carolina for Clemson.

The CFP Committee has it’s hands full this week with a very tight choice for the #3, 4, 5 and 6 positions. The Top 4 will be chosen to play for the National Championship, and other than Alabama and Ohio State, very little separates the next 5 or 6 teams. Still in consideration are Washington, Clemson, Wisconsin, Michigan, Colorado, Penn State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. The Sooners and Cowboys play this Saturday in the annual “Bedlam” Game.
