The 2022 initial College Football Playoff Top 25 rankings were released on Tuesday night. Instead of looking at the entire Top 25, we’ll look at the Top 6 since those are the teams who may battle for the final four spots in the College Football Playoff come December and January.
A Southeastern Conference team is leading the pack. No, it’s not the Georgia Bulldogs or the Alabama Crimson Tide.
Note: Game times are Eastern Standard Time
The Tennessee Volunteers are the top team. They have an 8-0 record. They have a huge matchup with No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday on CBS at 3:30 pm at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are the No. 2 team in the rankings. The 8-0 Buckeyes have a game they are expected to win against the 1-7 Northwestern Wildcats at noon on ABC at Ryan Field in Evanston, Illinois.
As mentioned, the Georgia Bulldogs are No. 3. They have a mega matchup with the No. 1 Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday.
Two former College Football Playoff National Champions make up the final three teams. Two-time College Football Playoff National Champion Clemson Tigers are the No. 4 team. The Tigers, who are 8-0, are on the road against the 5-3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 7:30 pm on NBC on Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana.
The Michigan Wolverines are the No. 5 team. The Wolverines — who made their first CFP appearance in 2021 — are unbeaten with an 8-0 mark.
On Saturday, they are on the road against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at 7:30 pm on the Big Ten Network at SHI Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey.
The final team in the Top 6 has won the most College Football Playoff National Championships since it was launched in 2014. The three-time CFP National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide are 7-1.
The Crimson Tide are on the road with one of their rivalry games. They face the No. 15 LSU Tigers, who are 6-2, at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at 7 pm on ESPN.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
