“It’s exciting to be back as we kick off the second year of the College Football Playoff,” said selection chairman Jeff Long. “We are little more than half way through the season and a lot of football that remains to be played. This is the first of six rankings. They are the result of games that have been played thus far. Change is guaranteed and that’s what makes college football exciting.”
This was the first official meeting for the selection committee to issue rankings.
The complete rankings are attached and can also be found on the official website of the College Football Playoff at www.collegefootballplayoff.com.
