Note: If you disagree, feel free to make your own top 15 prediction but please don’t try to pick a fight over a team you think I overrated or underrated. This isn’t my top 15, it’s my prediction for the AP top 15. Thanks
3 Ohio State
7 Notre Dame
10 Penn State
11 West Virginia
I know Texas gets over-hyped a lot by the AP but I think even the AP won’t let UT pass other teams that won or didn’t play based on UT barely beating a team that was curb-stomped by WV and MissSt.
It would take either Penn State sliding 7 slots for their 1 point loss to Ohio State or Stanford sliding 9 slots for their loss to Notre Dame plus UT leap frogging Miami and Kentucky that each won easily.
I will neither agree or disagree with your projections because AP means nothing. No poll means anything until the first CFP poll comes out. When all is said and done I would like to see the playoff consist of Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, and Notre Dame. With the BIG, B12 and PAC12 excluded we would have an 8 team playoff next year.
Because people aren’t voting a top 25 purely on the last two weeks. They are voting based on the season results. Texas Tech has another loss to account for. They are 3-2, not 4-1.
Everybody is really good at critiquing who is getting votes and who isn’t getting votes, but I never see those people submit their own top 25. Try submitting a top 25 list and you will see it’s a lot easier to critique one or two choices than it is to submit a top 25 list that you can justify to everyone.
