Georgia tops initial College Football Playoff rankings

Indianapolis To Host 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship

Rece Davis, Kirk Herbstreit, Joey Galloway, Booger McFarland and Jesse Palmer gathered around the table to present the first College Football Playoff rankings show of the 2017 season on Halloween night, officially launching us into the month that ultimately develops and crowns champions.

Following Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson in Tuesday's initial rankings were Oklahoma at No. 5, Ohio State at No. 6, Penn State at No. 7, TCU at No. 8, Wisconsin at No. 9 and Miami at No. 10.

The playoff committee decisions didn't draw much ire on social media, but Clemson's loss to unranked Syracuse was a go-to for unhappy fanbases nationwide. The 1-2 punch, however, is going to fire up the latest round of #SECBias.

"The debate, as passionate as the discussion for teams 3 through 7 was, was even more passionate for teams 1 and 2", Hocutt said. Is the Big Ten in trouble?

Person of Interest in NYC Terror Attack Has Been Found
Federal prosecutors in NY have filed terrorism charges against an Uzbek immigrant in the deadly truck attack on a NY bike path. At a news conference FBI Assistant Director in Charge Bill Sweeney said , "We've found him, and we'll leave it at that".

Those first six teams control their own destiny. The Wolverines are No. 38 in this week's Sagarin Ratings, but several ranked teams had higher strength-of-schedule ratings, including No. 24 Michigan State (16th), No. 20 North Carolina State (26th), No. 17 USC (7th) and No. 15 Iowa State (22nd). Running it up against Michigan State this week would be a start, but Penn State's final three games against Rutgers, Nebraska and Maryland might not grab enough attention.

Prior to this past week's loss at Ohio State, the Nittany Lions were looking like a top-ranked team.

Although the Badgers are the only undefeated team remaining in the Big 10, they are still ranked behind two other conference opponents that both have losses. But this is hardly unexpected.

"Auburn, if they were somehow able to knock off Georgia and Alabama, sitting there with two losses?"

Jurgen Klopp confirms big injury blow for Liverpool
Klopp generally plays 4-3-3 and there is no doubt their offensive three is pretty decent regardless of who is selected. Klopp said: "I am sure he is greedy for more starting selections and of course that opportunity will come".

Wisconsin still has MI and another chance against a Big Ten East powerhouse if it gets back to Indianapolis. Washington (7-1) 13. Virginia Tech (7-1) 14.

Left out of the top four were Ohio State (7-1), which beat Penn State (7-1) this past weekend and is No. 3 in the AP poll, and Wisconsin (8-0), which is ranked No. 4 in the AP poll.

The Bulldogs are a flawless 8-0 and coming off a convincing win over Florida on the road as this poll will eventually set the playoffs for college football on New Year's Eve and then eight days later with the title game in Atlanta.

The Tigers, however, have a few built-in advantages.

India proud of its unity in diversity: Modi
The Prime Minister also administered the unity pledge to thousands of children gathered at Major Dhyanchand National Stadium for the run.

Nobody else in the hunt has a chance to beat No. 1 and No. 2 in the regular season. It's an almost-impossible scenario, but Auburn has been down that road before.
