Ladies and gentlemen, let me make something perfectly clear to you.
There is no debate. There is no drama. There is no on the fence regarding the College Football Playoff on Saturday night. None whatsoever, regardless of what a certain head coach wants you to think during halftime of the Big Ten championship game Saturday night.
In the history of the College Football Playoff, I have trouble remembering a year where the four selections were as obvious as they are in 2022. Outside of Georgia and Michigan, there are no perfect candidates to fill out the four playoff spots but there are two that are clearly the most deserving.
Here is our projection of the top 10 in Sunday’s College Football Playoff rankings:
