Much-respected college football analyst Joel Klatt of Fox Sports was among the first of what promises to be a slew of people to release their “way-too-early” rankings for 2022.
Klatt ranked who he thinks will be the nation’s top-10 teams for 2022 before Monday night’s national championship game and although it really means nothing, Notre Dame fans will still likely be happy to know the Irish made the list.
Also worth noting is that Notre Dame, who sometimes gets knocked for their schedule, had two 2022 opponents ranked ahead of them.
Here is Klatt’s full top-10 rankings:
