College Football Playoff Ranking Rigged For Ohio State, Says Fox Sports
The College Football Playoff is rigged for Ohio State, says Fox Sports.
Following the release of the postseason rankings on Tuesday night, there was no change among the top four teams in the nation.
Just as was the case last week, the rankings had Ohio State at No. 1, followed by LSU, Clemson and Georgia.
Some people did not quite agree with these rankings, though.
Clay Travis of Fox Sports fame tweeted out some controversial takes after the fact, alleging a conspiracy was at play.
Rig job in effect by the CFB playoff committee: Wisconsin, Penn State & Michigan are ranked seven spots higher in CFB rankings than in AP or Coaches Poll. UF, Bama & AU are six spots lower in CFP than in AP or Coaches. Ohio State is being protected to keep LSU from one seed.

“Rig job in effect by the CFB playoff committee: Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan are ranked seven spots higher in CFB rankings than in AP or Coaches Poll,” Travis tweeted.
“Florida, Alabama and Auburn are six spots lower in CFP than in AP or Coaches. Ohio State is being protected to keep LSU from one seed.”
Travis did not stop there, though.
“The Big Ten teams — except Minnesota who Ohio State didn’t play — are being insanely overvalued in the college football playoff rankings,” he continued.
“All committee member ballots should have to be made public at end of year to make this transparent,” Travis added.
“The one seed matters this year because the team seeded one, either LSU or Ohio State, would be a big favorite over Utah, OU or Baylor and get to avoid Clemson.”
Is Travis right about a conspiracy being in play? That is up to each individual college football fan to decide on their own.
