Ohio State Is Obviously Better Than LSU, Says CFB Playoff Chairman
Ohio State is obviously better than LSU, says CFB Playoff Chairman Rob Mullens.
The first College Football Playoff rankings of the year were unveiled on Tuesday night, and there were some very notable surprises.
Clemson, the undefeated defending champions, were dropped all the way to No. 5 behind Penn State – presumably due to the fact that they play in the weakest Power Five conference.
Alabama, arguably the most dominant team of the last decade, was No. 3 – likely due to having a weaker strength of schedule than the two schools above them.
And finally, Ohio State and LSU sat at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively.
Many LSU fans were a bit peeved over being second to the Buckeyes despite seemingly having more quality wins on their record.
When pressed on why the Tigers were No. 2, Mullens insisted that it was moreso due to how good Ohio State has looked thus far than anything else.
Mullens on Ohio State over LSU: “When you watch Ohio State, they have performed at a very consistent level, really good on both sides of the ball.” Cites explosive playmakers on offense and Chase Young as disruptive.

“When you watch Ohio State, they have performed at a very consistent level, really good on both sides of the ball,” he replied.
One could obviously also argue that LSU is the most balanced they have been in a generation, but apparently Mullens is not as impressed with that.
Fortunately for all involved, there will be plenty of opportunities for these schools to prove who is truly No. 1.
LSU will take on Alabama this weekend in a battle for SEC supremacy, and Ohio State will square off against Penn State in mid-November for the Big Ten crown.
Stay tuned, folks – it should be a fun couple of months.
