Michigan Fifth in Inaugural College Football Playoff Rankings

Only four can get in, and in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season, the Wolverines are just on the outside looking in.

Of course, there’s a long time between the first playoff ranking and the final one in December.

Michigan, like in the AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches Poll, placed fifth in the very first College Football Playoff ranking of 2018. But, with the No. 1 and No. 3 teams playing each other on Saturday, should Michigan win out, everything is in front of the maize and blue.

No. 5 Michigan has played (and lost to) No. 4 Notre Dame to open the season, and this week, it hosts No. 14 Penn State. Arch rival Ohio State is ranked at No. 10 after having lost to Purdue two weeks ago.
