The College Football Playoff Committee released its first top 25 rankings of the 2015 season on Tuesday night, featuring Clemson at No. 1 and LSU at No. 2. Ohio State checked in at No. 3 and Alabama at No. 4.
On Tuesday night, the College Football Playoff selection committee will release its first rankings of the season. From now until the end of the regular season, these are the only rankings that truly matter.
For the first time since the Notre Dame game, Clemson gave its opponent some hope. NC State scored quickly on its opening possession and just before halftime the Wolfpack was up 20-19 and threatening to score again.
Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a picture for a team or particular game.
