The media is reacting heavily to Michigan football being ranked behind Clemson in the College Football Playoff rankings | Techy Kings


The first College Football Playoff rankings came out on Tuesday night, and they really surprised.

Tennessee came in ranked No. 1, which was less surprising than Michigan football being ranked No. 5, with Clemson at No. 4.

The Wolverines certainly had an easy nonconference schedule, but as the maize and blue have gone out and won the games on the schedule convincingly, which includes a win over ranked Penn State. Clemson has three-ranked wins, but those measuring strength of schedule have the Tigers behind Michigan in that regard.

The media was shocked that the Maize and Blue were ranked behind Clemson. They took to social media to express their confusion.
