Tuesday evening was the release of the first College Football Playoff Rankings of the 2016 season.
Although there are two other polls fans get caught up on (AP & Coaches), the poll that the College Football Playoff committee releases is the actual poll that matters.
Many wondered if the Broncos would even manage to stay within the rankings of the Top 25 in the AP and Coaches Poll after their loss to Wyoming this past weekend. They were slated a No.24 in both polls.
Now they have now cracked the College Football Playoff Rankings.
The Broncos are ranked at No. 24 (again), behind the other Broncos, Western Michigan who is currently unbeaten. WMU is the highest-ranked Group of 5 team.
This is possibly good news for Bronco Nation as the committee has been known to move teams up and down, and they’re not shy about it either.
If Boise State wins-out and gets some help from conference foes, and maybe a possible slip-up by Western Michigan, they may have a shot at a possible NY6 game.
But let’s keep it one game at a time.
You can never predict what may happen in the coming weeks in this college football season.
Here are the results of the first poll:
4. Texas A&M
6. Ohio State
12. Penn State
18. Oklahoma State
19. Virginia Tech
20. West Virginia
21. North Carolina
22. Florida State
23. Western Michigan
24. Boise State
25. Washington State
