Tuesday’s top four looked like this... Chair of the College Football Playoff Committee, Gary Barta, discussed why Ohio State jumped Alabama...
“Two great teams,” Barta started. “Both Ohio State and Alabama, both of them have Heisman Trophy candidates at quarterback and this past week, though, the dominating win over Michigan State certainly got the committee’s attention. The offense of Ohio State—just total domination. And the defense playing much better. They’ve been playing better week after week…Alabama is still a great football team, has a wonderful win against Ole Miss. The last few weeks, just not showing as much domination on defense. Two great teams, but when the vote came down, Ohio State came ahead of Alabama.”
