As I’ve said for weeks, Clemson and Alabama are going to be the top two teams for the foreseeable future. They’re without a doubt both the best teams in their respective conferences.

The Tigers are dominating the ACC and the Crimson Tide look second to none in the SEC.

That leads me to Ohio State. The Buckeyes looked as good as advertised against Nebraska. Justin Fields and company are incredibly talented, and OSU is the only other team in America that belongs in the conversation with Alabama and Clemson.

Finally, Wisconsin is moving up the polls after annihilating Illinois and is ninth. I’ll take it. Climb the ladder, Badgers! Climb the ladder!
