Smeltz’s Week 5 Top 25 College Football Rankings

Penn State Head Coach James Franklin

Here are my college football rankings for Week 4 of the 2022 season.

This is how I see it, and anybody who disagrees is entitled to their opinion.

  1. Georgia— It didn’t look great against Kent State, but doesn’t change how dominated Georgia has been for the rest of the season
  2. Ohio State— Ohio State beat what might be a good Wisconsin team by 31 this week and has destroyed its last three opponents. The only close game the Buckeyes have played were against Notre Dame, who I think is a decent team aside from that awful loss to Marshall.
  3. Alabama— Almost losing to Texas keeps ‘Bama behind Ohio State but the Tide still control their destiny in the national championship race.
  4. Michigan— Jim Harbaugh’s team had a close one against Maryland after a pathetic non-conference slate came to an end. Michigan has games at Iowa and Indiana before its showdown with Penn State Oct. 15.
  5. Clemson— DJ Uiagalelei looked good against Wake Forest, and if he’s clicking, look out.
  6. Kentucky
  7. Tennessee
  8. NC State
  9. Oklahoma State
  10. Penn State— I don’t think Penn State is a national title contender just yet but not a lot of teams have two wins over Power Five opponents on the road through four games. Penn State does.
  11. Washington
  12. Ole Miss
  13. Oregon
  14. Utah
  15. Minnesota
  16. BYU
  17. Baylor
  18. Florida State
  19. Kansas State
  20. Oklahoma
  21. Pitt
  22. Wake Forest
  23. Texas A&M
  24. Kansas
  25. Arkansas
