UofL FOOTBALL | Cards at #7 in First CFB Playoff Rankings
11/01/2016 07:18 PM
The Louisville football team is ranked #7 in the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season, which were released Tuesday night.
The #7 Cardinals (7-1) are sandwiched in between #6 Ohio St. (7-1) and #8 Wisconsin (6-2).
What this likely means is that the Cards will need some sort of help in order to get into the top four spots in the rankings by season’s end.
Louisville’s lone loss was to Clemson, who is #2 in the rankings, in early October.
The ACC has five teams in the initial rankings: #2 Clemson, #7 Louisville, #19 Virginia Tech, #21 UNC and #22 Florida St.
This week’s CFB Playoff top ten rankings look like this:
1. Alabama (8-0)
2. Clemson (8-0)
3. Michigan (8-0)
4. Texas A&M (7-1)
5. Washington (8-0)
6. Ohio St. (7-1)
7. Louisville (7-1)
8. Wisconsin (6-2)
9. Auburn (6-2)
10. Nebraska (7-1)
The top four in the final rankings of the season will earn spots in this season’s College Football Playoff.
