For the most part, it’s been a dull year in Philadelphia sports. The Sixers have…well, sucked for a third straight year, the Eagles played very poorly and wound up missing the playoffs for the second-straight season, and the Phillies are just getting started. In the matter of a week though, sports has become the talk of Philadelphia. Dull no more, the city is buzzing with talk of all major sports teams. To get a better idea of just how much has changed in a week, let’s take a look at the week in review for Philly sports.

collegeplayoffs

Ahhh…….November. The seasons are in transition, the World Series just reached its conclusion (Congratulations to Kansas City) , the NHL and NBA seasons are in just about full swing, and for football…..it’s time to get serious, especially for the College Football scene. So with that, I welcome you to the 1st installment of the TalkSportsPhilly College Football Bowl Projections. During the course of the next 5 weeks, I will be making my projections for the College Football Playoff Games, the “New Year’s Six” games, as well as provide projections for both Temple and Penn State and where they might end up for bowl season, so with that in mind……..Let’s get Started.

Playoff Picture

So earlier, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee released their first Top 25 poll of the season. This group of 12 individuals ranging from former Athletic Directors, to former Head Coaches, to even former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice meet every week in a sequestered room in Grapevine Texas to come up with this poll. So some of you might be saying to yourselves, “What goes into this poll???” or “What does this committee base their decisions on?”

Well, the short answer is in 3 simple parts: Strength of Schedule, Head-to-Head, and Conference Championships. The last one could definitely be the tipping point come that 1st Sunday in December (Just ask TCU and Baylor last year about that). The top 4 teams in that final poll will meet in the College Football Playoff Semifinals on New Year’s Eve at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida and the Cotton Bowl Classic in Arlington, Texas (Site of last years National Championship Game). The pair of winners will then meet on Monday, January 11th, 2016 in Glendale, Arizona to crown a National Champion. So now that the poll has been explained, here is the 1st Top 25 poll of the playoff season:

College Football Playoff Top 25 as of 11-3-2015
1 Clemson 8-0
2 LSU 7-0
3 Ohio State 8-0
4 Alabama 7-1
5 Notre Dame 7-1
6 Baylor 7-0
7 Michigan State 8-0
8 TCU 8-0
9 Iowa 8-0
10 Florida 7-1
11 Stanford 7-1
12 Utah 7-1
13 Memphis 8-0
14 Oklahoma State 8-0
15 Oklahoma 7-1
16 Florida State 7-1
