When the first college football playoff rankings debuted a few weeks ago ahead of LSU's game against Alabama, the biggest surprise was the Tigers' placement in 10th place -- significantly higher than the AP Top 25 or the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll.
One of the biggest critics of that decision at the time was Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt, who bemoaned the committee's decision to put LSU ahead of several teams he felt were more deserving.

The Tigers proved they belong in the top 10 with an upset win over Alabama that led to an SEC West title and a shot at the college football playoffs if they win.
Those odds look pretty high after LSU stayed in 5th place, one spot ahead of USC, despite the Trojans' road win over UCLA. Once again, Klatt was not happy with the committee's decision.
"This committee is clearly not looking at what has happened over the last few weeks and evaluating it as such," Klatt said. “Remember, LSU beat Alabama — and great, good for them. That was a great game. They beat her on that two-point conversion. They then followed that up with a three-point win over Arkansas a week after Arkansas lost to Liberty. Then LSU plays UAB.
"So, sorry, huh? Why do we honor them? Why are they staying there? That's clearly because the committee wants to honor their past placements or their past ideas of who these teams are, rather than what we actually see on the field."

“By the way, in the same two weeks, USC beat Colorado — and I get it. Colorado isn't a great team right now. But then they follow up on a win away against UCLA,” Klatt said. “This UCLA team, by the way, beat two teams in the committee top 25, Washington and Utah. USC also has the best player I've seen in college football right now in Caleb Williams, who has taken college football by storm in his last five games.
"When things like this happen, it's pretty clear that college football fans are going to distrust the system. That's not good for anyone, and when we reward teams and let teams slip with things like three-point wins against Arkansas and the game against UAB in November, I think that's bad news. In some respects the committee is not even doing its job. Please rate these teams weekly and give us an adjustment based on what's happening on the pitch.”
While there may be legitimate debate over No. 5, the situation will likely take care of itself given that LSU will need to defeat Georgia to stay in the mix, while USC will end the year against Notre Dame and likely Oregon in the Pac- 12 championship completes.
