Note that below are NOT the actual 2022 College Football Playoff rankings – those come out Sunday. This is our prediction and projection of what the final top 25 might be.

This is based on two key beliefs. 1) The College Football Playoff committee almost certainly will go by past precedent and give the most credit to teams that win Power Five conference championships. 2) The committee has never put a team with multiple losses in the top four, but it has put in teams that finished 11-1.
