Joel Klatt gives his final top ten before the College Football Playoff ranking

OK. It’s time. All the games are complete in college football for the 2022 season after the conference championship games took center stage this weekend,

and all that’s left is the reveal of the College Football Playoff rankings that will determine the four teams that will be a part of the 2022 playoffs.

Each week, we like to get a peek at what Fox College Football analyst Joel Klatt believes the top teams are and he provided one last look before we get the real deal Sunday on ESPN.

There is a bit of a shakeup with the losses by TCU and USC over the weekend — all while Georgia and Michigan continued to stay unbeaten.

The big question is where Ohio State and Alabama fall.

Here is Klatt’s final top ten of the college football season and what he thinks should happen.
