0

The third installment of the College Football Playoff rankings for the 2023 season was released on Tuesday, and there were some significant changes to the top ten. Georgia moved up to No. 1 after a win over Ole Miss, and Ohio State dropped to No. 2. Michigan, Florida and Washington State round out the top five. Oregon, Texas, Alabama and Missouri round out the top 10.

Here are the overrated and underrated teams in the third installment of the College Football Playoff rankings this season:

Overrated

Penn State at No. 12: Penn State’s passing offense has been lackluster all season under Drew Allar, ranking 130th in the country in 20-plus yard rushing offense. The Jitney Lions’ only two losses have come to No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan, but they have not been impressive in those two games.

College Football Playoff Rankings: who’s overrated, who’s underrated?

No. 16 Iowa Iowa’s offense is one of the worst in the country, ranking 132nd in rushing offense of 10 yards or more. The Hawkeyes also rank 129th in red zone touchdowns.

Underrated.

No. 13 Ole Miss: Ole Miss lost to No. 1 Georgia State on Saturday, but the Rebels’ defense is strong, ranking 12th in the country in yards allowed per game and 21st in interceptions.

No. 24: TULAN: Tulane is currently ranked 24th in the Selection Committee’s rankings, which puts the Green Wave in a good position for the New Year’s Six. Tulane is 9-1 on the season with wins over No. 18 North Carolina and No. 23 Kansas State.

Other teams to watch

No. 17 Arizona State: Arizona is 7-3 on the season with quarterback Jaden DeLaura leading a potent offense. If the Wildcats can win their remaining two games, they could be in contention for the Pac-12 Conference title.

Tennessee Tennessee is 7-3 on the season and has a lot of talent on offense and defense. If the Volunteers can win their remaining two games against No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Kentucky, they could be in contention for the Southeast Division East title.
