With the Big Ten entering the fray, Ohio State jumps into the top two immediately, and three other Big Ten schools make it in. But the SEC still reigns over the top 25.


The CFB Pod: The Big Ten is BACK! The guys examine how the conference went from postponing its season to an eight-game schedule start in October

David Pollack and Kevin Negandhi kick off the podcast with Adam Rittenberg after the breaking news of the Big Ten playing an eight-game season starting October 24. The guys get into how rapid testing was the game changer in the conference’s decision, the lack of flexibility with the shortened timeline of the season and if players will consider opting back in. Then, Pollack and Negandhi discuss how the Big Ten screwed this whole thing up, why the Pac-12 is even more behind in college football, how the conference stacks up behind Ohio State and D’Eriq King looking ready to scare ACC defenses.
