Network Ranking Week 11

by Patrick Rhamey

It was only a matter of time before the Playoff Committee tried to sneak in a PAC-12 or Big 10 team.  It's shameless politicking, and SEC West aside, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Oklahoma, TCU, Marshall (yes, Marshall), Baylor, West Virginia, Louisiana Tech (yes, Louisiana Tech), Nebraska, and Oklahoma State are all more deserving of the CFB Playoff at this point in the season than Oregon.  What we see in this week's CFB Playoff ranking is West Coast bias at its most extreme.
