No joke, but how is Auburn ranked in the top 10? They haven’t beaten anyone good. These subjective polls are a joke. Thank God for the CFP committee.

So sick of everyone giving poll love to Ohio State every year. They are so overrated. They lost to two teams (one ranked, the other not ranked) by a combined total of 46 points! Penn State lost to two ranked teams by a combined total of four points! Penn State, especially after OSU’s loss to Iowa, should be ranked ahead of OSU.
