ESPN under fire for ‘SEC bias’ after tweeting top 11

When college football rankings are being released, generally, the entire list of 25 teams are ranked, or sometimes just the top 10.

ESPN, however, thought they might mix that list up a little bit and on Sunday they Tweeted not the top 10 teams, but the top 11 teams.

New AP Top 11:
1. Ohio State
2. TCU
3. Baylor
4. Michigan State
5. Utah
6. Clemson
7. LSU
8. Alabama
9. Texas A&M
10. Oklahoma
11. Florida

Eleven seems like a pretty arbitrary number to many who are accusing ESPN of having, yet again, an “SEC bias”.

It may not seem like a big deal, but college football fans are pretty upset about the whole thing.

The SEC bias is real @espn

Lol SEC bias much???? Who does a top 11 other than to show off 1 more SEC team….smh ESPN

It’s unlikely that ESPN will respond to all the viral hate or even explain why that eleventh team was added to the list, but even if they did, it probably wouldn’t matter to all those fans out there who have already decided that ESPN is totally biased.
