The AP Top 25 poll following Week 13 of the college football season will soon be released, but ESPN’s Brett McMurphy is getting out ahead of the game and has released his ballot for the world to see.
As many would expect, the top three teams in the nation according to McMurphy are unbeaten Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson.
Filling out the final College Football Playoff spot on McMurphy’s ballot is Pac-12 leader Washington, while Michigan falls to No. 5 after its loss to the Buckeyes.
Fellow Big Ten teams Wisconsin and Penn State, which will face off next weekend in the Big Ten Championship Game, sit close behind at No. 6 and No. 7, so moving into the playoff picture is well within reach.
Oklahoma, Colorado and Oklahoma State round out the top ten.
