Joel Klatt reshuffles his CFB rankings. Where is Ohio State football?

It’s time to take stock of another wild week in college football that saw Ohio State sit by. Like almost every Saturday, we’ve had some pretty amazing games and some pretty epic surprises to stir up this whole college football playoff race.

Alabama went to Tennessee, and USC couldn’t quite seal the deal on the road against Utah. Those two games alone took two more undefeated teams off the board. It wasn’t eliminated in the race for trophies and confetti, either, but it drastically reset everyone’s expectations and mindset as to which teams are the best in the country.

One of those who had to rearrange his rankings is Fox analyst Joel Klatt. He gives us his opinion rankings after each week, and this time he’s kept it pretty simple with just four teams. Alabama and USC are both gone from his top 4, and that leaves us with a new addition to his top 4.

Here’s how Klatt ranked his top teams, emerging from a chaotic Week 7 at the top.

No. 4 – Michigan Wolverines
