After the unveiling of the second round of college football playoff standings on Tuesday, two of the most talked about teams were Michigan and Penn State, but for different reasons.
The Wolverines, through no fault of their own, have become a topic of conversation because of their ranking. They placed at No.6, one spot ahead of Michigan State, despite a Spartans head-to-head victory over Michigan. Playoff Committee Chairman Gary Barta went on to explain why the Wolverines were ahead of Michigan State, which still left a lot to be desired.

The other topic of conversation was about Penn State, which has yet to break into the top two rankings. The Nittany Lions are 6-3, the same record as five other teams in this week’s top-25. Two of their wins are against the current top 20 teams, as are two of their losses.
They’ll finally be looking to carve out a place in the standings next week as the Michigan No.6 heads to Beaver Stadium. Penn State is 3-3 against Michigan since Jim Harbaugh led the Corn and Blue, but the Nittany Lions have won the last two games.
Michigan could do without two of its star backs at Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards, while Penn State should be relatively healthy as they look to weather the surprise and move up the rankings.
