Louisville players upset over #5 CFB ranking

The College Football Playoff Committee chose Alabama (#1 seed), Ohio State (#2 seed), Michigan (#3 seed) and Clemson (#4 seed) as the four teams projected in the playoff.

CFB Committee chair Kirby Hocutt shared on Tuesday night the committee's reasoning why Clemson was ranked above Louisville.

"Louisville has been viewed as a very talented team," Hocutt said. "There is a small separation between teams two through six. When you look at #4 Clemson and #5 Louisville, Clemson has three wins against CFP top 25 teams compared to one for Louisville at this time and the committee still places a high value on the head to head Clemson has over Louisville at this time as well."

Clemson has the head-to-head win over Louisville, and the Tigers' combined FBS teams they have beaten are 50-29 while Louisville's team wins are a combined 39-51.

The Tigers also have four wins over current ranked teams with Louisville, Auburn, Florida State, and Troy while Louisville only has a ranked win over Florida State.

LV SuperBook has Louisville as a 2.5 point favorite against Clemson if they played again in the playoff.

Several Louisville football players took to Twitter on Tuesday night to voice their displeasure of their #5 ranking in the College Football Playoff ranking.
