Not to be outdone, FOX Sports lead college football analyst Joel Klatt was inspired to release his own personal top 25 rankings. 

Klatt finds no logical justification for ranking the reigning back-to-back champions any lower than the top spot. He expressed his amusement at pundits awarding the highest position to a program other than Georgia, deeming it “ridiculous.”

“You’re simply attempting to stand out. Georgia rightfully holds the preseason number one position, and if you don’t have them at the top, your credibility might be in question,” Klatt said.

Nevertheless, he believes that Michigan boasts the “most exceptional team” ever led by Jim Harbaugh. The Wolverines are viewed as legitimate national championship contenders. 

Klatt’s complete top 25 rankings are as follows…

1. Georgia
2. Michigan
3. Ohio State
4. Alabama
5. Penn State
6. Washington
7. LSU
8. USC
9. Clemson
10. Florida State
11. Utah
12. Tennessee
13. Oregon
14. Texas
15. Oregon State
16. Oklahoma
17. Kansas State
18. Notre Dame
19. TCU
20. Ole Miss
21. North Carolina
22. Iowa
23. Wisconsin
24. Texas Tech
25. UCLA
