MGoFish Staff 2016 CFB Top 25 Rankings: Late September

Now that we’re four weeks into the college football season, rankings are starting to become legit. Most of the frauds, like Oklahoma and Notre Dame, have shown their true colors while preseason underdogs, like Louisville and Texas A&M, have looked great early on. It’s not too hard to see who are playoff contenders and who will fight to stay in the top 25 for the rest of the year. With that now known, we’ve decided to release our first top 25 rankings of the season.
