‘Airing it Out’: Did the College Football Playoff committee get Penn State right at No. 4?

The first round of College Football Playoff rankings have dropped, and the undefeated Nitany Lions came in at No. 4 — jumping previous No. 4 Clemson.

Did the committee get it right? Would a 11-1 Penn State team with a close loss to Ohio State still make it into the playoffs ahead of a 12-0 Clemson based on strength of schedule? Hosts Jon Sauber and Josh Moyer discuss what they learned from the first round of rankings, and what that means for Penn State, as well as look ahead at Saturday afternoon’s clash against the unbeaten Golden Gophers on this week’s episode of “Airing it Out.”
