CFP playoff announces Michigan decision

The Michigan Wolverines are being investigated for allegedly stealing signs in college football.

Despite the ongoing investigation, the College Football Playoff selection committee has ranked Michigan at No. 3 in their latest rankings.

Committee chairman Boo Corrigan has clarified that they will keep ranking Michigan as long as they are eligible for the postseason.

The committee's primary mission is to assess teams that can compete in the postseason.

They will continue to follow the established procedures, and the issue is not with the committee itself.

The focus is on evaluating Michigan's on-field performance, regardless of the investigation.

Michigan will have an opportunity to improve their ranking in an upcoming game against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The investigation into sign stealing is a separate matter from the team's performance and postseason eligibility.

The College Football Playoff committee is determined to stick to its evaluation process.

Michigan's ranking will be based on their on-field achievements, and they will be assessed as long as they are eligible for postseason play.
