What 4 teams will make it into the College Football Playoffs?

  • Auburn

    • Defeating the No. 1 team in the country twice in one month is enough to slip past undefeated Wisconsin. Both of Auburn’s losses came against ranked teams (Clemson and LSU), while Wisconsin has only played one ranked team all season. Arguing over No. 3 and No. 4 is a little pointless, though, because both teams need to notch top 10 wins this weekend to stay alive. ...»

    • SEC – Auburn vs. Georgia: The winner is in. The loser isn’t. Even though Auburn is No. 2 and riding high after beating two No. 1 teams, it’s hard to see the Tigers making it with three losses – especially with all of the other worthy candidates. ...»

    • Knocking off No. 1 Georgia and No. 1 Alabama in the span of three weeks is nothing short of phenomenal and makes the Tigers the biggest story of the year.

    • At 10-2, Auburn is the first major conference team to be ranked in the top 10 and ahead of another major conference team with fewer losses in the first four years of the CFP Rankings.

  • Alabama

    • Alabama’s 2017 College Football Playoff hopes took a major hit Saturday afternoon in Auburn. With a 26-14 Iron Bowl loss, the Crimson Tide’s distinction of being the only program to reach the College Football Playoff every season is in serious jeopardy.

      Sure, Alabama will end the season at 11-1 with only a single loss on the road to the No. 6 team in the country. And it usually crushes the 'eye test.' But it is going to need help to make the Playoff, which coach Nick Saban stumped for Saturday evening.

    • Alabama still has a chance at the playoff, though. The Crimson Tide will be the top one-loss team out of the playoff projection above. It will be interesting to see what the committee does with the Tide this week. However, being the top one-loss team does not mean that Alabama could not be jumped by a two-loss team. ...»

    • Nick Saban’s team is in strong position to snare a spot in the College Football Playoff field. ‘Bama just needs a tiny ounce of chaos this Saturday — most likely a win by Ohio State over Wisconsin — to potentially gain entry into the top 4. Whether ‘Bama gets in or not, the ensuing debate is destined to rage well into the offseason. ...»

    • No. 5 Alabama is the most fascinating case, because outside of Penn State, it’s the only top-11 school that isn’t playing this weekend.

  • Oklahoma

    • Baker Mayfield and the Sooners are playing an elite brand of offensive football. But what about the “D”? Oklahoma just gave up 31 points to a West Virginia team playing without its star quarterback and has surrendered 30-plus points in five different games. ...»
      Alex Martin Smith Writer SEC Country Bron: SEC Country 29/11/2017
    • The real chaos comes if either Oklahoma or Wisconsin lose. That would open up an opportunity for Alabama, Ohio State or Southern California to move up. It is also possible Clemson could still not fall out of the top four with a loss. Or TCU could move up. ...»

    • The Sooners are also the Big 12's only hope, and they must beat No. 11 TCU in Saturday's championship game at AT&T Stadium to make the four-team field. Otherwise, the Big 12 will miss the playoffs for the third time in four seasons. ...»
      Chuck Carlton Staff Writer Sports Day Bron: Sports Day 29/11/2017
    • For Oklahoma, the Sooners are looking for their second College Football Playoff berth in three years. And greater than that, OU must win this game to have a chance at its eighth National Championship in program history. ...»

  • Wisconsin

    • With the champions of the ACC, SEC and Big 12 (if it's Oklahoma) expected to secure College Football Playoff berths, if the Buckeyes beat Wisconsin next week, the fourth and final playoff spot will almost certainly come down to Ohio State and Alabama. ...»

    • The Badgers have just a single Top 25 win on their 2017 résumé (Northwestern). They’ve been bashed all season for a weak schedule, but they’re currently just one win from locking up a playoff spot. Wisconsin is a 5.5-point underdog to Ohio State in Indianapolis. ...»
      Alex Martin Smith Writer SEC Country Bron: SEC Country 29/11/2017
    • But what if Ohio State beats Wisconsin? Then it will come down to an argument between a two-loss conference champion that was annihilated by both Oklahoma and Iowa, a one-loss Wisconsin that hadn't played a Top 25 team until Nov. 11 and a one-loss Alabama that didn't play a much better schedule than the Badgers. Maybe the Crimson Tide will sneak in. ...»
      Kerry Miller Journalist Bleacher Report Bron: Bleacher Report 29/11/2017
    • It’s amazing...All year long we’ve talked about Wisconsin’s nonconference schedule. We’ve talked about (them) not having played anyone.
