College Football Playoff projections after Week 13 games

College Football Playoff projections after Week 13 games

It will be an interesting finish to the year, and the field of four teams is sure to be hotly debated when the time comes.

Though I did my rankings how I would put the top six teams, I know full well Alabama will either still be in the College Football Playoff's top four or one of the first two teams out. Alabama can make the claim it's the best 1-loss team in the country, but there won't be a conference championship.

If UM loses on Saturday, then Clemson would be in the playoff, and UM nearly assuredly would be the next highest-ranked ACC team (ahead of Virginia Tech and North Carolina State) and thus OB-bound. By losing to Auburn, Alabama is not playing in the SEC Championship, so its season is over.

For the entire month of November, the eyes of the FSU football fans and the college football world have been focused on a few minutes each Tuesday night when the College Football Playoff committee releases their list of the top 25 teams in the sport - and, more importantly, who would be the top four teams that would make the playoff if it started that week. The Crimson Tide is Ohio State's primary competition for a playoff spot if Ohio State wins.

Clemson and Oklahoma, the No. 3 and No. 4 teams last week, appear poised to claim the top two spots in one order or the other after commanding wins over SC and West Virginia, respectively. Ohio State, for instance, isn't the same two-loss team now that it will be if it adds a Big Ten title and win over undefeated Wisconsin to its resume.

The Tigers enter the SEC Championship on a five-game winning streak that includes scalps of two previously-ranked No. 1 teams in the nation.

Bluehole to release 'PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' in China
Chinese tech giant Tencent promised to add "socialist core values" to the game in order to bypass the country's strict censors. Specifically, PUBG will have to incorporate tweaks that would make it more suitable for the "socialist core values" of China.


Now that's a Nick Saban press conference we'd like to see.

On one hand, there would be 11-2 Ohio State, fresh off a Big Ten championship. No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Miami also last week, but both should stay ahead of the Buckeyes.

Ohio State or Alabama?

Will Ohio State qualify for the CFP?

Ohio State's resume would have better wins, but a worse loss.
