And Oklahoma wins because TCU tried to be Arkansas and go for two to win. Didn't happen.

Also, Oklahoma State's unbeaten season has ended.

Even with a win over Clemson, should UNC jump them in the polls? Clemson beat FSU and ND. They will also have a chance to beat SC....the team that beat NC! I would say Clemson stays ranked ahead of UNC unless the Tarheels blow them out by 25+ in an uncompetive game.
If Clemson beats UNC, they're clearly the number 1 in the playoff. If UNC wins, IDK. Just saw OKlahoma State lost. This season is nuts.

I can see the committee making Bama first. Their loss at home basically has been ignored.

How did Bama lose at home to Ole Miss and barely beat Tenn at home and not scoring much in that one, if Bama is a dominant team?

Bama hasn't faced at team with a great offense this year. Ole Miss was the best offense they've seen and they lost the game.

There are 80 bowl spots. Currently 72 teams are bowl eligible and 13 sit at 5-6. In those 13 games, if the favorites win, that would make 76 teams bowl eligible, leaving 4 spots for teams with losing records.

Obviously we have at least two too many bowls.

The bowls are a joke. There should only be 20 of them to make getting into a bowl game an accomplishment and you would also see good matchups across the board.



Looks like the Pac 12 is going to miss out this year on the playoffs. If Notre Dame manages to win out, then you'll also see the Big 12 also miss out.

Patterson gave up the game/essentially the season so they could have a better chance at beating Baylor next week..

Thats just pathetic, but then again Patterson has long been obsessed with Baylor. I bet he didn't have anything bad to say about Summer's dirty hit on Mayfield. But oh if you hit one of his players too hard you won't hear the end of it..

They've beaten 5 ranked teams, 3 of who were in the top 10, and they beat them all pretty badly. Call it what you want but that will matter when it comes to a playoff spot.

Bama beat Georgia, Texas A+M and LSU who time has proven were all overrated and have disappeared from the discussion long ago. Now they may turn out to be the best team when its all said and done but IMO up to this point there high ranking has come from past seasons performance and the the incestuous relationship involving the SEC, their network, ESPN and the CFP committee and the drive for ratings and dollars.
