Ok i think we can all agree these 3 teams will make it

alabama,clemson,ohio state im sure will be in the play offs

but who is number 4?

washington is playing great in the pac 12 and baylor is still high powered offense!

This is what i got the college football play off rankings

1.)Alabama
2.)clemson(will most likely be undeafted in their conference)
3.)ohio state
4.)Baylor

I'm not sure about Ohio State. They are playing Michigan in Columbus, so that goes in their favor, but against the same competition (Wisconsin and Rutgers), I thought Michigan looked more impressive. In the end, it'll probably come down to whichever team is healthier when they play.

I'd put Washington over Baylor, and it will come down to whether either team finishes undefeated. Washington has the Pac 12 championship game so that will probably go in its favor adding another quality win.

Bama is the best team until proven otherwise.

Texa, Good post.. I'm with ya.. I also think Michigan has looked a little stronger than Ohio State.. but at home in that regular season game against Michigan is big for the Buckeyes. Big Ten is treacherous this year. I actually think Ohio State, Michigan, and Wisconsin are all championship caliber teams. Wisconsin has already taken too many losses, but they hung with both OSU & Michigan.

Clemson looked suspect against NC St, but will probably still slide into the Final Four..
So I'll go, Alabama, Michigan, Clemson, Washington.. I feel 2 Big Ten teams theoretically should be there, but I think the selection committee wouldn't pick a loser of the Big Ten championship game.. Is that how the process will work, have they stated a position, or rule on that (?) Because I think both OSU & Michigan (even with a future head-to-head loss) are better than Clemson..

Let's compare...I watched all four games.


Ohio State Rutgers COULD HAVE BEEN 78-0 very easily. However, Not a game I'd use to compare the two.


Ohio St. played Wisconsin at Camp Randall at Night with Wisconsin having a Bye week to prepare. Now having said that, Michigan's win at home against Wisconsin was more convincing. I think Wiscy QB played much better against OSU he had three really nice throws, while he missed open WRs at Ann Arbor. Hats off to him for playing a better game. Not a perfect comparison either.


Michigan in mind has a lot to overcome. Last years 42-13 loss is one of them- in that game Ohio St. went off guard or JT went off tackle the ENTIRE second half. Different year, some of the same Michigan defenders (they return almost everybody) will hopefully be motivated by that beating but this year its in Columbus.


You have to respect the fact that OSU is 2-0 on the road against the #2 Okie and #3 Wiscy teams in the country (win percentage at home since 2002). By the way #1 in that time at home is Ohio St. They will play at Penn St. this week at night again and have a showdown at home against Nebraska.


Michigan will have ONE legit road test prior to THE GAME at Iowa. Has Michigan even left the Michigan state line yet?


I'm interested to see how Michigan's new DC handles OSU spread attack. That is the game IMO.

Now, JT Barrett is not throwing the ball well, the play calling has been suspect the past couple weeks, but if I had to roll into game where both teams are even I'll take Barrett at HOME over Wilton Speight on the road.

All valid points, and until Michigan beats OSU, I expect most of the 'experts' will agree with you. There is still a lot of football to be played, so my pick may change as they have more common opponents to compare against each other, and as injuries take a toll throughout the season. For now I thought Michigan was more impressive, although I agree home versus away for Wisconsin isn't a perfect comparison. I think OSU has the better offense and Michigan the better defense. It should be a good game this year.

My best guess at this point is Washington, Clemson and Baylor because they have the easiest schedules of the remaining contenders and should go undefeated. Clemson and Washington should win their conference championship games and Baylor plays West Virginia the last game of the season so if they are both undefeated the winner gets in. The final spot will go to whomever wins the Big 10 championship which at this point is a 3 way race between Michigan, Nebraska and Ohio St. I like Harbaugh and the Wolverines to break through this year and make the playoff. It will be interesting to see what the committee does if there are 5 or more undefeated teams at the end of the regular season and how they treat Boise St. and Western Michigan if they go undefeated.

Baylor is going to need to run the table to have a shot. They still have to play at Oklahoma and at West Virginia. I put their chances on the lower side to go 12-0 and make the playoffs. I will give them props for play 6 true road games this year.

As of right now:

1. Alabama
2. Michigan
3. Washington
4. Clemson

I think we can agree unanimously Alabama will not only be there, but will win the entire thing. They are just too awesome. It is almost boring to watch unless, of course you are an Alabama alum.

I would love to see Baylor there as well as Washington. I think Clemson will make it.

So then your best guess leaves out Alabama?

Is that correct?

You have:

Washington
Clemson
Baylor

and then:

"whoever wins the Big 10"
