I know this would never happen, but I always root for chaos because I would like to see the playoff expanded to 8 teams. So which 4 teams would make the playoff if all of these things were to happen?

Florida (8-3) beats Alabama (12-0) in the SEC championship.
Virginia Tech (9-3) beats Clemson (11-1) in the ACC championship.
Colorado (10-2) beats Washington (11-1) in the Pac Twelve championship.
Penn State (10-2) beats Wisconsin (10-2) in the Big Ten championship.
Oklahoma State (9-2) beats Oklahoma (9-2) in the Big Twelve championship.
Western Michigan (12-0) beats Ohio (8-4) in the MAC championship.

Ohio State is 11-1 but didn't win their division.
Michigan is 10-2 but didn't win their division.

Bama is in pretty much no matter what at this point.

Ohio State may actually move to the #1 seed in your scenario.

Oklahoma St may get in due to the fact that they'd only have one "real" loss.

Under this scenario, I'd probably give the 4th slot to Western Michigan.


That would give you the three teams with one loss and the lone unbeaten.

Alabama could lose 90-0 and they are more than likely still in the playoffs. In this scenario above I'd put Ohio State #1, Alabama #2, Penn State #3 & Colorado #4

Ohio State is 11-1 but didn't win their division.
Michigan is 10-2 but didn't win their division.
In that scenario.


#1 Michigan
#2 Penn State
#3 Colorado
#4 Oklahoma State

people keep saying Alabama is a lock because they are #1, and that no #1 has dropped that far in this new system, but in the final week, its a tally of the entire year, and Alabama cant lay claim to a conference title or being better than 2 other champions, so they would be out.

Think about Ohio State last year as your example, After losing in 3rd week in November, they were placed behind all conference champs when it was all said and done even though their only lose was to an 12-1 Michigan State team.

They would be able to lay claim to a tougher schedule and blowing people out and not allowing a single touchdown in the month of November. So yeah, Bama would be a lock.

If there were other more deserving teams.. Perhaps. Let's say that Ohio State was unbeaten, Clemson was unbeaten and Washington was unbeaten.. And the Florida beats Alabama in the SEC championship game.

There's a scenario where Alabama could be left out. With their body of work, there's just no chance this year that's going to happen. Someone said they probably could have lost to Auburn and then lost the SEC championship and still been in the top 4. And they're probably right.
