College Football Playoff Picture – Nov. 29, 2015

I thought we would have a ton of upsets this weekend… that ended up not being the case.  But we did have a key loss this weekend with Notre Dame going down to Stanford.  With Baylor also losing, this creates some interesting scenarios.  First, my top 10:

  1. Clemson
  2. Iowa
  3. Alabama
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Michigan State
  6. Ohio State
  7. Stanford
  8. North Carolina
  9. Florida State
  10. Notre Dame

The conferences championships also have become quarter finals this year.  The Big 10 is one with winner betweeen Michigan State and Iowa.  The Big 12 doesn’t have a championship, but the OK State and Oklahoma was a de facto championship with Oklahoma probably punching their ticket.  The ACC and SEC have interesting championships with one team definitely getting in with a win (Clemson and Alabama), with the other two teams in more precarious situations.  North Carolina could possibly get in there, but they would have to contend with a possible Pac 12 champion if Stanford won.  So my predictions?

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. Oklahoma
  4. Michigan State
  5. Stanford
  6. Ohio State

Top 4 make in, with Stanford and Ohio State sitting just outside.

I will write up a better break down of the possible scenarios later in the week.  This is it for now.
