College Football Playoff Picture – Oct. 18, 2015

Well, it is still probably too early to try and predict the four teams in the playoffs of college football, but let’s do it anyways!  Here is how I see the top 10.

Top 10 for College Football

  1. Baylor
  2. Utah
  3. Ohio State
  4. LSU
  5. TCU
  6. Clemson
  7. Michigan State
  8. Florida State
  9. Iowa
  10. Alabama

Disclosure:  I think Baylor has been the most consistent team, and therefore deserving of the #1 status, but Utah is really close.  I just haven’t seen the same Ohio State team as last year, and they are not as dominant as the end of last year.  I only have 1 undefeated team in a Power 5 conference (Oklahoma State) over Alabama, but this is because it feels like OSU has flirted with being 3-3.  I believe that going undefeated is crazy tough, so teams who are there deserve more recognition.  However, many of these teams will lose sometime or another because they play each other.  So how do I see the playoff picture?  Here is my prediction for the CFB Playoff at the end of the year.

  1. Utah
  2. LSU
  3. TCU
  4. Michigan State
  5. Notre Dame
  6. Clemson

I think Ohio State will lose a big game to either Michigan State or Michigan (possibly both).  I think Baylor will lose to TCU.  LSU beats Alabama and wins SEC.  and Utah goes through Pac 12 unscathed.  I think we could possibly see 4 undefeated teams here.  Will it happen? Who knows.  But the playoff seems to have arrived in perfect timing, as it will be crazy helpful this year.
