College Football Playoff Picture – Oct. 25, 2015

It wasn’t a huge upset weekend, but there were some games that changed the outlook of the season.  How does Saturday’s action affect my top 10?

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

Baylor’s place at No. 1 is still good for this week, but Seth Russel’s health (first and foremost, hoping for a speedy recovery for him) can affect this position.  Ohio State looked solid now that J.T. Barrett is QB.  Easily the best game of the year for the Buckeyes.  I still have LSU ahead of many teams.  Brandon Harris is turning out to be a decent QB, but he will face another elite defense (Alabama) in two weeks time.  Clemson goes to 4 with the impressive victory over Miami (no effort = pathetic).  Michigan State and Alabama needed the 4th quarter to win.  Oklahoma had a large victory over a poor team, but did their job with great efficiency.  And Notre Dame’s loss to Clemson is looking better and better with every week.  My predictions for the playoff teams are:

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

I think LSU wins the SEC.  TCU beats Baylor and wins Big 12.  Michigan State feels like a team of destiny and will win the Big 10. And I have, in a weird twist of fate, Notre Dame over Clemson.  I just feel like it has been a bit easy for Clemson, and there will be a trap game later this year that Clemson will fall on (maybe N.C. State?)  Stanford feels like the team that will win the PAC-12 now with Utah’s loss.

Of course… these predictions just meant that one of those teams will probably loss, and change my predictions again.  Let’s see what this next weekend brings us!
