Lots of match ups between the top 15 teams. 

Auburn plays both UGA and Bama.

Miami plays VT and ND.

OU and OSU play
its like that very first playoff poll with three sec teams in it. They all played each other so you knew the poll wasn't going to stay that way.

How two of the top three teams losing shakes up the playoff race.


Quote
No. 1 Georgia and No.3 Notre Dame lost on Saturday, which will obviously cause a shakeup in the College Football Playoff Rankings this coming week. That is a problem for another day. Today's problem is the CFP bowl projections and the New Year's Six games.

As it turns out, that is not much of a problem at all.  The only teams that lost unexpectedly this week among the 12 projected to be in the New Year's Six were Washington and Virginia Tech.  They have been replaced by Penn State and Auburn. The top four College Football Playoff semifinalists remain the same from my projections a week ago.

One thing this week's results did accomplish was clearing out the race for the four spots in the College Football Playoff.  For the three remaining undefeated major-conference teams -- Alabama, Miami and Wisconsin -- it is as simple as win and get in.  That is not going to be easy.

Alabama not quite done yet.

 Scott McCrary‏ @ScottyMc71
Replying to @jppalmCBS

If Bama plays in the playoff 98% of the teams in college football should strike. The big 12 was forced to add a conference playoff game, even though they play everyone in the season. If you don’t win your conference you shouldn’t be in the CFP

Jerry Palm Retweeted Scott McCrary

Nobody forced the Big 12 to add a championship game.  This is not a tournament of conference champs.  It's the 4 best teams


Quote
Strength of schedule still figures to hold down Wisconsin, but as I have said before, I do not believe an undefeated, major-conference champion will ever get left out of the playoff.  Note that if Auburn beats Georgia, you can also expect the Tigers to be in the No. 3 slot [replacing Georgia].

Alabama still has a chance at the playoff, though.  The Crimson Tide will be the top one-loss team out of the playoff projection above.  It will be interesting to see what the committee does with the Tide this week.  However, being the top one-loss team does not mean that Alabama could not be jumped by a two-loss team.

Kirby Hocutt of the College Football Playoff committee explains why Alabama got in over Ohio State http://sec.news/2iG8dgq   #RollTide


Quote
“We went with a one-loss Alabama team, losing in the final game to the No. 7 team in Auburn,” Hocutt said. “More damaging was the 31-point loss to Iowa. The selection committee just favored the full body of work from Alabama.”

Hocutt added that Alabama was clearly the No. 4 team in the country. Alabama lost 26-14 to Auburn, while Ohio State lost twice, 31-16 to No. 2 Oklahoma and 55-24 to Iowa, who went 7-5.

This is a statement by the committee in that it does matter how and who you lose to. This is the second year in a row that the Big Ten Champion has been left out of the playoff.

Alabama will take on Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1.

The two worst losses any playoff team suffered during the regular season to date:

2014: Ohio State lost 35-21 to Virginia Tech in Week 2 (won CFP title as No. 4 seed)

2016: Washington lost 26-13 to USC in Week 11 (lost by 17 in CFP semifinals)

Kirk Herbstreit still passionately defends choice to walk off set after Alabama made College Football Playoff


Quote
Kirk Herbstreit still is defending his choice to walk off the set after the College Football Playoff selection committee chose Alabama to make the Sugar Bowl.

We’ve known the Crimson Tide’s place among the country’s top four teams for weeks, but fans remain critical of Herbstreit walking off camera in the moments after he learned Alabama made the College Football Playoff instead of Big Ten champion Ohio State. Some have viewed the move as Herbstreit, a former Buckeyes quarterback, displaying his displeasure with the committee’s decision to include the Crimson Tide in the top four.

Earlier this morning, Coach Saban was asked again about expanding the playoffs, and he still thinks it's a bad idea. https://trib.al/j1vbDt6


Quote
-- On the likelihood of another high scoring game between Alabama and Clemson: Both teams can score points but the two defenses are first and second in scoring defense. They've had high scoring games the last few years but he said he's not good at predicting how much offense to expect.

-- There are usually six or seven plays that determine the outcome and you never really know when they are coming.

-- Asked again about expanding playoffs, Saban still thinks it's a bad idea.

-- Saban said his teams get criticized for being too "businesslike" because they take on his personality. "Quite frankly, I'm not always that way."

Did UCF deserve a spot in the College Football Playoff?


Quote
University of Central Florida finished its season on a high note, defeating the Auburn Tigers in the Peach Bowl to finish the year undefeated. However, UCF will not be competing for a national championship -- despite being the only team to finish with a perfect record. Many believe the Knights should have been in the College Football Playoff on the strength of their record. Still, pundits argue UCF played a weaker schedule and is too untested to be included in the CFP.

8-team playoff ‘not in the cards,’ according to CFP director Bill Hancock


Quote
“It would take a unanimous vote from all the conferences for that kind of movement to start,” Hancock said, per The Sporting News. “Right now, that’s not in the cards.”

The four-team playoff will stay in place until 2025, which is when the original 12-year agreement expires.

Hancock also discussed the CFP committee’s decision to include Alabama in this year’s playoff, instead of Ohio State, which had a puzzling loss to Iowa during the regular season.

“Alabama lost its margin for error when it lost. They needed help, as we all would say, and they got that help,” Hancock said. “The committee felt strongly that they were the better team.”

Hancock also confirmed that Monday’s National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia will have Big 10 officials.
