LSU is going to be in the College Football Playoff, and so will Georgia if it pulls off an upset in the SEC Championship.

If Georgia loses, it’ll end up taking the SEC’s spot in the Sugar Bowl. If it wins, then the next team up will go to the Sugar, which means it’ll be Alabama or Florida.

And then keep on going.

The Rose Bowl has to take teams from the Big Ten and Pac-12, the Sugar has to take a Big 12 team, the Orange Bowl has to take an ACC team, and this year, the top Group of Five champion will go to the Cotton Bowl.

The Orange will take the highest-ranked Big Ten or SEC team available to face the team from the ACC – a mortal lock to be Virginia. So where will the committee rank Florida and Alabama compared to Penn State?

After all of that shakes out, the highest-ranked team left will play in the Cotton Bowl.

So going back to Penn State, if the committee makes it LSU, Georgia, Florida and Alabama – Auburn should actually be ranked higher than Alabama, since its three losses were to LSU, Georgia and Florida, and it beat Bama, but that’s not going to happen – in that order, and they’re all ahead of Penn State, then that means four of the New Year’s Six games will have an SEC team playing in it.
