The unbeaten College Football Playoff contenders
Going unbeaten with a Power Five championship will all but guarantee an invite into the College Football Playoff. The Big Ten and Pac-12 will be added when they start playing.
Will it happen? Yup. All of a sudden, the rest of the schedule looks more than manageable after rolling by Georgia. The Tide can lose once before the SEC Championship and still be more than fine.
Will it happen? Has this team given you any indication that it’s going to slip anywhere in any way? Maybe there could be a problem at Notre Dame, and there will be issues in the regular season finale at Virginia Tech, but the ACC Championship appearance is a lock, and go from there.
Notre Dame (4-0)
Will it happen? Not a chance if the team plays like it did against Louisville. Going to Pitt will be a problem, and Clemson and at North Carolina are scary. However, if the team can play up to its capabilities, it can lose once, get to the ACC Championship, and have a shot to get in.
Oklahoma State (3-0)
Will it happen? No chance. It’ll lose either at Oklahoma, to Texas, or to Iowa State, or at Kansas State … there are too many landmines and will probably lose twice.
