1. Georgia Bulldogs (7-0)
Georgia is in the College Football Playoff if … it doesn’t lose twice. Go unbeaten the rest of the way, be the No. 1 seed without any issues. It’s also possible to lose once and be just fine, even if it’s in the SEC Championship.
It’s all going to go wrong against … it’s not. However, if the Bulldogs lose to Florida in two weeks, or at Tennessee, or even on the wrong day at Georgia Tech, then there’s no margin for error. Losing once isn’t a problem. Losing once and then losing in the SEC Championship, however, would be a total disaster.
Will Georgia get into the College Football Playoff? If QB JT Daniels doesn’t come back healthy there might be one blip along the way, and it could certainly lose to an Alabama in the SEC Championship game, but the team is playing too well.
There’s a long, long way to go, but we might be looking at 2019 LSU or 2020 Alabama here.
