College Football Playoff Projections 2022-2023

Some team will rise up from out of nowhere and make a big push – like Michigan last year. USC might be close, and Notre Dame could be in the mix if it beats the Trojans.

However, the early call is that Ohio State and Clemson each roll through the Big Ten and ACC, respectively, to get the 2 and 3 seeds. Alabama will lose along the way, but it’ll earn the No. 1 spot after beating Georgia in the SEC Championship.

Two scenarios for a Bama vs. Georgia rematch. Georgia loses once during the regular season, and it gets in because there are only three teams that finish with one loss or go unbeaten – and assuming it doesn’t get blown out against Alabama in the first meeting. The second possibility is a loss to Florida. The Gators go to the SEC Championship, Georgia finishes 11-1, and it gets the 4 seed.
