As everyone jumps onto he Auburn bandwagon let me remind you that no 2-loss team has ever made the 4-team playoff.  With that said let’s take a look at who gets in and what the pecking order will be.

  1. Clemson vs. Miami – winner of the ACC gets a spot and the loser is out.
  2. Wisconsin – win the BIG10 and they are in, lose and they are out.
  3. Georgia – win the SEC and they are in, lose and they are out.
  4. Alabama – Nick Saban gets to take a page out of Bobby Knight’s book and just sit back and enjoy this weekend.  As of today I give them the nod over Oklahoma but it is close.
  5. Oklahoma – a convincing win over TCU again might just put them over Bama.
  6. Auburn, Ohio St. and UCF – If Auburn and Ohio St. win Saturday then these three teams will come into play.  UCF will have to beat a very hot Memphis team to keep their hopes afloat.  UCF will have only 1 less Top 50 win and 2 fewer losses than the other two.  The committee has always poo-pooed 2 loss teams and the buzz created by adding UCF (who will travel well) will be very tempting.
  7. Penn St., Washington, TCU and USC – These teams have absolutely no shot at all.

Once again, no need to watch the ESPN dog and pony show tonight.
