Sorry Bama... sorry Minny.

Clemson too high IMO. Swap them and OU. OU looks to have found a defense which is a scary thing. But, I still don’t fully trust Hurts when he goes up against a good defense.    Have to give Lin

After Wk 9:   1. LSU 8-0 2. Ohio State 8-0 3. Penn State 8-0 4. Clemson 8-0 5. Baylor 7-0 6. Alabama 8-0 7. Florida 7-1 8. Oregon 7-1 9. Utah 7-1

Utah is pretty good but no one watches them play as the Pac-12 Network is a joke.

They have been dominant since their loss @ USC. I also think they were without their starting QB and RB that game. One was out and the other got hurt during the game, if i remember correctly.

 

They have to stay ahead of Oklahoma (assuming the contenders win out. It will also be interesting to see where Baylor and Oregon land heading in to conference championship weekend.

1. Ohio St

2. LSU

3. Clemson

4. Georgia

5. Oklahoma

6. Utah 

7. Baylor

 

- Committee was a week premature in jumping Ohio St over LSU. A blow out road victory over Michigan now makes Ohio St and LSUs schedules comparable. And the Buckeyes have been much more dominant. Both probably get in with a loss.

- All of Clemson's signature wins LOST. They are hanging on by a thread. If they get upset by Virginia in the ACC championship game there is absolutely no way they should get in. Defending champ or not.

- Georgia controls its own fate. Win the SEC and they are in. Simple as that.

- Oklahoma has the inside track as they are the only one of the remaining three teams that has an elite win. Baylor can avenge their only loss of the season. I dont really see how Utah gets in in any scenario. Oregon kind of screwed the pouch for the Pac-12 when they lost to Arizona last week.

Definitely not inspiring football by Clemson. They get to choose 4 of their games each year and those opponents went 26-22 (19-13).

 

Of the ACC opponents, they went 26-38.

 

Clemson's schedule went 71-73 (45-51) this year; only 5 opponents had a winning record (ACC x2, CUSA, SEC, and Southern).

I dont fault them on their non-conf they scheduled two P5 teams. Both of which just happened to average or below. And ACC was unusually bad (even for ACC standards). But thats Clemson's problem and really only if they lose. Take care of business and they are in.

I like Utah over Baylor.  Baylor's non conf schedule was Stephen F Austin, UTSA, and Rice.  Combine that with close games against average teams has me putting Utah out front.

In this scenario:

 

- Utah wins over BYU, Cal, Washington, Arizona St, and Oregon

- Baylor wins over Kansas State, Iowa State, Oklahoma St, Texas and Oklahoma

 

Pretty similar resumes. I would give a slight edge to Baylor having the more impressive wins and the fact that they technically beat every team on their schedule. However, Utah has definitely been more dominate.

Looking at current scores.... I think the field is set.

Yep. Oh boy could Wisconsin really be regretting that Illinois loss by the end of the night! But theres a good chance Ohio State will be matched up with Clemson win or lose tonight. LSU probably takes over #1 and if Ohio State loses they probably dont drop below Oklahoma.

 

Looks like we will see:

(1) LSU v. (4) Oklahoma

(2/3) Ohio St v. (2/3) Clemson

 

ESPN will try and sell us on the possibility of Wisconsin leaping Oklahoma (if they pull of the upset) to boost ratings for their reveal show. But no way in hell that happens.
