College Football Playoff projections after Week 13 games

  • Georgia and Auburn will meet again in the SEC Championship game with College Football Playoff berth on the line

If the University of Miami beats Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Saturday in Charlotte, the Hurricanes likely would be in the four-team College Football Playoff, for reasons we explain here.

Saturday's conference championship games, at least three of which will match teams ranked in the CFP top 10, will be pivotal.

They're No. 2 in the most recent AP Poll, but many analysts think they're the best team in the country. By losing to Auburn, Alabama is not playing in the SEC Championship, so its season is over.

ESPN's College Football Playoff insider Heather Dinich broke down such a possibility Monday on "SportsCenter", and while it would require a couple moving parts, she says the committee likely would favor the Buckeyes over the Tide as the final playoff team if the cards fall perfectly.

Last week's group saw Alabama on top with the ACC well represented at the No. 2 and 3 spots with Miami and Clemson and Oklahoma rounding out the group at that point.

Since taking a beating in Iowa City, Iowa, on November 4, the Ohio State Buckeyes have clawed back into the playoff discussion with convincing wins over Michigan State, Illinois and Michigan. And if Alabama doesn't make the field, it would mark the first time the event has been held without the Crimson Tide.

Confidence in Marvell Technology Group Ltd (NASDAQ:MRVL) Shares by Barclays Rise
The business had revenue of $604.75 million for the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $600.76 million. Craig Hallum maintained Marvell Technology Group Ltd . (NASDAQ: MRVL ) on Tuesday, November 21 with "Buy" rating.

Although the Buckeyes enter the Big Ten Championship as a more tested contender than Wisconsin with victories over two Top 15 teams, they aren't a lock to take home hardware from Indianapolis given how well the Badgers have played.

An Ohio State win over Wisconsin could leave the committee with a choice between one-loss Alabama and two-loss Ohio State, ranked No. 9 last week. Alabama, Ohio State and Georgia also have a chance to break into the Top 4.

Will Ohio State qualify for the CFP?

Scooby Axson compared Oklahoma to Clemson, Auburn and Wisconsin, the other three teams in SI's top four.

Oklahoma (11-1) - A better overall resume when it comes to beating higher ranked teams.
