College Football Playoff Bracketology December 1

The 14th week of the college football season is in the books. Each week the performance of the teams on the field can be looked at to see who is in the best position to make the College Football Playoff. Note that this bracketology will only take into consideration what happened on the field, so teams who played tough games will be ranked high. Conversely, hyped-up teams who haven’t played tough games yet, will likely be unranked or ranked lowly on the list until there is a solid sample size. Here is the College Football Playoff bracketology December 1.

CFP Four

1. Ohio State Buckeyes (12-0)

Last week, Ohio State reclaimed the number one spot from LSU. After putting up 56 points on Michigan, they’ll likely stay in the number one spot. With wins over Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Indiana, the Buckeyes have quality wins and have passed the eye test.

This week: vs. Wisconsin Badgers (10-2) (Game in Indianapolis, IN)

2. LSU Tigers (12-0)

Joe Burrow helped cap off a great regular season by torching Texas A&M’s defense for one more solid win. They fell last week in the rankings, but still have a lot of good wins. With a win over Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, LSU has a chance to jump back to number one in the final ra

This week: vs. Georgia Bulldogs (11-1) (Game in Atlanta, GA)

3. Clemson Tigers (12-0)

Clemson breezed through another game, beating South Carolina 38-3. They didn’t have many good wins this season, as the most wins a team had on their schedule this year is eight. Quite simply, if they win this weekend they are in. A loss leaves a lot of doubt.

This week: vs. Virginia Cavaliers (9-3) (Game in Charlotte, NC)

4. Georgia Bulldogs (11-1)

The Bulldogs didn’t have any troubles with Georgia Tech, which is as expected. Georgia could be without D’Andre Swift, who left the game with a shoulder injury. They have a chance to play their way into the CFP with a win over LSU in the SEC Championship.

This week: vs. LSU Tigers (12-0) (Game in Atlanta, GA)

First Four Out

5. Utah Utes (11-1)

This week, Utah beat Colorado to keep their CFP hopes alive. With Alabama losing, they are in contention for the last spot in the CFP with a Georgia loss in the SEC Championship Game. They’ll need to get past Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship and hope the committee favors them.

This week: vs. Oregon Ducks (10-2) (Game in Santa Clara, CA)

6. Oklahoma Sooners (11-1)

The Sooners stayed in contention for the CFP by beating Oklahoma State 34-16. If they beat Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game, they could be in the CFP, but they’d have to beat out Utah and Georgia.

This week: vs. Baylor Bears (11-1) (Game in Dallas, TX)

7. Baylor Bears (11-1)

Baylor has been ranked pretty low all year relative to their record. The Bears need to beat the Sooners and make a big impression to jump the teams ahead of them.

This week: vs. Oklahoma Sooners (11-1) (Game in Dallas, TX)

8. Alabama Crimson Tide (10-2)

Nick Saban’s team lost a tough one that will leave them out of the CFP for the first time since its inception. They will now look forward to a New Year’s Six Bowl.

This week: Bye

Next Four Out

9. Wisconsin Badgers (10-2)

The Badgers clinched their spot in the Big Ten Championship Game after beating Minnesota. They are out of the CFP race, but still look like they’ll be playing in a New Year’s Six Bowl Game.

This week: vs. Ohio State Buckeyes (12-0) (Game in Indianapolis, IN)

10. Florida Gators (10-2)

Florida beat Florida State, which has cemented their spot for a New Year’s Six Bowl Game.

This week: Bye

11. Auburn Tigers (9-3)

Auburn may be out of the CFP race, but they ended their rival’s chances of making the playoff. They will be in contention for a New Year’s Six Bowl Game now.

This week: Bye

12. Minnesota Golden Gophers (10-2)

Minnesota lost to their rivals in the Battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. They still had a great season and will now wait to see where they will be going bowling.

This week: Bye
