Top 10 Teams Most Likely to Be in the 2019-2020 College Football Playoff
Their dominant defense and offense with Justin Fields and JK Dobbins could lead them to the playoff. However, they have to get through Michigan, Penn State, and the Big Ten West Champion to get there.
Ohio State is a good team and will finish undefeated or with one loss, but I wouldn't be surprised if they were left out in favor of a 2-loss SEC non-champion.
LSU is arguably the best team in the country, and Alabama is not making the playoffs for the very first time.
LSU has been extremely dominant, but they have an extremely tough conference schedule to get through.
I like the Tigers to find a way in.
Clemson should've lost to North Carolina, but they didn't because their HC, Mack Brown, knew that the game would be fixed from the start and decided to make a poor last decision by going for 2 (which they failed) so Clemson could win and play Alabama in the playoffs. This was like the TCU-Oklahoma game back in 2015 when TCU should've won, but let Oklahoma win instead since the game was fixed from the very beginning. College Football and the NFL are probably becoming as fake as WWE.
Most likely because they have an absolutely garbage schedule. The other top contenders have at least one pretty tough game left.
Last three opponents by more than three touchdowns. Those who underestimate them will be sorry.
Iowa State should not have gone for 2 and let Oklahoma beat them. The Big 12 (except Kansas State) is a bunch of individuals who never learn, and Oklahoma does not deserve a spot in the playoffs. Let us hope that Baylor can stand up to them and win the Big 12 this year.
I actually thought the refs would let Oklahoma win (like they always do). No way can a talented team like Kansas State blow a 25-pt lead. With one loss, the Sooners aren't eliminated yet, but they will be if they don't win the Big 12.
Congratulations, Oklahoma, you just lost to Kansas State. Just like your wagon, your college football playoff hopes have rolled over and crashed.
They just lost to Auburn. Two losses, no conference championship. Alabama is basically eliminated from the playoffs.
An obvious favorite to make the tournament, barring any embarrassing losses in SEC play.
Roll Tide... As a Penn State fan, I said, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Georgia, with their recent loss to USC, was knocked pretty far outside contention, but there is a long shot that they could get in. Lots of things would have to go wrong for Alabama and LSU, though.
Seem to find a way to win.
A talented two-way team, they have a serious chance to beat their competition. However, I do not think that they will be able to finish well if they lose before week 13.
They just lost to Minnesota.
Best team in the league.
Still undefeated because they haven't played anybody. Their best win was against Iowa State, 23-21.
A long shot Pac-12 team would be unlikely. It would take a lot of losses for this to happen.
With a pretty easy remaining schedule, the only thing stopping them is the winner of the Big Ten East.
Update: Ouch. No. They lost to Illinois. Ouch.
They now have 2 losses. They are eliminated.
Yeah, but they're still really good.
If Notre Dame wins out, they have a slim chance to make the playoff.
When I look at this team, I see a very talented team with a lot of potential that has a tendency to collapse in big-time situations. Don't see them in the CFP.
They just beat Penn State. Maybe they'll go undefeated in the regular season then lose to Ohio State.
Yes, Minnesota is a good team, but 3 of their next 4 games are very losable games. I don't see it happening.
They are undefeated.
Texas Longhorns will win it all.
Um, yeah no, if they needed a field goal to beat Kansas, then no, they don't have a shot.
The best and the coolest team in college history.
Nope. A team that lost to UCLA won't make it.
With their two losses up to this point, it's nearly impossible they can bounce back.
The CFP has made it clear that G5 teams aren't eligible for the playoffs. UCF didn't even rank in the playoff's top 10 in 2017 despite being the only undefeated team in the nation that year.
Update: They lost to BYU, so they won't even make the New Year's Six unless both SMU and App State lose a game.
Maybe Schiano will return and get them to the playoffs another year. I'd like to see that, not only because I respect Rutgers football, but because it'll make Tennessee fans cry since Pruitt will screw it up.
