Top 10 Teams Most Likely to Be in the 2019-2020 College Football Playoff
The Top Ten
They just lost to Auburn. 2 losses, no conference championship. Alabama is basically eliminated from the playoffs.
The stoped the evil empire sore dearth tuna and empower saben
An obvious favorite to make the tournament, barring any embarrassing losses in SEC play. - jayynormal00
Alabama could go 0-12 and still get into the playoffs. - railfan99
No they wouldn't. At that point they'd put in an undefeated UCF or a 5-loss Ohio State in. The media is biased but not that biased.
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 is probably becoming as fake as WWE.
Last three opponents by more than 3 touchdowns. Those who underestimate them will be sorry
Most likely because they have an absolutely garbage schedule. The other top contenders have at least 1 pretty tough game left. - steelersrock7
Clemson has the talent to make the playoff, but can’t afford to get complacent in the mild ACC - jayynormal00
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. - jayynormal00
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 for a 2-loss SEC nonchampion.
They are the team to beat even though I'm a Nebraska GO HUSKERS
I’m a Michigan fan
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. - jayynormal00
I like the Tigers to find a way in - Randomator
Iowa State should not have gone for 2 and let Oklahoma beat them. The Big 12 (except Kansas State) is a bunch of retards 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.
Congratulations Oklahoma you just lost to Kansas State. Just like your wagon your college football playoff hopes have rolled over and crashed - Randomator
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 1 loss, the Sooners aren't eliminated yet, but will be if they don't win the Big 12.
Oklahoma would've jumped Ohio State at some point had they remained undefeated. The media does not like the Big Ten anymore.
A Jalen Hurts led team, with an above average Big 12 defense with their hardest games behind them, they can’t afford a major upset loss. - jayynormal00
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 - jayynormal00
They now have 2 losses. They are eliminated.
Yeah, but there still really good
They lost to Illinois there goes their CFP hopes - Randomator
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. - jayynormal00
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 - jayynormal00
Let's go penn state!
They just lost to Minnesota.
Best team in the league
If Notre Dame wins out, they have a slim chance to make the playoff - jayynormal00
Same thing of the loins
A long shot pac 12 team would be unlikely; it would take a lot of losses for this to happen - jayynormal00
Um yeah no if they needed a field goal to beat Kansas then no they don’t have a shot - Randomator
Go horns go
Texas Longhorns will wint it alll
Still undefeated because they haven't played anybody. Their best win was against Iowa State, 23-21.
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. - jayynormal00
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 - jayynormal00
They are undefeated - RawIsgore
The best and the coolest team in college history.
Nope. Team that lost to UCLA won’t make it - jayynormal00
They should be up in the top 5 because there a good team and had- Tom Brady, Rod Woodson, Devin Bush, and lots of other good player myself I'm a Wolverines fan and even though back in the 90's they lost to App St, they still fight hard and deserve to be top 5,
With their two losses up to this point, It’s nearly impossible they can bounce back - jayynormal00
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 years 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 because Pruitt will screw it.
