Top Playoff Contenders
When selecting your playoff contenders, keep in mind that the outcome of a single game can quickly change the rankings and standings of any given team. The objective is to look at the overall scope of a team, not just their record. This means that you have to consider the top eight seeded teams to have room to analyze your picks. These teams include:
- Ohio State
The Cream Of The Crop
Alabama and Ohio State both have incredible programs and with the Crimson Tide rolling along with an undefeated season thus far, they are a clear favorite. 5 other teams have a 9-1 record, while Wisconsin has an 8-2 record. These teams are serious playoff threats. So who do we think the top 4 picks are for college playoffs? Ask and ye shall receive.
- Alabama – Strong on both sides of the ball and plays with an intensity that other teams can only hope to imitate. They’ve tasted success numerous times and rather than being satisfied, they want more. Any team put in front of the Tide roll likely be crushed like grass under a rampaging elephant.
- Clemson – Clemson’s offense is designed to eat defensives alive. Even after suffering a recent loss, they still hold a win over Louisville and thus the tiebreaker if it comes down to it, which it is looking like it will.
- Michigan – If Michigan can hold out and match Ohio State the rest of the year, then they will jump ahead of Ohio State. Ohio State and tiebreakers never go together, so look for Michigan to safely slide into the playoffs while Oho State still has a little bit of dancing to do.
- Ohio State – The football program at Ohio State is nothing short of legendary. This program always manages to put together a team that always have playoff potential. If history has taught us anything, it is that a loss for Ohio State has sparked multiple game winning streaks that propel them into the playoffs and beyond.
Obviously, you cannot count out Louisville or Wisconsin, who will be playing in a bowl game this year, regardless. The same is true for Washington and Oklahoma.
