CFP Ranking Predictions: How the Committee Should View the OSU, Bama, Tennessee Debate

This time next week, the final four teams for the college football playoffs will be announced and the stage set. With each passing week, it looks increasingly likely that Georgia will ban the No. 1 seed barring SEC championship disaster.

If the Bulldogs stay clean through championship weekend, there are a few teams they could potentially face in the opening round. Ohio State lost to Michigan that weekend and then LSU, then No. 5, lost to Texas A&M. Those two losses mean USC is likely to make the jump from No. 6 to No. 4, and Alabama and Tennessee are creeping back into the mix after Clemson and Oregon both lost again last weekend.
