THE PLAY-OFF POLL
This is not THE play off poll, this is THE play off poll this week, with three to go and all the Championship games .
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame THIS IS ALL THAT MATTERS, these four - 5 and 6 could matter - if someone stumbles which could happen
- Oklahoma State
- Michigan State
- Florida State
- MISSISSIPPI STATE
- North Carolina
Clemson has Syracuse , Wake Forrest and a most hapless and coachless South Carolina on their schedule - with probably #23 North Carolina in the ACC play off. They should clean this slate.
Alabama has #17 Mississippi State, Charleston Southern and a rebuilding Auburn before meeting Florida in the SEC playoff in Atlanta. I dont see anything getting in their way after the beat down they put on LSU this past weekend.
Ohio State has the hardest part of its almost cupcake season coming up Illinois this weekend then #13 and #14 coming up with Michigan State and Michigan.. both good games. Iowa and Baylor with fingers crossed ( Clemson and Bama too, who would much rather face Iowa or Baylor ) Although a loss this late does not 100% drop you out of the 4.
Notre Dame. IS BACK - I guess, this one snuck up on me. They have Wake Forrest, then Boston College, and then in the biggest game left in this college football season face #7 Stanford Thanksgiving weekend... If anyone is going to drop out it will be the Irish after this one, and I bet Sanford would hop over Iowa and Baylor into the play off.
