1. Florida State
2. Alabama
3. Oregon
4. Mississippi State
5. TCU
6. Baylor
7. Ohio State
8. Georgia
9. Ole Miss
10. Missouri

I can't put anyone ahead of the lone unbeaten major conference team. Alabama will have the best resume if they win out. Oregon is clearly a top 3 team. I can't see any way these Big 12 teams get into the playoff and win it with their lack of defense. SEC should get an automatic entry. If Missouri/Georgia went out and won the SEC championship game I'd put them in with 2 losses over most 1 loss teams.

Interesting. Loss of Gurley doesn't impact the UGA support? Not singling this post out, just a general question.

Florida has not looked great vs a fairly cupcake conference. I think ND might have been their only quality opponent and I'm not a fan of ND due to their cupcake schedule. That is why I put them at 4th. I think Oregon and Alabama would eat them alive.

I don't respect TCU as a top 5 team based on the eye test.

They should have lost to WVU and Kansas. I know, I know, they won. I just think there are 5-6 teams who would beat them if they played a series of games. That's the way I look at it, right or wrong. Alabama could easily have 3 losses too, but they play a much tougher schedule than most.

As a Buckeye fan, I'm really comfortable with TCU ahead of the Bucks at this point. Their lack of a championship game will be their undoing.
