I really love these four College football teams that are currently ranked in the top 4. Having the LSU Tigers, Ohio State Buckeyes and Georgia Bulldogs in adds new energy in comparison to teams that were ranked in the past. There are four teams I will be looking out for during rivalry week which is this weekend, as well as the following week for conference championship match-ups. One or maybe two of these teams in the top 4 will be knocked out in the upcoming weeks and making the room a team to move in.
It is really great that the Big Ten has a solid representative in the top 4, being the Ohio State Buckeyes which is the only team I see capable of competing with any team they play against. The last test that stands in the way of the Buckeyes way of making it to the College football playoff is their rival the Michigan Wolverines, who would love to tarnish their opportunity at making it to the college football playoff, as well as their perfect season.
The LSU Tigers have been on a roll this season. And certainly on their way to the Southeastern Conference Championship game against a Georgia Bulldogs team given a second chance after a win against the Auburn Tigers. If the Tigers get passed the Bulldogs, the Tigers punch their ticket into the College football playoff.
The Georgia Bulldogs were given a second chance despite losing at Sanford Stadium to the South Carolina Gamecocks. After that loss at Sanford Stadium, I personally could not, and still cannot see them as contenders against any of these other teams, despite getting passed the Auburn Tigers at Jordan-Hare Stadium. In order for the Bulldogs to punch their ticket into the College football playoff, they have to get passed LSU in the Southeastern Conference Championship game which will not be easy.
The Alabama Crimson Tide has a great chance on getting back into the College football playoff picture, even though they will not be in the Southeastern Conference Championship game. With either LSU or Georgia being soon-to-be knocked out of the picture during their Southeastern Conference Championship match-up, it all boils down to their showdown against the Auburn Tigers in the Iron Bowl. All they have to do is win in an impressive fashion and that may sway the committees decision on letting them in.
