Tossup between Alabama and Ohio St. for #2. Clemson and Penn St. might be tossups for #4.
Georgia with win over Florida is definitely ahead of Oregon.
Don't be surprised if Florida and Auburn edge out Oregon, Oklahoma and Utah.
Could be:
1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Ohio St.
4. Penn St.
5. Clemson
6. Georgia
7. Florida
8. Auburn
9. Oregon
10. Oklahoma
11. Baylor
12. Utah
13. Michigan
14. Notre Dame
15. Minnesota
16. Wisconsin
17. Memphis
18. Kansas St.
19. Iowa
20. Cincinnati
21. Wake Forest
22. Boise St.
23. Texas A&M
24. SMU
25. Texas

Alabama has beaten absolutely no one. Their best win is against Texas A&M. Ohio St and Penn St has beaten two current ranked teams. So if the committee value big wins, Bama has zero.

Georgia beat Florida but has a bad loss to S. Carolina. Oregon has no bad losses and some very good wins. Two loss Auburn and Florida will not be ranked ahead of Oregon.

Your SEC bias is showing but you're allowed to show it....03-lmfao

CFP doesn't seem to mind bad losses. See Ohio St. in 2014. Oregon doesn't have any wins over ranked teams. Auburn has a win over Oregon. Florida has a win over Auburn.

This isn't my ranking. Its how I think the CFP will rank it. There are 5 SEC teams that are clearly top 15 caliber and those wins over each other will matter to the committee. Maybe more than they should.

1) LSU
2) Ohio State

3) Alabama
4) Penn State (I’d have them at 3 myself)
5) Clemson

Gets too hard after that

I don't know what happened in 2014 with the 1st ranking of that season. And I would be shocked if Bama is #2 because their resume doesn't justify it. And I'm not entirely sure if Bama beats LSU this Saturday they would jump to #1 because of their lousy schedule.

But we shall see tomorrow night.

Let me start by saying I have no idea what the CFP Selection Committee will do...

That said, here are the top 10 according to Massey's composite computer rankings:

Rank Team
1 Ohio St
2 LSU
3 Penn St
4 Clemson
5 Alabama
6 Oregon
7 Auburn
8 Utah
9 Georgia
10 Oklahoma

I'd probably give LSU the edge for #1. The only flaw on them might be the amount of points they have given up? I know this is not your personal list, just giving my thoughts.

Clemson, Alabama and Ohio State are also the only schools on that list rated in the top 10 in both Offense and Defense. I'm sure when the committee punches in their numbers with their fat little fingers that this is a pretty big part of their equation.

For the record, please don't try and defend LSU by saying the points were scored in "junk time". The three I listed above didn't give up points with their 2nd and 3rd string players. Besides, like I said, LSU should get the #1 ranking as of now.
