"While UCF may not have the depth of talent of Ohio State, the committee felt that right now, today after Week 12, UCF has the more all-around, complete team".

According to the model, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence puts up over 200 yards and two touchdowns through the air, while the Tigers' defense doesn't allow any SC running back to hit 50 yards as Clemson covers in over 50 percent of simulations.

Michigan Wolverines tight end Zach Gentry (83) tries to block a kick in the second half against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Stadium. Or a 12-1 Washington State team with a Pac-12 title? Ohio State Buckeyes' faithful felt slighted big time about being left out despite the fact that they won the Big Ten in 2017. Expecting an undefeated Notre Dame team makes the playoff, that leaves one spot remaining for the Knights to possibly squeak in.

Alabama will try to avenge its Iron Bowl loss past year against Auburn (7-4) in Tuscaloosa on Saturday.




And Georgia will host Georgia Tech (7-4). As some are already noticing, those teams' inclusion in the playoff would lock out three Power Five conferences - which could be a problem for the four-team playoff just five years into its 12-year contract. The night window includes South Carolina-Clemson, Kentucky-Louisville, LSU-Texas A&M and Notre Dame-USC. Two-loss LSU took care of Rice.

It starts Friday night as Oklahoma faces still-formidable West Virginia on the road. Boise State hosts Utah State in a late (10:15 ET) showdown to decide the Mountain West's Mountain Division victor. Boise State 24. Pittsburgh 25.

There are no good solutions, and the most likely outcome is a bad one for someone.
