CFP #4 Predictions

Last week was the first time ever that the Top 10 stayed the same for two weeks in a row. It looked like that streak would continue for a third week until Oklahoma St ended WVU’s chances at the playoff late in the game. With WVU out, two questions now need to be answered:

  1. Does Ohio State move up to #9 after beating an unranked Maryland team, whose quarterback tore his ACL last week, 52 to 51 in overtime after the Terrapins failed to convert a two-point attempt to win the game. The committee has held the Buckeyes at #10 for close wins to bad teams before, like a then two-win Nebraska gave them a hard time, and Ohio State ended up winning by five points.
  2. Is this the week that UCF finally cracks the Top 10? The Golden Knights took advantage of a College GameDay atmosphere and handled #24 Cincinnati. UCF crawled its way up to #11 last week. I believe they come in at #10 by default because #12 Syracuse lost and #13 and below have too many losses. They will also stay behind Ohio St because of strength of schedule. OSU just has more quality wins.

My predictions for this week are:

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Michigan
  5. Georgia
  6. Oklahoma
  7. LSU
  8. Washington St
  9. Ohio State
  10. UCF
