Where Georgia is ranked in latest College Football Playoff poll

  • When College Football Playoff rankings are released, Alabama could be in uncharted waters

It took 12 wins, but the Wisconsin Badgers (12-0, 9-0 Big Ten) are finally there, ranked fourth in this week's rankings and will most likely be one of four teams to play for College Football's National Championship if they can beat Ohio State in Saturday night's Big Ten Championship game against Ohio State (7:17 p.m.) in Indianapolis. The Bulldogs moved up after Miami lost to Pittsburgh and Alabama stayed ahead of Georgia after its 26-14 loss to Auburn.

The debate between what to do with a two-loss Ohio State with the Big Ten championship is one that has been brought up for a few weeks now. At least one team ranked above Alabama tonight will need to lose this weekend.

That is all that stands between Wisconsin and a berth in the College Football Playoff.

But a potential Alabama-Ohio State controversy looms.

Oklahoma and Wisconsin control their own playoff destiny, but the same can't be said for their conference championship opponents.

Clemson (11-1) was the No. 1 team Tuesday, up two spots from last week.

The other three bowls have no contractual obligations, though one spot is reserved for the highest-ranked champion from the Group of Five conferences. Oklahoma and Wisconsin round out the top four. Auburn now 10-2 on the season is playing the best football in the nation and has beaten two No. 1 teams in the last 21 days. The reigning champs are followed by Auburn, Oklahoma and Wisconsin.

Ohio State (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten) is coming off a 31-20 win over MI. Then again, if both Ohio State and TCU win, perhaps the Buckeyes and Crimson Tide will both make the playoff. From there, an ironclad top seven fills with Alabama (11-1), Georgia (11-1) and Miami (Fla.) (10-1). Georgia would end the year 12-1 as the SEC champion, which qualifies as a virtual lock in the playoff era coming out of this conference.

No. 5 Alabama will sit home and watch this weekend, as will No. 9 Penn State.

Even though they'd have the Big 12 championship, it's hard to envision a scenario where a two-loss TCU team gets in over Alabama.

The possibility of Clemson losing to Miami but getting into the playoff anyway is on the table. The Trojans and Frogs have similar resumes now, and a win over No. 3 Oklahoma might give TCU more ammunition to make a jump.

Peach Bowl: No. 6 Georgia vs.

The only way Alabama could get in over Ohio State, because it's not going to on paper, is if the committee just said - the coaches in the room looked around and said, "I wouldn't want to play them. To be able to say that we flipped it and went 9-3 is just an unbelievable accomplishment for this team and this program". The lack of a marquee nonconference win - their game against Georgia Tech was canceled, although that wouldn't have helped much anyway - has hurt them, and they're far out of the conversation.
