The system would rank Wisconsin and Clemson as No. 1 and No. 2 with Auburn, Georgia, and Alabama on the outside looking in.

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

Kelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after his team scores a touchdown against the South Carolina Gamecocks during their game at Williams-Brice Stadium on November 25, 2017 in Columbia, South Carolina.

Each of the top four teams plays a conference title game this Saturday against another top-10 team, creating potential play-in playoff games. That's two wins better than Alabama's best win over No. 17 LSU. They got a lot of flak for it a year ago, especially after Ohio State got crushed by Clemson.

Hocutt's comment seemed to set Alabama up for a letdown should Ohio State beat Wisconsin and No. 3 Oklahoma defeat No. 11 TCU in the Big 12 Championship Game.

By not being the fringe team in this week's College Football Playoff ranking, the Sooners could be a "win and they're in" situation during the Big 12 Championship Game. Even less likely. An idle, two-loss Penn State or a 12-0 UCF wouldn't make a dramatic jump in the final weekend, either.

Clemson has a victory over six of the top eight teams since 2013 and has won the last meeting it has had against Auburn, Oklahoma, Alabama, Miami (FL) and Ohio State.

Alabama fans will be rooting hard for Ohio State to win the Big Ten championship this season because it is one of two ways Alabama can reach the playoff this season.

"If all goes as planned with Clemson and Oklahoma winning, you take the victor of the SEC over Alabama and then if Wisconsin wins you have to take a conference champion". The Pac-12 is not going to get a team in the playoff, and with the Rose Bowl reserved as a semifinal game, the Pac-12 champ has to go somewhere else; the Fiesta Bowl feels like the best fit to me.

Clemson also will face Miami for the ACC title and Oklahoma faces No. 11 TCU for the Big 12 title. "Alabama needs help. They need Oklahoma or Wisconsin to lose and then they could get in".

The wild card is Ohio State. A TCU win over Oklahoma likely would be enough for the Crimson Tide to slide back in. If Clemson lost a close game to Miami, it would still have three top-25 wins and seven wins against FBS teams that have winning records, keeping open the possibility of two ACC teams getting in.

Auburn and Georgia will collide in the SEC Championship Game, the first to be played in the new Mercedes-Benz Dome in Atlanta.

No. 11 Southern California (minus 4) vs. Additionally, a few more upsets on Saturday could result in this week's No. 1 team not falling as far in the final rankings with a loss and possibly sliding into the playoff as a No. 4 seed. Maybe Notre Dame could move up and in if some of its previous opponents play well this weekend. Win and you're in 3.
