LSU and OSU are in regardless of today. If Clemson loses they’d be out, but they’re not losing. So unless Georgia wins, it’s gonna be the Big 12 champ as #4 (most likely Oklahoma).
Would love to see Clemson lose. Dabo is such a whiner. 

That's pretty clear and straightforward. 

So maybe it's really just about LSU/Georgia.  I agree LSU has looked like #1 or #2 all year, but to me that's a play-in game.  How would you really justify LSU over Oklahoma after they just lost to one of the other playoff teams? 

To me that's a different argument than if OSU were to stumble against a team that isn't going to the playoff (not to mention one they already beat).  And, yes, I realize LSU is still going to go, and there's precedent for it.  Everyone would probably rather see LSU, anyway.  But I don't really think it's right, unless you lost in a controversial or fluke way.

I think you have to compare complete resumes. Oklahoma 2 wins over Baylor who will be around 10th I’d guess. Oklahoma win over OK St who is about 25th. Lost to KSU who is unranked.

 

LSU would have wins over Bama and Auburn...both about #10...AND Florida about #8. Loss would be to #3 team

 

LSU better resume by a little

I guess I used a lot of words to say I don't think two teams from the same conference should get into the playoffs.  Especially not when they just decided it on the field.

That’s a fair stance

LSU should be up 28-3 but dropped pass and missed holding

Writing is on the wall...this blowout allows LSU to jump OSU for one seed.  LSU then gets home cooking in Peach Bowl against OU.  OSU heads to Fiesta Bowl to play Clemson.

UC, down by five, gets a first down with ~45 sec left on the Memphis 20 yd line and the clock is stopped to move the chains.  With no timeouts left, they give away 1st down by spiking it instead of gathering themselves and running a meaningful play.  Then they get a false start penalty and lose the ball on downs.  Need to have more poise under pressure, like Joe Burrow, and make the most of the situation.

Worried about this as well. Need to roll tonight.

Going thru both LSU and Clemson would be no easy task.....that said, I think playing Clemson will better prepare them for LSU's passing game.

Currently OSU’s worst nightmare. What the fuck is the defense doing. Fuck!

They can play like shit for almost an entire half and still win by 20+.

3-4 games this year where they've looked beatable (if they're playing a Clemson/LSU/Bama)....but at their best I don't think anyone can play with them.

wtf dude - was it really necessary to blow the QB up on the last play of the game?!?

So the 1 seed will play Oklahoma in the Peach to ensure no geographical disadvantage in making the 1 seed play out west closer to OU campus. 2 seed will play Clemson in the Peach.

Not sure why Georgia is getting so much love from the committee. I don’t think they can beat Wisconsin. Sure LSU looked great, but Georgia lost to SC, one of the worst teams in the SEC.

Is Illinois much better than SC?
