The remaining front runners 12-0 Clemson, ACC Championship v UNC 11-1 Alabama, SEC Championship v Florida 10-1 Oklahoma, "Big 12 Championship" v Oklahoma State 11-1 Michigan State, B1G Championship v Iowa 12-0 Iowa, B1G Championship v Iowa 10-1 Notre Dame v Stanford Clemson, Iowa and Alabama clearly control their own destiny. If they win out there´s no way they get left out. I think a 11-1 OU holds off a 11-1 Notre Dame, I think a 12-1 B1G champ Michigan State may lose out to Notre Dame not because they deserve it (MSU will have 4 top 18 wins if they win the B1G), but Notre Dame has the bigger name recognition. Same possibly goes for Oklahoma State. So far so good, but what needs to happen for a 11-2 P12 Champ Stanford to make it? And what happens if Florida or UNC pull the upset? I think it´s safe to assume that **** Baylor, Michigan and Ohio State are out of playoff contention.
