New College Football Playoff odds released

Its last set of rankings will follow on Sunday, with the top four teams at that point reaching the playoff. Well, if you were living under a rock this past weekend, you will know that that group will change thanks to upsets knocking both the Crimson Tide and Hurricanes from the ranks of the unbeatens.

Saturday's conference championship games, at least three of which will match teams ranked in the CFP top 10, will be pivotal.

It's possible the final College Football Playoff spot will come down to the Buckeyes or Crimson Tide, teams with flawed resumes and championship pedigree.

Last week's group saw Alabama on top with the ACC well represented at the No. 2 and 3 spots with Miami and Clemson and Oklahoma rounding out the group at that point. Will a two loss Auburn team jump unbeaten and one loss teams by virtue of beating Georgia and Bama when they were on top?

If UM loses on Saturday, then Clemson would be in the playoff, and UM nearly assuredly would be the next highest-ranked ACC team (ahead of Virginia Tech and North Carolina State) and thus OB-bound.

The Tigers enter the SEC Championship on a five-game winning streak that includes scalps of two previously-ranked No. 1 teams in the nation.

Manchester United Face Tough Trip to Watford on Tuesday Night
The Watford revival has come as second-placed United have posed a diminishing threat away from home as the season has progressed. Manchester United are expected to rotate their squad a bit after making seven changes each in the last two games.

On the other hand, there would be 11-1 Alabama, which is left out of this weekend's SEC championship game after losing to Auburn on Saturday.

Now that's a Nick Saban press conference we'd like to see.

Although the Buckeyes enter the Big Ten Championship as a more tested contender than Wisconsin with victories over two Top 15 teams, they aren't a lock to take home hardware from Indianapolis given how well the Badgers have played.

Clemson (11-1) - I'm not an ACC homer and I also don't think SC was one of the top 25 teams in college football last week.

If Ohio State beats Wisconsin and Georgia beats Auburn, the highest-ranked non-playoff team from those conference would probably be one-loss Alabama or one-loss Wisconsin instead of three-loss Auburn or two-loss Penn State.
