    Both TCU and Michigan pulled out wins and will likely remain in the top 4.

    The more I watch both those teams play, the more I think they don’t deserve to be in college football playoffs. Both have gotten a lot of ref help and badly pulled out wins vs some mediocre and bad teams.

    Right now it looks like Georgia is a lock for playoffs and they look a step above every team. Winner of Ohio State and Michigan is also a lock. If TCU remains undefeated they’ll make it, if not, I think they’ll be knocked out.

    If USC beats Notre Dame and Oregon, I think they have to make it also.

    So after OSU/Michigan knock one out, it’ll probably look like
    1. Georgia
    2. OSU/Michigan winner
    3. TCU
    4. USC

    However, if USC loses to Notre Dame and/or TCU losses it’ll get really interesting. Does loser of OSU/Michigan stay in top 4? Does Bama or LSU sneak in with 2 losses?

    If LSU beats Georgia in conference championship, I think LSU has to make it, but Georgia probably remains in top 4.

    A lot can happen

    Also, Notre Dame has to be kicking themselves for those brutal losses to Marshall and Stanford. They could be sitting in really good position for a playoff spot if they didn’t lose those games and knocked off USC, especially after blowing out clemson on national television.

    USC had the best weekend, as they beat a top 20 team and watched a team ahead of them lose (TN) and a couple others struggle.

    I think they are in, if they beat ND.

    Yes, Mich or Ohio St have to lose. The SEC playoff game could know one out or put an extra one in.

    Lots to go.

    Great to see Michigan throttle Ohio St. I hope that knocks them out of the playoffs.

    I just don't think TCU is as good as their record shows, but they are in, if they win out.

    Clemson lost to giant killer South Carolina, so now they, AL and TN all have 2 losses. I heard no 2 loss team has ever made it to the 4 team playoffs. That leaves Ohio St and USC (beating ND at half) with one loss and hoping a top 4 team loses their conference playoff game.

    USC with the big win. My projected top teams:

    1. Georgia 12-0
    2. Michigan 12-0
    3. TCU 12-0
    4. USC 11-1 (may be #5)
    5. Ohio St 11-1 (close call with USC)

    6. Alabama 10-2

    Next week's games:

    #1 Georgia v LSU
    #2 Michigan v Purdue
    #3 TCU v KA St
    #4 or #5 USC v Oregon or Wash

    Ohio St has no games left but may sneak in, if another team loses. If USC loses, they'd be in, for sure.

    Notre Dame once again outclassed by a good team, and program. Finished 8-4, which is about what I expected winning a couple of games like Clemson that I didn’t think they would win, and losing to teams like Marshall at home that I thought they would win. Things don’t get any easier, and maybe even tougher next year with the schedule, so I see about the same record for next year.

    The team did play better as the season progressed. and many of the best players return, so I'm holding out hope for better results- not great results, though.

    Starting the season at Texas A & M will not be easy. (I may try and go to that game.)

    Then NIU, at Purdue and Mia (OH) could leave us at 3-1 going into...

    Stanford at home

    @ GA Tech

    Navy (in NJ)

    FLA St

    Virginia

    ending the season...

    @USC

    MIA (FL)

    I could see 9-2, but 8-3 is more likely. Am I missing a 12th game?

    Oops missed on Tenn St, but what a messed up schedule with 5 home games in a row, and 5 away games in a row.
