Well, this afternoon there is now seven teams between Notre Dame and a return trip to the College Football Playoff -- but, I believe it's really down now to; LSU, Oklahoma and the Fighting Irish for the fourth spot.
Here's the seven ranked ahead of Notre Dame today.
- Ohio State
- Penn State
Now, we just have to finish ahead of four of these teams -- here's how this happens.
- Notre Dame wins out -- goes 11 - 1.
- There will not be three (3) Big Ten teams ahead of Notre Dame come the first week of December. That eliminates at least two of these teams -- Wisconsin and Penn State.
- So, it comes down to two teams -- LSU and Oklahoma -- competing with Notre Dame for that final spot.
LSU'S REMAINING SCHEDULE -- must lose two of these games...
- @ Mississippi State (3 - 3)
- #11 Auburn (5 - 1)
- @ #1 Alabama (6 - 0)
- @ Mississippi (3 - 4)
- Arkansas (2 - 4)
- Texas A&M (3 - 3)
OKLAHOMA'S REMAINING SCHEDULE -- loses big to Baylor or, is upset by Kansas State or Oklahoma State
- West Virginia (3 - 3)
- @ Kansas State (3 - 2)
- Iowa State (4 - 2)
- @ #18 Baylor (6 - 0)
- TCU (3 - 2)
- @ Oklahoma State (4 - 2)
And, we may need to see Auburn lose to Alabama -- because if Auburn beats LSU -- they will jump ahead of Notre Dame...
