Championship weekend left little drama as only Oregon’s very slight upset of Utah raised any eyebrows. The Duck’s win further opened the door for the Big 12 Champion to enter the playoff discussion, and after Georgia’s loss to LSU, the door flung wide open for the Sooners to take the 4th and final playoff spot. The only real question remaining will be whom the committee slots in as the #1 team. The Billingsley Report still favors LSU by a wide margin over Ohio State based on the Tigers also possessing the Nation’s most difficult schedule. The Billingsley+ Ranking, which factors in margin of victory, slightly favors Ohio State. Both systems agree that Oklahoma should be the 4th place team.
The Playoff announcement is due on ESPN at 11AM CT.
