Nittany Lions No. 12 In Latest College Football Playoff Rankings

Florida Gators' New Year's Six bowl chances look better in latest College Football Playoff rankings

The Georgia Bulldogs also control their own destiny, as a win over Alabama in the SEC championship game seals their fate in the College Football Playoff. Head coach Brian Kelly's squad has wins over No. 4 MI (24-17), No. 19 Northwestern (31-21), No. 20 Syracuse (36-3) and No. 24 Pittsburgh (19-14).

Alabama and Clemson would claim the first two spots, while every other conference title-winner would have three loses. If the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes and finish with just one loss - at Notre Dame back in September - could the committee leave them out of the playoff? Ohio State Buckeyes' faithful felt slighted big time about being left out despite the fact that they won the Big Ten in 2017. UCF moved ahead of West Virginia (which dropped to No. 13 after losing at Oklahoma State) and leapfrogged Ohio State. Let's look at what has to happen for the Knights to make it in to the final foursome.

Notre Dame, fresh off its big win over Syracuse, heads to Los Angeles to face Southern California (5-6), which Saturday handed UCLA and Chip Kelly their third win of the year. Even so, both of the opponents of Georgia and USF have a respectable 7-4 record. Notre Dame 4. MI 5. The week kicks off early with Oklahoma against West Virginia and Washington against Washington State on Friday night. Boise State 24. Pittsburgh 25. Would the committee hold a loss against either team, particularly with Georgia's sole defeat to this point having come on the road at No. 7 LSU (9-2)?

Why didn't Washington State jump LSU?

"We spent considerable time talking about UCF and Ohio State", committee chair Rob Mullens told ESPN on Tuesday night.

That would leave Clemson 12-1, with a loss to Pitt - the team UCF crushed.
