Georgia and Auburn will meet again in the SEC Championship game with College Football Playoff berth on the line

Georgia and Auburn will meet again in the SEC Championship game with College Football Playoff berth on the line

The College Football Playoff picture for this year is starting to take shape, but what would the rankings look like if the BCS was still in place?

The ACC and SEC are the only two games that appear to guarantee the champion will be going to the playoff regardless of the outcome. Oklahoma State (9-3), 20. Auburn: Win and you're in 4. But Wisconsin at No. 5 would reduce the chances of the Buckeyes jumping the Tide with a win. Alabama: Needs a little help while it watches from home this week 6.

Georgia then dropped to No. 7, which is where it was until this week.

No. 7 Miami is close to a lock with a win.

Regardless of how accurate the above projections are, the playoff field will be made up of teams in that group of eight.

Baker Mayfield's last chance to give someone else the opportunity to win the Heisman Trophy.

Clemson also will face Miami for the ACC title and Oklahoma faces No. 11 TCU for the Big 12 title.

A loss to Auburn in the SEC Championship would prevent the Bulldogs from reaching the playoff.

No. 10 USC and No. 11 TCU are still hoping to be a part of the conversation.

.

With that established, here's what we'll be talking about after Tuesday's reveal. Could two make it?

No. 1 Clemson (minus 9 1/2) vs. The committee does get to decide which teams go where.

Dabo Swinney's bunch has wins over Auburn, Virginia Tech, NC State and SC, with a really bad loss against Syracuse.

This debate has stakes, too. Don't assume that it's the next team up just because it's No. 5 right now. Remember, both teams are 11-1 right now.

The No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers will meet on Saturday in the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis. In the Big 12, a win by Oklahoma over TCU would essentially clinch a playoff spot for the Sooners. Auburn looks guaranteed to be the first if the Tigers beat Georgia.

Nick Saban and Alabama are down, but the Tide have the most outs of any team on the outside looking in - or, at the least, the most arguments to create within the committee. Then comes the Big Ten Championship Game, where Ohio State can bolster its uneven resume by handing No. 4 Wisconsin its first loss. But UCF, the only other unbeaten team in FBS other than Wisconsin, moved up just one spot to No. 14 after beating USF (10-2) last week in a dramatic and thrilling game.

"If all goes as planned with Clemson and Oklahoma winning, you take the victor of the SEC over Alabama and then if Wisconsin wins you have to take a conference champion". Ohio State would be coming off four straight wins and a highly-valued conference championship, but one of its two losses was an unexpected beatdown at the hands of a lesser team. But the Hurricanes play Clemson in the ACC title game on Saturday in Charlotte, N.C.
