And Then There Were Four

What a day in College Football as many teams took the field for the rights to their conference championship.

Some helped their case, and others knocked themselves out of college football playoff contention.

Here is a list of teams that bettered their case:


With a convincing 41-17 win over the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs, the Sooners kept their stride to and already very impressive 2017-2018 campaign.

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield rose to the occasion as he always seems to do, slinging four touchdowns on zero interceptions.

The only loss of the year came in Norman against Iowa State. This should not hold them back, however, as they have on the remainder of the games and took home the Big 12 championship yesterday.

Expect the Sooners to be in the top four.


The Tigers absolutely dismantled Miami. Heading into the half with a 21-0 lead, the Tigers blew out the Hurricanes in every aspect of the game.

The only blemish on the Tigers’ resume is a road loss at Syracuse, in which starting quarterback Kelly Bryant left early due to injury.

The Tigers, also, will be in the top four.


After losing to Auburn just two weeks ago, the Georgia Bulldogs came back and got revenge over the Auburn Tigers by winning the SEC championship by a score of 28-7.

With this win, the Bulldogs secure a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Ohio State:

This is where things get interesting.

The Ohio State Buckeyes took home the Big Ten conference championship over Wisconsin by a score of 27-21.

The first three spots are secured, its just this last one that there is a grey area.

Either the Buckeyes will get it, or Alabama will slip their way in despite not playing in a conference championship game.

On one hand, the Buckeyes are conference champs in one of the best conferences in the country. They have also beaten opponents like Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan and, of course, Wisconsin.

With that being said, they still are a two loss team with the ladder of the two losses coming in a blowout fashion. The Iowa Hawkeyes embarrassed the Buckeyes, beating them by a score of 55-24.

With Alabama, it’s not so much the teams they lost to, but more so the the lack of big wins. The Crimson Tide’s best win of the year came against LSU who lost to Troy on their home turf.

This is really a toss up, it’s going to come down to what the committee values more: big wins or lesser losses.
