Clemson in 2019 will not play a ranked team. They also didn't play a ranked team in 2018 and won it all. In 2016, they lost to an unranked Pitt, got in and won it all.Alabama should be out since they have no big wins. LSU is basically a lock now and probably the heavy favorite. OSU has played no one so far but should end the season with 3 big games. Weird schedule
You play who is on your schedule. If you lose, its less about who you've beaten and more about that loss. That Purdue loss is what killed OSU last year. Oklahoma loss to Texas, then got a chance to play them again. If OSU were to have gotten in last year, IMO they could have won it all...… and I hate Ohio State with a passion.
Bama may not have played anyone but they're still winning games by 4 TD's, just like last season and giving up 19 compared to 15. They may have lost to the only "good" team they've played, but they're the best 1 loss team in the country. Its shaping up that a 1 loss team gets in again this season.
