College Football Playoff rankings: Prediction

There aren't many games remaining until the final CFP rankings are out.

But this week is making the CFP picture a little more cloudy. With Ohio State routing Michigan in Columbus, the Buckeyes will knock out the Wolverines from making the semifinals.

Michigan follows Washington State as a contender going into the week that is now out of the picture. With Washington State's home loss to Washington, the Cougars will have to settle for being a top team in the at-large pool for a New Year's Six game. Expect the Fiesta Bowl.

But if the final CFP spot is between Ohio State and Oklahoma, how would it go? Would the committee clearly favor one of the other? Right now, Ohio State is only No. 10 while Oklahoma is sixth, but the Buckeyes will move up considerably after beating Michigan. Ohio State hasn't looked that great otherwise, but a win against Michigan will rank among the best of the season — by any team.

Also this week, No. 3 Notre Dame closed out an undefeated regular season by winning at Southern California. Because the Irish aren't in a conference, Notre Dame should feel safe at 12-0 and seem headed to the CFP semifinals.

Here's how we predict the CFP and New Year's Six Game will look:

  • Peach Bowl: Florida vs. Penn State
  • Fiesta Bowl: Washington State vs. UCF
  • Rose Bowl: Michigan vs. Washington
  • Sugar Bowl: Georgia vs. Oklahoma
  • Cotton Bowl (Semifinal): Alabama vs. Ohio State
  • Orange Bowl (Semifinal): Clemson vs. Notre Dame
