Which really makes sense, if you think about it.  Georgia has a super-quality win over ND. Bama’s best win is over #38 Texas A&M.   Wisconsin looks solid and Penn State’s one loss (1 point on the road) is a much better loss than tOSUs (15 points at home) or OUs (7 points at home).

I am expecting the committee to come out with:

  • Bama #1
  • Georgia #2
  • Wisconsin #3
  • Ohio State or ND  #4

Right now there are 2 other unbeatens – UCF and Miami.   Miami and Notre Dame play each other on Nov 11.  What I am really interested to see is how the committee treats UCF.  My computer has them at #5 – they have some very good wins — in fact, their best win is much better than Bama or Wisconsin’s best win.   However, I suspect the committee will put them at about #20 in the initial poll. The way this season is shaking out UCF could be the only unbeaten in college football.  I will really like to see if a rematch with Memphis and them winning the AAC would be enough to get a mid-major in.
