College Football Playoff projections after Week 7https://clemsonwire.usatoday.com/lists/college-football-playoffs-week-7-projections-georgia-ohio-state-tennessee-clemson-tigers/
Since UGA & Tenn have a game coming up 11/4/22 - Vols are Between the Hedges for an 8 pm night game - don't see both of them in the CFP.
IMO; Vols have to win out to make the CFP; UGA as defending NC might
get in with 1 loss - but. IMO, it would have to be in the SECCG. Don't think Dawgs could lose to Tenn, sit on the sidelines for SECCG, & then make it ino CFP.
IMO, only way for Ole Miss, 7-0, to make into the CFP is to beat both Bama & SEC-East winner (UGA ?); a 1 loss Ole Miss has no chance for CFP.
tOSU plays Penn St Oct 29, but Michigan's 41-17 beatdown of Penn ST makes me think tOSU will beat them as well & then cruise to the game with Michigan.
Michigan - no competition - until they play tOSU Nov 26th; while I don't see both of them in the CFP, it could happen if enough other teams get beat & look bad.
No other Big 10 team has a chance.
IMO, for either TCU (Big 12) - 6-0 or UCLA (Pac 12) - 6-0 to have a chance, they need to not just stay unbeaten, but to win convincingly, & hope teams ahead of them lose.
Neither of those conferences has a chance for a 1 loss team to get into CFP.
Clemson currently 7-0 & #5 in AP plays Syrcause 6-0 AP#14 at home this saturday; beat Syracuse (no other quality teams left on schedule) & Clemson will probably slide into the CFP.
As Bobbie Bowden found out there is a distinct advantage to being the big frog in the ACC puddle & only having to get up for 1 or 2 games.
As always, it comes down to what happens in the SEC.
