Indianapolis To Host 2022 College Football Championship
Georgia won 20-19 at No. 24 Notre Dame on September 9, while Alabama opened September 2 with a 24-7 dumping of No. 3 Florida State in Atlanta, but those two nonconference foes have been heading in opposite directions since. Also, the so-called eye test matters and the committee has yet to see Iowa State blown off the field like MSU has been twice: Iowa State lost to Texas by 10 and lost to Iowa in overtime. Ohio State is No. 3 in the Associated Press poll, five spots ahead of the Sooners. Ohio State (7-1) 7.
"For the teams five through seven, their head-to-head results were very important to the committee", Hocutt said.
While the poll is bound to change, currently, the Dawgs would take on #4 Clemson while the Crimson Tide would play Notre Dame in the two semifinals.
The Badgers are only No. 9 in the CFP rankings.
Locally, USF (7-1) didnt crack the rankings, but found a clear way to a New Years Six bowl. Then comes the chance to earn quality wins - November 18 at No. 9 Wisconsin and November 25 against No. 6 Ohio State. Those rankings had some Sooners wondering if the committee would do something similar. "Everybody's hungry. We feel like our foot's in the door, so we want to go ahead and make it happen".
While Nick Saban might not have been watching, the rest of college football was glued to their TVs on Tuesday evening as the initial College Football Playoff rankings selected SEC East-leading Georgia at No. 1. Two unbeaten teams, Wisconsin and Miami, round out the top ten. Alabama has no victory against a CFP top-25 team. LSU's win over Syracuse is better than anything MSU has done in the non-conference and LSU's win over Auburn is better than any win MSU has, but that's about the only two respectable wins LSU has.
The prospects for Georgia, Alabama and Notre Dame are tied together. Miami (Fla.) (7-0) 11. The Big Ten could match Ohio State with one loss and Wisconsin with none. USC winning its next three games to finish the regular season 10-2 with an additional win in the Pac 12 title game would be pretty nice as well given Notre Dame's 49-14 beatdown of the Trojans two weeks ago.
There's a lot of work to be done to work this thing out.
However, there are some big clashes left on the schedule this year and it's highly likely that a couple of those teams could square off with each other before season's end.
