do we sneak in the college football playoff if....

i know we tend to get blasted for hypotheticals on this website, but i had an interesting thought...

may have been addressed before but i thought i'd ask...

What IF, we go 11-1 this year (losing only to FSU) and they go to the ACC championship because of their win over us. As we sit now at #16, we'd probably be around #8-11 by the time we play them. a loss would drop us back somewhere in the neighborhood of #15-17. that would give us 8 more games, with some potential with quality wins over UNC, Louisville, and SC.

what are the odds that we climb high enough, with the 1 loss to a top 5 team, to get into the playoff as the #4 team.

Hope everyone has a great and safe football season! Go Tigers!

I'd say less than 10% chance. Any 1 loss ACC team will be very hard pressed to make it in...IMO.

There is a pretty good chance, depending of course on what happens with other teams.


I don't think we sneak in

We will need to win the ACC to get to the Play-off. I will be surprised if 2 SEC teams make it in. At least one of the 5 power conferences will be left out automatically. There will be huge pressure on the committee to choose a team from the other 4 power conferences.

No.


Depends on how close the FSU game is. IF

A 13-0 FSU team is in.

An 11-1 Tiger squad is in provided the loss to FSU is close ... just as you stated.

A 13-0 SEC team is in (DUH). A 12-1 SEC team is probably in ... and POSSIBLY this could mean two worthy SEC teams ... though I doubt that happens.

BIG TEN is out ... especially after Oregon and LSU thump two of their better teams.

PAC 12 squads beat each other too much to rate an entry.

The Oklahoma/Baylor team may rate ... stay tuned.

So yes, an 11-1 Clemson team gets in.

That's wishful thinking.***

No way in Hades does an 11-1 non champion ACC team make it over the conference champs from the Big10, Big 12, Pac 12.

They will not leave out 2 of those 3 to take a second ACC team, no way no how.

And you still have to consider a second SEC team in the equation which is much more of a real possibility.

I still think it will the champ from 4 out of the 5 major champs.

I think it really depends on what FSU does.

If FSU beats us and goes on to the ACCCG and wins it there's no way we get in because FSU at only 1 loss or less will be in. They won't take 2 ACC teams.

IF FSU beats us and loses 2 more ACC games, we go to ACCCG and win it, we are likely in at 12-1. I think this is the best case scenario aside from beating FSU.

If FSU beats us, goes to ACCCG and loses it, assuming we're still 11-1, they likely drop below us in the rankings and it may be possible to get the bid but highly doubtful. I think at that point no ACC team goes.

UGA is the only game we could lose and still have a chance to make it to the playoff. we've got to win the ACC, which means we must beat FSU. and a lost to USC at home at the end of the season and we're done.


No.

That would require conference champs to have multiple losses. Even a one or two loss conference champ would be seeded before someone without a conference title.
