Updated Playoff projections for Clemson
|Sunday, September 22, 2019 10:44 AM-|
Clemson continued to cruise through its early schedule and the overall Playoff picture took a few more steps forward after week four.
ESPN’s FiveThirtyEight predictor gives Clemson a 77 percent shot at making the football final four and that can jump to closer to 80 percent with a win at UNC next week. The remaining three most-likely to join are Alabama (46), Ohio State (42) and Oklahoma (37), followed by Georgia (36), LSU (22) and Wisconsin (21).
Georgia improved its odds with a 23-17 win over No. 7 Notre Dame, while No. 13 Wisconsin dominated No. 11 Michigan, 35-14, to do the same. No. 8 Auburn kept their hopes alive with a 28-20 win at No. 17 Texas A&M.
The 538 model currently favors Dabo Swinney’s Tigers to win it all (23), ahead of Alabama (17) and Ohio State (12).
In terms of top resumes currently, ESPN’s Playoff panel likes Clemson as the top seed, followed by Alabama, Oklahoma and LSU the most, with Ohio State and Georgia not too far off.
