Which teams will make the College Football Playoff? Ultimately, the selection committee will decide. Until then, there will be a lot of campaigning. Each week, we'll unveil what we think one team's campaign message should be. Take a look at past posters here.

Although the top three teams in the playoff hunt -- Alabama, Oregon and Florida State -- seem to have solidified their positions, there is one more weekend for chaos. Can their conference championship opponents spoil their playoff hopes? Missouri, Arizona and Georgia Tech are going to give it their best shot -- and possibly make their own playoff case in the process.

Auburn has quickly and quietly made it's way to the front of the pack of one-loss teams. Boasting a 6-1 record, 3-1 in the formidable SEC West, and with the Tigers' lone loss coming at consensus No. 1 Mississippi State, the Tigers are making their case for College Football Playoff inclusion. Can Gus Malzahn take the plucky Tigers back to the national championship game?

Ole Miss is the toast of the town after going on the road and dominating Texas A&M. The state of Mississippi continues to dominate in the polls and in our Power Rankings. But will they be among the four teams selected by the committee? Time will tell. But surely a little campaigning can't hurt. As they say, the best offense is a great defense.

Mississippi State's upset of then-No. 8 LSU -- the team's first win at Death Valley since 1991 -- catapulted the Bulldogs into the rankings and College Football Playoff contention. Dan Mullen has a star on his hands in Dak Prescott -- and a week off to prepare for a visit from No. 6 Texas A&M. In other words, he has plenty to smile about.

South Carolina is back in the College Football Playoff hunt after taking down Georgia, 38-35. Steve Spurrier continues to have the Dawgs' number, and his glee after the game was palpable. “Some wins are better than others,” said Spurrier. “This one was better than most others.” Spurrier has the Gamecocks back in the race for a conference and national championship, and that's a good thing for everyone.

Texas A&M wasn't top of mind for many entering the season, but the Aggies made a statement Thursday night. A road game at South Carolina and a new quarterback could have been disastrous. Instead, Texas A&M's 52-28 drubbing of the Gamecocks launched the Aggies into the national title discussion -- and gave coach Kevin Sumlin something to cheer about.
