CFP rankings: 1-6
- 1. Clemson
- 2. Alabama
- 3. Oklahoma
- 4. Iowa
- 5. Michigan State
- 6. Notre Dame
Oklahoma and Iowa are No. 3 and 4 respectively as Michigan State and Notre Dame are the first two teams out.
Iowa is 4th and Michigan State is 5th. Pretty much interchangeable, as both teams need to win out (and beat one of the other). A Notre Dame loss to Stanford would still be extremely helpful for the Big Ten, as the Irish are 6th.
