Assume Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma and Georgia all win out, Alabama finishes 12-1 and Notre Dame finishes 11-1. In that scenario, Playoff Predictor makes Clemson and Georgia virtual locks and considers Michigan very likely to get in. The decision for the last spot would be almost a toss-up between Oklahoma and Alabama, but our model thinks the committee is more likely to select the Sooners, by a hair. Notre Dame would be the least likely of the six to get in.

Alabama has scored two TDs in two possessions against a Mississippi State defense that had allowed nine TDs all season. What's more, the Tide has rushed for 89 yards against a defense that allows 111.4 per game. So much for the post-LSU letdown theory.
