CFP rankings: Predicting the top six after conference championships

Conference championships are in the books and the next stop is the College Football Playoff,

which will take place on New Year’s Eve.

It was an exciting weekend, starting with Utah’s big win over USC in Pac-12 championship.

 In the Big 12, TCU fell to Kansas State in overtime,

but the Horned Frogs played as hard as any team you’ll ever see in a losing effort. Down in Atlanta,

 Georgia moved to 13-0 with a win over LSU. Clemson took care of UNC in Charlotte.

 And in the Big Ten, Michigan remained perfect with a win over Purdue.

6. Tennessee Volunteers (10-2) Why: They beat the team ranked ahead of them, but they also got crushed by South Carolina,

 and lost Hendon Hooker for the year. It was a good run, Tennessee,

5. Alabama Crimson Tide (10-2) Why: As much as Alabama fans may think they deserve it, they’re wrong. 

You don’t get to have two losses, sit out the conference championship and still make the playoffs.

4. TCU Horned Frogs (12-1) Why: An undefeated regular season with five top-25 wins.

The Horned Frogs’ one loss came on Saturday to No. 10 Kansas State in overtime, a team they beat by 10 earlier in the season.

3. Ohio State Buckeyes (11-1) Why: I’m in the minority here of people who think Ohio State will be No. 3 and not No. 4. 

2. Michigan Wolverines (13-0) Why: 13-0, Big Ten champions, a road win over Ohio State. This is a no-brainer

1. Georgia Bulldogs (13-0) Why: This is an easy one. The defending national champs are 13-0 and SEC title winners. Georgia will be No. 1.
