College Football Playoff predictions from FiveThirtyEight after Week 11

The college football season has just a couple of weeks left in the regular season and the number of teams that have a shot at making the College Football Playoff is dwindling.

There are probably eight teams that can still get into all of the fun, but some need help.

Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan and TCU control their own paths. Tennessee, USC, Clemson,

and LSU can still put themselves in good position to give the College Football Playoff selection committee something to think about.

One thing we know is either Ohio State or Michigan will lose in a couple of weeks, so it’s going to create some chaotic scenarios. Good luck trying to figure it all out.

That’s where the popular analytics website FiveThirtyEight comes into play.
