CFP RANKINGS WEEK 14
2018 CFP Final Rankings at college football today are below and why we decided on each teams position in the 2018-2019 College Football Playoff. When it is all said and done, the 13 member College Football Playoff committee (below) will have the final say on who will compete for the College Football Playoff and College Football FBS National Championship. We believe the committee will do the following below with the top 8 college football teams.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF SELECTION
The only other scenario that could happen, is if the inevitable SEC bias comes into effect in the playoff selection committees thought process is Georgia remaining at number four overall. This would create mass hysteria in the media and produce yet another Alabama vs Georgia rematch scenario that would drive in large amounts of revenue. Georgia played Alabama very tough in the SEC Championship and it was honestly epic how the story of Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa is playing out. Both have handled the situation with the utmost respect for one another and their teammates. They battled hard together in the SEC Championship and when it was all said and done, were the two headed monster I said Nick Saban would use when needed in a close game. Why? The two simply bring different dynamics to a offense that are extremely hard to identify in a defensive scheme. They both have very unique skill sets that are tailored to succeeding at a high level in certain college style offenses. Tua and Hurts both have the ability to play in NFL and win games for their teams, because simply put, they are leaders molded by one of the best College Football coaches in the game. Good luck finding a way to beat Alabama in the College Football Playoff, because when you give coaches like Nick Saban that amount of time to study his opponent, you better be able to adapt to take down the defending national champions.

"The College Football Playoff is not an officially sanctioned championship event by the NCAA, the sport's governing body. The NCAA has never recognized an official national championship for FBS football, instead merely recognizing the decisions made any of a number of independent major championship selectors." -Wiki
A 13 member committee completes this selection process, instead of the BCS computers that used to finish the NCAA FBS Top 25. Because the Tournament only has four teams, this usually creates a cause for concern among power five programs and other less lucrative programs in smaller conferences like UCF. The fact of the matter is, anyone can claim a national title these days and we plan on crowning our champion by influencing all members of every Top 25 committee to do whats right for not only each college football program, but also each individual student-athlete who deserves a shot at the national title.
TOP 4 COLLEGE FOOTBALL TEAMS 2018
Lets take a look at how our College Football Playoff model would project this year in College Football Today.
SEC Championship - #1 Alabama vs #5 Georgia
Big Ten Championship - #22 NorthWestern vs #6 Ohio St
ACC Championship - #2 Clemson vs #23 Pitt
Big 12 Championship - #7 Oklahoma vs #15 Texas
PAC-12 Championship - #8 Washington vs #19 Utah
Wow, so we would automatically have Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Washington in the College Football 8 Team Playoff as automatic Power 5 Conference winning bids for the right to compete in the CFP. The remaining three teams are now very visibly easy to mostly everyone involved with this selection process and they would be as follows: Notre Dame, Georgia and UCF. The winning streak UCF has been able to produce has been quite fun to watch and they were able to complete yet another undefeated season in the American Conference. Many would argue for others for that remaining 8th ranking in the College Football Playoff, but their overall body of work would then be much harder to look past.
1. Alabama vs Washington
2. Clemson vs UCF
3. Notre Dame vs Ohio State
4. Oklahoma vs Georgia
BCS FINAL FOUR 2018
