COLLEGE FOOTBALL FINAL FOUR
The College Football Final Four would only be realistic with a College Football 8 Team Playoff system that would produce a true national championship. As was stated by Coach Mike Leach a year ago, only with a 64 team playoff format much like the NCAA Basketball Tournament that keeps so many on the edge of their seats. But let's take baby steps on establishing that monstrosity that would like kinda like the Texas State Playoff Brackets. Below is the College Football Today Top 25, which was released before midnight every week before Sunday. We do not have the exact order, but 21 teams are identical as the CFP selection committee members poll. We will be talking about why we have the other four remaining teams in our CFB Today Top 25, but first let's highlight the College Football Playoff projections that were correct and how the 8 team CFP would have panned out.
8 TEAM CFP SCENARIO
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
CFB PLAYOFF HISTORY
This will go down in CFB Playoff History as the greatest season of all time, as first 21 teams in both the College Football Today poll are accurate, as our Top 25 projections have been all CFB season.

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.
