Today, we are going to be going over each power five conference’s teams with a chance to make the college football playoff this season.

ACC
4.Clemson (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:Just don’t lose. Clemson hasn’t looked like the team that we thought they were but if they win out they should very well be in the playoff.

Big 12
5.Oklahoma (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:After getting past Texas a week ago, they only have one more test.The Sooners have Baylor and if they can get past Matt Rhule’s team they should have no problem getting into the playoff.

14.Baylor (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:Beating Oklahoma has to be what Baylor does to make a national statement and get into the top ten to have a chance to get into the CFP.

Big Ten
3.Ohio State (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:With how dominant the Buckeyes have been, I don’t see anything put green grass for Ohio State’s playoff chances. Penn State may be a challenge for this team, but the way it’s looking is Ohio State will be in the playoff.

6.Penn State (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:How they can make the playoff:While Penn State may not have the talent Ohio State has, a win over the Buckeyes will set them up with great chances to get into the final four.

13.Wisconsin (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:A tough upset loss to Illinois set the Badgers back, but if they win out, and they will have to beat Ohio State in the regular season, and then likely in the Big Ten championship game.

Pac-12
11.Oregon (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:How they can make the playoff:After a tough loss in week one to Auburn, Oregon will have to win the Pac-12 without losing another game to get into the CFP.

12.Utah (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:Utah, like Oregon, had one tough loss. If both teams meet in Los Angeles in the Pac-12 championship with just one loss each, the winner will have a great shot to get into the CFP.

SEC
1.Alabama (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:Alabama does need to survive this stretch without Tua but those games are easy. First is a game at home versus bottom-dweller Arkansas and then a bye to prepare for LSU, where he will likely return to action. If they do survive the stretch without Tua, they will be in the CFP.

2.LSU (7-0)
How they can make the playoff:LSU will have to go through Auburn and Alabama within the next month. This will let us see if QB Joe Burrow and the tigers are a team that is top-four quality and CFP worthy.

7.Florida (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:After wins over Miami, Auburn, and a close loss versus LSU, Florida has completed a tough stretch but will have to show that they can beat Georgia in a few weeks.

9.Auburn (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:Auburn lost to Florida a few weeks ago but have been hitting on all cylinders before their tough stretch next month against Georgia and Alabama.

10.Georgia (6-1)
How they can make the playoff:After a tough upset loss to South Carolina, Georgia struggled to beat Kentucky on Saturday. Upcoming tests against Auburn and will prove if Georgia is still the king of the SEC East.
