Seeding a sixty-four team college football tournament for the 2019-2020 season

Today, I’m going to be announcing the seedings and pairings for what a sixty-four team tournament would’ve looked like in college football during the 2019-2020 season.

Basic Rules:
1.The four teams that made the playoff are the top seeds (LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, and Oklahoma).
2.Like in the basketball tournament, the top two seed cannot play with the top one seed.
3.Also, I tried my best to not put any of the top four seeded teams together that were in the same conference, but some were inevitable.
4.I used locations that would’ve been used for the 2020 NCAA Basketball Tournament.

College Football Playoff 2018-19 Initial Game Predictions

Orange Bowl (Miami,FL)
1.Alabama 35
4.Oklahoma 31

This is the first REAL defense Heisman front runner and Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray has seen.We will see how Kyler Murray will do against an SEC defense,but with Tua at full strength,Alabama isn’t losing.

Cotton Bowl (Arlington,TX)
2.Clemson 34
3.Notre Dame 30

Notre Dame should take an early lead but seniors on the defensive side for Clemson will lead Clemson to a four point win.

My FINAL 2018-19 College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six Predictions

The top four teams are going to be announced at around Noon ET so here are my final predictions.

CFP
1.Alabama
4.Oklahoma

2.Clemson
3.Notre Dame

I would pick Georgia to be in the fourth spot because they do deserve another shot versus Alabama but Texas deserves a shot in the Sugar Bowl,too.

Rose Bowl:Washington (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Ohio State (Big 10 First Bid)
Sugar Bowl:Texas (Big 12 First Bid) vs. Georgia (SEC First Bid)
Fiesta Bowl:Washington State (Pac-12 First Bid) vs. Michigan (Big 10 Second Bid)
Peach Bowl:UCF (American First Bid) vs. Florida (SEC Second Bid)

Who is still wondering about getting into the playoff?

Definitley In
Alabama
Clemson
Notre Dame

Wondering (Good Shot)
Oklahoma-After avenging a regular season loss to Texas,Oklahoma should be the team in because of winning their conference championship.
Ohio State-Northwestern kept it close until the final ten minutes of the game,and their resume is not as good as Oklahoma’s.
Georgia-Georgia should’ve beat Alabama and in my opinion,after Oklahoma,they have the best chance to land the number four spot.

Wondering (Maybe not so good of a chance)
Central Florida-UCF came back in the American Championship to get twenty-five wins in a row but it won’t be enough.

Michigan-Since Clemson,Oklahoma,and Ohio State all didn’t lose they won’t be getting in the CFP after an 11-1 season.

College Football Week 3 Review:Ohio State uses second half surge to beat TCU

Ohio State defeated TCU in Arlington,Texas 40-28 Saturday night.

Oklahoma and Notre Dame beat inferior opponents,Iowa State and Vanderbilt respectively by ten points or less.Oklahoma State surprised some people and defeated Boise State,getting them out of any Playoff discussion.Most notably in the SEC,Alabama crushed Ole Miss,62-7,but LSU stunned Auburn on the Plains,with a last second field goal to win,22-21.Most games were top teams against inferior opponents,like Clemson defeating Georgia Southern,and Georgia defeating Middle Tennessee.Wisconsin was upset by BYU.Oh yeah,I forgot to say,Texas defeated USC.
