    If Florida beats Bama in Atlanta, Notre Dame is out if they don’t beat Clemson.

    If that happens and the rest is chalk, we're looking at Ohio State, Florida, Clemson, and then an argument between Bama and Notre Dame.

    You're right, ND would be rightfully left out.

    Lol BYU coach refuses to say why they won’t play UW. If he had a reason he would state it on the biggest stage.

    I truly doubt 9-1 Texas A&M would get in over 11-1 Clemson or 11-1 ND if they split

    they need ND to beat Clemson again

    even then there is still the Oregon/USC and Cincy scenarios to consider

    i am not talking about bama, florida would have a worse loss than Nd against am and a slightly better win. It would make no sense.

    but it would probably happen...

    It would probably come down to a best resume vs most recent loss discussion. It would be an absolute travesty for them to backdoor in. My money would be on it happening because people are dumb.

    But this is why BYU didn't commit to this game. Because they would have spent a lot of money to be just told no

    The article I’d read, which actually detailed everything quite succinctly, was that this was a stunt from the PAC to make BYU look bad, in order to push the argument for UO being ahead of them. This isn’t the exact one, but highlights a lot of what’s going on.

    Oh 100%. It’s exactly what they did. Then they dragged BYU name through the mud. Especially former SI Stewart Mandel.

    BYU wanted 100% confirmation on the game and the Pac 12 couldn’t do it because according to their Covid rules, they can change a game until Thursday. It didn’t make financial sense for BYU to make the arrangements knowing the Pac 12 would do it.

    I think they are in if they win out, bama wins out and either ND wins again against Clemson or Clemson wins big. I think its pretty possible, but not THAT likely. Of course Ohio State losing to

    im not even gonna bother finishing that sentence

    Would you put an 8-1 A&M that didn’t win their division in the playoffs over 7-0 PAC 12 Champ Oregon with only two ranked wins (UW & Southern Cal)?

    would sort of depend on how oregon starts winning their games and how aTm does. Id say odds are that Oregon is in when they win out but i dont think its a certainty. Also not convinced that oregon will in fact win out

    Notre Dame has lost to Northwestern in 2 of their last 3 meetings.

    Notre Dame hasn't beaten Ohio State in 84 years.

    That seems like that would be a bad grouping for the Irish.

    With them starting at 15 in the initial Playoff rankings, it was an uphill battle anyway.
