Let's say Clemson locks up its playoff spot by cruising past Virginia in the ACC championship game, Utah beats No. 13 OR in the Pac-12 championship game and the Big 12 game is a one-score game between Oklahoma and Baylor. But when these two teams met earlier this season, it was hardly a contest with Ohio State winning, 38-7, and a second win against the Badgers this season would hand the Buckeyes their third consecutive conference championship.
The SEC Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta pits No. 2 LSU against No. 4 Georgia, a nice preview of the kind of matchups the College Football Playoff semifinals will present December 28 in the Fiesta Bowl and Peach Bowl.
Who gets left out?
Utah may have been in the conversation for the playoff, but they were nowhere near close to the level of Ohio State, LSU and Clemson.
If Ohio State handily beats Wisconsin, the Nittany Lions could be headed to Pasadena to play in the Rose Bowl. The Sooners are the higher guess to drag this off, however an entire, dominant efficiency from both crew would probably be sufficient to bump the Pac-12 champion out of the combination.
Heading into Week 15, the top seven teams in the College Football Playoff ranking are still in contention. With that also contemporary in thoughts, Oklahoma or Baylor blows the opposite out within the Saturday midday slot.

These two sure seem pretty cozy, don't they?! "No validity to any other rumour other than that they are filming together". At one point, Justin held onto Wainwright's hand as he laughed among what appeared to be cast and crew from the flick.
"At the end of the day nobody wants to hear excuses, you've got to go out and make plays", said Utah receivers coach Guy Holliday said in an interview. The latter happening would decrease the importance of conference title games, which have been emphasized as a key component of a team's playoff resume. We still think Ohio State would get in no matter what.
Utah's non-conference schedule was non-existent.
The decision was made and it was a relatively unsurprising one as the crew chose to pick the highest-ranked matchup between two teams fighting for a playoff spot: the SEC title game. There's a decent chance Clemson would get left out because they wouldn't have a conference championship in the relatively weak ACC.
The last meeting between the two schools, on November 10, 2018, resulted in a 32-25 victory for Utah, with the Utes handicapped at present as the 6.5-point favorite to win this match-up.
STREAK STATS: Penn State has won its last four home games, scoring an average of 82.8 points while giving up 59. How large is the difference between what LSU and Ohio State has accomplished?
