MI left out of playoff, will face Florida State

"Our guys would have obviously loved to have been in the playoff", Penn State coach James Franklin said during an interview on the College Football Playoff selection show Sunday. The top 4 teams are No.1 Alabama, No.2 Clemson, No.3 Ohio State and No.4 Washington. Both teams are capable of producing an exciting and close game. Plus, outside of Alabama, USC is the team no one wants to play. You will also get my take on that as well.

The Buckeyes are the first team to reach the playoff in its three-year history without winning their conference.

North Carolina's up-tempo offense matches Stanford's plodding, traditional pro-style in the Sun Bowl on December 30. Before that, bowl games strictly decided the top-two games for the national championship. The freshman Hurts was 11 of 20 for 138 yards with a touchdown and was mostly a nonfactor as a runner. They're getting open but there's not breakaway, which is fine.

They'll do so against a team that's on a similar trajectory.

Not only did the Vols blow a chance to win the SEC East by losing to SC, but they blew a chance to back into the Sugar Bowl by losing to Vanderbilt. On the other side of the ball here's what needs to happen for Washington to win this game.

Friday night, Washington easily disposed of Washington State, 41-10, to win the Pac-12 championship. Let the defense do a lot of the damage bottom line.

But what if college football expanded to a 16-team bracket? The 1978 Gator Bowl. Clemson has the best Quarterback in the ACC and in the country.

Clemson: QB Deshaun Watson. Clemson won the 1978 Gator Bowl over the Buckeyes 17-15 in Woody Hayes' last game as Buckeyes coach. The Buckeyes are led by quarterback J.T. Barrett, who terrorizes defenses in a variety of ways. You go out there to win games, play your best. That's no easy task in itself.

The Wolverines went 10-2, losing two of their last three to Iowa and Ohio State. They can't play like they did against Michigan State and Michigan if they do they will lose Big time. It will be the last game for Jim Grobe, Baylor's acting head coach who took over on short notice after Art Briles was sacked in the summer.

USC, which like Penn State turned its season around after a sluggish September under first-year coach Clay Helton, is 9-3 and the only team that has beaten Washington.

No one doubts the sincerity or the diligence that the committee puts into the selection process. Penn State played Pitt, Temple and Kent State out of conference. One of them was to win a national championship. But they have 2 loses.

Several times, Hocutt cited Penn State's noncompetitive loss and Ohio State's strong nonconference victory at Oklahoma. Did the committee get it right?

Without a conference or division title, the Ohio State Buckeyes learned during their "bye week" that they are one of the four best teams in the country. "We're just going to keep pushing forward".

Hancock said expansion of the playoff is not up for consideration by the conference commissioners. In that game, the No. 5 Trojans defeated the No. 6 Nittany Lions, 38-24, behind a four touchdown and 413-yard performance from USC's Mark Sanchez.
