Who should we be rooting for?

An SEC will get into the playoffs, LSU is the favorite and we should encourage to keep it that way. We need LSU to run away with it.
LSU beats Georgia bad
Auburn beats Alabama
Utah beats Oregon.

Those three things could happen and might get Utah in the back door.

Right, one SEC team will get in the playoffs for sure. You proposed that if LSU loses to Arkansas two SEC teams are more likely to get in. I don’t think so. An LSU loss before the SEC Championship means they must win the Championship to make the playoff. There is no way a two-loss LSU team is going.

Stranger things have happened. If 1 SEC team is guaranteed in the best idea is to make it most obvious, hence LSU. When you start throwing in Georgia and Alabama with LSU it isn’t as clear and the Playoff committee tends to favor the SEC. They’ve gotten two teams in before.

Hell, Florida is still in the talks at 9-2. All I’m saying is if LSU runs the table and is the clear favorite, the selection is much easier for the committee.

As a Ute fan from Louisiana one should always root for LSU to win but in the situation in the CFP as it stands today if you want only one SEC team in the playoffs the best thing you can root for is LSU to stay undefeated. I would say the same thing about Ohio as there is a possibility they get two Big10 in though unlikely. Other than that Utes win out they are in. Clemson loses any game they drop out of top 10… Change My Mind. :smile:

Best (and most likely) scenario seems to be: Utah, LSU, Ohio State, and Clemson win out. Oklahoma and Baylor each pick up a second loss. These all happen and the Utes are in the playoffs.

A Clemson loss would also help but that is very unlikely. Their remaining games are at 4-7 So. Carolina, and a CGG likely vs a 3 loss Virginia.

So who do we root for today?

Utah
LSU
Ohio State
TCU
Texas

Clemson is off today.

Texas A&M should be on that list. Get Georgia out of the discussion.

Do we have to root for Texas?

No. Never root for Texas.

That game doesn’t really matter. What DOES matter is that LSU run the table, including a win over Georgia in their CCG. If Georgia upsets LSU in the CCG, it could shut the Utes out of the playoffs.

Good to get Pen State out of the discussion, but otherwise a disappointing day for upsets. Was hoping A&M could topple Georgia.
