Alabama checked in at No. 1 in the AP Poll, while Georgia is close behind at No. 3 (with Clemson at No. 2).
It’s quite impressive that Alabama and Clemson are both more likely to make the Playoff than miss it, which speaks to their dominance over the years. Georgia could soon join those ranks with another big year in 2018.
