Foremost pollster likes Alabama and OK with Big 12 team
Clemson has the best chance to make the College Football Playoff, according to Nate Silver and FiveThirtyEight.
The Tigers have a 68-percent chance, followed by Alabama at 63 percent and Ohio State at 62 percent. The Tigers can complete an unbeaten season by beating Wake Forest, South Carolina and probably North Carolina (the Tar Heels can clinch today) in the ACC title game.

The Crimson Tide (9-1) plays Charleston Southern and Auburn to finish the regular season. If the Tide wins both, it will play Florida in the SEC Championship Game. Ohio State (10-0) plays Michigan State today and Michigan next Saturday. By winning both, the Buckeyes would play Iowa in the Big Ten Championship Game.
Oklahoma has the fourth-best odds at 45 percent, meaning FiveThirtyEight expects the Sooners to win at unbeaten Oklahoma State next Saturday.
