College Football Playoff picks: ESPN reporters update their projections after Week 11
College Football Playoff top 4 teams are beginning to crystalize, but after Week 11, there was minimal movement for most people who project the top 4 in the CFP.
Washington knocking off Oregon was the most significant news of Saturday since it handed the Ducks a second loss.
TCU leaned on a strong defense to smother Texas and win, 17-10. It was the Longhorns’ first shutout in a first half at home since 1997. Longhorns’ QB Quinn Ewers struggled, and the Horned Frogs also clinched a spot in the Big 12 title game.
ESPN reporters came out with their latest top 4, and 3 teams are unanimous, according to the panel, in Georgia, Ohio State and TCU. Ryan McGee included Tennessee in his top 4, while the other 14 panelists had Michigan as the fourth team. Of course, the Big Ten representatives will be sorted out Nov. 26 in Columbus, when the Wolverines meet the Buckeyes.
On Saturday, Georgia, Ohio State and Michigan all coasted to victories.
