ESPN experts update College Football Playoff picks following Week 11 action
If you enjoy debating the College Football Playoff’s fourth team, you’re in luck. Judging by the latest from ESPN’s experts, there isn’t a clear No. 4.
Heading into Week 11, ESPN’s 14 college football experts were at a near consensus that the field of four was LSU, Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State. (The selection committee, obviously, did not agree.)
After the results of Saturday’s Alabama-LSU and Penn State-Minnesota games, all agree that three teams are currently “in” (LSU, Clemson and Ohio State). Five teams, however, are receiving votes for the fourth spot.
The experts are divided on whether Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Minnesota or Oregon deserves the final spot. Alabama is the most popular team of the five, showing up on 7-of-14 ballots.
It’s safe to say that all eyes will be on the No. 4 spot come Tuesday night.
