ESPN updates Playoff Predictor after latest CFP Top 25
If the 2020 season ended today, then Alabama would be the lone SEC team in the College Football Playoff. However, there’s still time for things to change over the next few weeks.
The Crimson Tide remained No. 1 in the latest edition of the CFP rankings, which were released Tuesday night, while Texas A&M and Florida were the next highest-ranked SEC teams at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively. Notre Dame sits at No. 2, Clemson is No. 3 and Ohio State is No. 4.
ESPN also updated its Allstate Playoff Predictor with the latest odds for the top teams to reach this season’s College Football Playoff. And as expected, Alabama is currently in the best position to do so.
Here are the odds for the top teams to reach the CFP, per ESPN’s Playoff Predictor:
Alabama — 98%
Ohio State — 74%
Notre Dame — 54%
Clemson — 51%
Indiana — 37%
Texas A&M — 28%
Cincinnati — 27%
USC — 13%
Florida — 13%
Coastal Carolina — 2%
This makes zero sense. ESPN’s playoff predictor is quite broken. pic.twitter.com/qOThXDEC6z
