ESPN updates Playoff Predictor for SEC's 4 undefeated teams
There was some movement in the College Football Playoff outlook through the eyes of ESPN following Week 6 action as the SEC lost an undefeated team, but plenty of contenders remain.
Ohio State remains at the top with a 74 percent chance of making the Playoff, according to the Playoff Predictor, with Alabama holding a 69 percent chance, and Clemson third at 65 percent.
Four undefeated teams from the SEC remain, including Georgia at 46 percent, LSU at 31 percent, and Florida at 8 percent. Auburn dropped out of the top 10 following its loss at Florida.
Ohio State’s top remaining games appear to be against Wisconsin in three weeks, before Penn State and at Michigan the final two weeks of the season. Oklahoma may have its toughest test this week against Texas in Dallas, but the Sooners also close at Oklahoma State on Nov. 30.
The SEC games to shake up the CFP on tap are well-documented, including Auburn at LSU on Oct. 26, Georgia and Florida in Jacksonville on Nov. 2, LSU at Alabama on Nov. 9, Georgia at Auburn on Nov. 16 and, of course, the Iron Bowl on Nov. 30.
