It’s fair to say that the SEC Championship game is one of the most consequential for the College Football Playoff. If Georgia wins, it will undoubtedly reach the Playoff, but Alabama needs a win and some help from around the country to get into the Playoff.
The only other conference championship game being played between two Playoff contenders is the Pac-12 Championship between Washington and Oregon in Las Vegas on Friday. If Oregon can avenge its loss to the undefeated Huskies, the Ducks would very likely find themselves in the Playoff.
Florida State can’t afford a slip up in the ACC Championship against Louisville on Saturday if it wants to reach the Playoff — same is the case for Michigan in the Big Ten Championship against Iowa.
Texas, like Alabama, needs a big win over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Championship along with some help elsewhere to reach the Playoff.
