Alabama finds themselves on the outside looking when it comes to the College Football Playoff this season. Everyone had them penciled in until Auburn shocked college football with a win in the Iron Bowl. Now there are many scenarios where The Crimson Tide could be out of the College Football Playoffs even with just one loss. What team could be the one that unseats Alabama? None other than the Ohio State Buckeyes. Are these the same Buckeyes with two bad losses, yep the same ones.
Ohio State could make a strong case for making the playoffs with a Big Ten Championship. All the Buckeyes need to do is beat undefeated Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game. The way Ohio State is playing this is a good possibility. There are no guarantees for the Buckeyes, but the committee does love Conference Champions which Ohio State would be with a win.
The perfect scenario for The Crimson Tide is an Ohio State Loss which would help their case for the College Football Playoff. If the Buckeyes win Alabama could be eliminated from the playoff after a great season. This is why we need to add more teams to this playoff format. No matter how this ends up someone will not be very happy.
