College Football Playoff Pool

Updated through November 27, 2017

Every week we update our pool of teams that is still in the running for the College Football Playoff. We organize teams into four groups of teams based on the priority they are likely to receive from the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Group 1
Undefeated teams from Power 5 conferences

Group 2
One-loss teams from Power 5 conferences

Group 3
Any team or conference champion with two or more losses from a Power 5 conference or, possibly, a one-loss team from a Group of 5 conference that may warrant consideration under unique circumstances (e.g., a two-loss SEC champion). These teams won’t be listed until it becomes apparent that they may have an opportunity to make the College Football Playoff field based on whether there are enough Group 1 and/or Group 2 teams.

Group 4
Undefeated teams from Group of 5 conferences
