Updated through games played on 12/3/2016
Every week beginning with the first week of October, 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.
Undefeated teams from Power 5 conferences
One-loss teams from Power 5 conferences
Undefeated teams from Group of 5 conferences
Any two-loss teams 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.
