Auburn, LSU and Florida fans: Are you thinking about the College Football Playoff?
CBS Sports’ Jon Solomon says you could be.
On Monday, Solomon presented a ranking of his top under-the-radar candidates for the College Football Playoff. He made cases for Auburn, LSU and Florida among the 10 teams mentioned. Auburn was ranked second overall among the candidates, followed by LSU (No. 3) and Florida (No. 5). Wisconsin topped the list.
Be sure to give Solomon’s post a read to see his full explanations for each team. It’s not out of the question to see either Auburn, LSU or Florida make a run to a College Football Playoff berth. Auburn, in particular, is an interesting case. If the Tigers win out, their resume will include a victory over Alabama, which would be impressive.
The respective paths for LSU and Florida seem rockier. But both teams can make compelling cases by running the table.
Keep those dreams alive.
