Four FBS teams will make the College Football Playoff and battle it out for a chance at a national championship at the end of the season. As of right now, half of them could potentially be SEC teams.
CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm released a projected CFP rankings on Tuesday morning. The selection committee won’t release the first actual playoff rankings until Nov. 1.
In Palm’s rankings, Alabama unsurprisingly holds the No. 1 spot. The Crimson Tide are 6-0 and have handled all their competition again this season as they look to defend their national title.
Texas A&M edged Michigan in these projections for the fourth and final spot in the College Football Playoff. The Aggies could move up if they remain undefeated and beat Alabama this Saturday.
As for other SEC teams in these projections, Tennessee is No. 8, Arkansas is No. 13, and Florida is No. 22.
