College football playoff pick after conference championship week – .


In the last edition of the playoff picks ahead of the college football playoff pitch announcement, we had a lot of upheaval and change.

Alabama and Georgia finally met in the SEC title game after a season of anticipation. The game itself did not live up to the hype as the Crimson Tide went up two scores in the third quarter and never looked back in a 41-24 rout. The resounding victory propelled Alabama to first place on 10 ballots this week. Georgia had been the unanimous No.1 pick every week since the Tide fell to Texas A&M at the start of the season.

The Bulldogs have also been selected in each round of voting, but where they end up in the top four after the 17-point loss will be up to the playoff committee.

In what has been the story of the season, Cincinnati rode in the American Athletic Conference title game, 35-20, against Houston to end the season 13-0. The undefeated record, along with losses to Georgia and Oklahoma State, mean the Bearcats are likely to become the first team in the Group-5 to advance to the college football playoffs. That makes Cincinnati a unanimous selection this week.

The last game with playoff implications on Saturday was the Big Ten Championship, and Michigan quickly did the tilt work with Iowa to claim their place in the top four. The Wolverines rushed to a 14-3 halftime lead and ended up winning 42-3 to top a 12-1 record. Michigan was also selected on every ballot after the victory.

With the championship results on Saturday, the same four teams landed on each round of voting in varying order.
