Alabama, Texas Put College Football Playoff in Flux
It was a Saturday of upsets in college football as the landscape for the College Football Playoff is likely going to see a seismic shift that is bound to irate people for weeks, months and possibly years to come.
On Friday everyone thought Georgia, Washington, Florida State and Michigan would be the Final Four. Now it might very well be Michigan, Washington, Alabama and Texas.
The Alabama Crimson Tide were not expected to win the SEC this year. But, after a 27-24 victory over Georgia on Saturday afternoon down in Atlanta, the Tide are not only champions of the SEC, but they might now have a path to the playoff. Something nobody thought was possible earlier in the year.
On top of that Texas thoroughly dominated the Oklahoma State Cowboys 49-21, while 13-0 Florida State struggled to beat out Louisville 16-6.
Now there is legit question whether Texas will upend FSU from the final voting to sneak into the College Football Playoff.
Texas dominated OSU 49-21. Will it be enough to get the Longhorns in? Head Coach Steve Sarkisian says his team will play anybody if it gets in.
Nick Saban: “We beat the team the committee said was the best team. If you want the four best teams in the playoff, our team deserves to be one of those teams.”
Michigan Dominates Iowa
The Wolverines dominated Iowa 26-0. It was heck of a showing for Jim Harbaugh and crew to put the scandals behind them and enjoy a third straight Big Ten title.
Florida State is unbeaten
The Seminoles are 13-0, despite losing their starting quarterback for the year. Their defense carried them to a 16-6 win over Lousiville.
We will know on Sunday.
