f TCU wins: The Horned Frogs and the Big 12

probably would be snubbed again. The league's championship game was brought back for the sole purpose of increasing its chances of having a top-four team, but it could achieve the opposite effect and eliminate it entirely. Men'sChicagoBlackhawks#2DuncanKeithReebokCamoPremierVeteransDayPracticeNHLJerseyThe committee doesn't even think TCU is a top-10 team, let alone anywhere near the bubble. It's highly unlikely that perception will change with a win over Oklahoma, even though it would avenge one of TCU's regular-season losses. The Horned Frogs also lost to Iowa State and their only regular-season win against a ranked opponent was at No. 19 Oklahoma State. That doesn't stack up against the other contenders' résumés. NikeCincinnatiBengalsWomen'sLegendLogoDri-FITNFLT-Shirt-DarkGreyIf Oklahoma wins: The Sooners should be in and the resurrected Big 12 championship game works in the league's favor. OU is ranked No. 1 in the country in offensive efficiency, and has the  leading Heisman hopeful in quarterback Baker Mayfield. Rooting interest: Alabama should be rooting for TCU, which is the Tide's best-case scenario for getting back into the top four. While it would also help Ohio State to have another top-four team go down, don't forget the Buckeyes lost at home to Oklahoma and the committee Adam Oates Jersey compares common opponents. It might be more beneficial for Ohio State to be able to claim at least one of its losses came to the eventual Big 12 champ. If Miami wins: The Canes should leap back into the top four with a win over the No. 1 team in the country. The question is if a two-loss Clemson that didn't win its conference title would be eliminated. It probably would. The committee dropped Georgia from No. 1 to No. 7 after it lost to Auburn. It dropped Alabama from No. 1 to No. 5 this week after its loss to Auburn. Odds are it would do the same for Clemson, unless wins Christian Okoye Authentic Jersey by TCU and Ohio State change that equation. If Clemson wins: The Tigers should finish the season as the committee's No. 1 team, and knock the Canes out for good. Clemson currently has seven wins against teams above .500, including five opponents with at least eight wins. Adding a top-10 win to its résumé should secure the top spot. Rooting interest: This game isn't going to make any room for anyone, as the winner should be a lock, but Ohio State  and Alabama should root for Clemson just to be safe and sure that two ACC teams aren't getting in. If Georgia wins: The Bulldogs should finish in the top four after avenging their Nov. 11 regular-season loss to Auburn, eliminating what could have been the first two-loss team in the CFP semifinals, unless, of course, Ohio State sneaks in. Georgia is one of three teams to be ranked in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency, along with Clemson and Alabama. f Auburn wins: The Tigers become the first two-loss team in the CFP semifinals after beating a top-10 Everson Griffen Womens Jersey Georgia team for the second time. Rooting interest: If Alabama and its fans can somehow bring themselves to root for their rival, an Auburn win would mean, that at the very least, Alabama could say it's only loss was to the SEC champs. Memphis wins: It would earn the New Year's Six bowl bid as the committee's highest-ranked Group of  Five conference champion. If UCF wins: Same Justin Schultz Womens Jersey as the Tigers, it's about earning a bid to a New Year's Six bowl, but there's a greater, perhaps more frustrating, significance if UCF finishes the season undefeated. The Knights moved up only one place in this week's rankings and Hocutt has stated repeatedly that strength of schedule is holding them back. According to FPI, UCF's schedule strength is ranked No. 90, lowest among top 25 teams.
