The Associated Press has a story up today about how ESPN’s College Football Playoff semifinal will unfold.
We’ve got our pick of the top 16 teams to win it all, with the College Football Playoffs now officially on.
Here’s what to know:Who are the top teams?
It’s time to start figuring out who’s the best team in college football.
And that begins with this chart:Here’s the Top 16 teams, according to ESPN’s college football playoff selection committee, ranked by their odds to win:1.
Oklahoma State (1.5): The Cowboys have an 8.7 percent chance of winning the National Title, according a new ESPN article.
Oklahoma’s run at the National title has been anything but smooth, however.
The Cowboys went 3-9 in 2016 and are on the brink of dropping out of the Playoff entirely.2.
Baylor (2.0): The Bears are still a playoff contender.
The Bears have an 11.2 percent chance to win this year’s National Championship.
That’s a huge improvement from their 11.9 percent chance in 2015.3.
Ohio State (2:35): The Buckeyes are looking like they’ve finally found their identity in the Big Ten.
The Buckeye offense will make for a huge difference this season.4.
Virginia Tech (3.2): Virginia Tech has a chance to finish in the Top 8.
The Hokies are on a 10.8 percent chance, but they’re a team that can make the Playoff if they’re healthy.5.
Texas Tech (5.1): The Red Raiders have a big chance to make it to the Playoff.
The Red Raider offense will be the difference in the matchup between the top two teams in the West.6.
Alabama (7.4): Alabama has an 8 percent chance at making the National Final.
The Crimson Tide’s success has been based largely on its defense.
The offense, though, is still young.
If they can get back to where they were, they could take the crown.7.
Clemson (9.4)The Tigers are one of the more talented teams in college basketball right now.
They’re loaded with talent, but also a bit of an unknown.
If Clemson can make it past Clemson and Alabama in the final four, the Tigers could win it.8.
Washington State (11.3): Washington State has a 9.2 percentage chance to get into the Playoff and make it.
The Cougars offense will take care of business this season, too.9.
Notre Dame (12.6): The Fighting Irish have a chance at a big win this season thanks to their defense and offense.
But the Fighting Irish offense will need a big performance from quarterback Malik Zaire to beat the other teams in contention.10.
Texas A&M (14.1)The Aggies offense is pretty explosive.
However, they’re also young.
They’ll need to find a way to get the ball out to their true freshman running back, Jordan Scarlett.11.
Notreville (15.3) The Fighting Illini have a lot of young talent, and it will be interesting to see how they respond to the team’s new coaching staff.12.
Miami (15:45) The Hurricanes will be back on the schedule this season after playing in the Bahamas.
That means the schedule will be tougher for them, but it’ll also mean the ACC will be tough to beat.13.
Auburn (17.1), Georgia Tech (17:45), Oregon (18:30), Louisville (19:00) The Orangebloods offense will give way to the Georgia Tech and Louisville defenses.
They have a 12.2 and 11.8 percentage chance of making it to this year.14.
Notre Miss (19.0) The Irish are one more team that’s been hurt by injuries, but their offense will finally be back to its best.15.
South Carolina (20.1, ESPN) South Carolina has the most potential to make the College Basketball Playoff this season with a 13.6 percent chance.
However in the first round, the Gamecocks will face the Gamecock team that has been one of their toughest opponents in the past couple of years.16.
UCLA (20:45, ESPN2) UCLA has the second-highest chance to go to the Final Four.
The Bruins defense will make up for that by being one of our favorites to make a run at it.17.
LSU (21:15), Arizona State (22:00), Clemson (22.15), Auburn (22
