Stanford is going to be a very, very good team that sits out of the Playoff this year. It hurts, but I can't really argue that much against keeping them out with two losses. Every week is the playoffs in college football and you gotta take care of business. Really interested in seeing how they come out against Iowa in the Rose Bowl.
6. Ohio State
8. Notre Dame
9. Oklahoma State
12. North Carolina
13. Florida State
The Utes stumbled down the stretch, but their overall resume isn't bad with wins over Michigan and Oregon and just three losses. They deserve credit for what they were able to do earlier in the season.
The Ducks are still red hot, but their god awful defense did show back up in The Civil War. They have a chance to make a major statement to close the season in the Alamo Bowl against TCU.
