      Right now, showing our quality wins as ASU and @Washington (obvious Oregon could be added to that list after Friday).

      Would be interesting if Cougars had beaten USF, Toledo, and SDSU as they would then be in that list.

        ASU and UW are probably ranked without their stupid losses to OSU and Colorado, respectively.

      I thought it was also significant that they kept Oklahoma State in the rankings at 25. For the whole “wins over ranked teams” argument

        Maybe USC at #22 offsets that?!

            Right, but it also means that Oklahoma has a worse loss. I’m splitting hairs at this point. Beat Oregon convincingly, and none of this will matter.

      Feels like Rose Bowl with a win over Oregon. A possible blowout win over Oregon and Utah is in the CFP. Obviously moot if Georgia doesn’t lose.

      Mullen (CFP committee head) said that the most vigorous debate was between Utah and Oklahoma.

        Does Oklahoma being in there before and Utah not being in CFP yet (and not given chance back in 2004/08 at all) help Sooners or Utes more?

          I was thinking the same thing. Oklahoma beat a ranked Oklahoma St and still didn’t jump us. Maybe there is Oklahoma fatigue.

        This is why more teams are better. The most controversy is going to be at the cutoff. At 64 teams, March madness never gets accused of excluding a viable champion. 8 would be better than 4, and sixteen is what the other football leagues do. I would love to have a 64 team league of 14 team divisions and a national championship of 8 with top two finishers from each division, with relegation a la premier league for lesser teams that outperform. The current system is so GD old boy focused.

        I think a convincing win puts us in the Rose Bowl. Everything else is beyond control.

        Seems that way to me. The placement of Baylor at no. 7, says to me if they beat OU soundly they leapfrog us. Utah hopefully can put up a big win.

        I can’t follow this gloomy outlook given the committee’s rankings this week. If they wanted to have Oklahoma jump us why didn’t they do exactly that? Oklahoma just beat a ranked OSU on the road while we beat a 5-7 team at home yet they didn’t jump us this week. Why would they jump us if we both beat ranked teams and win our conferences? Where’s the major change that would cause a complete reversal of their current rankings?

          Dramatic effect?  Keep the discussion going one more week. Then the big reveal. CFP are smart.

            You honestly think ranking Oklahoma ahead of Utah now as opposed to next week would decrease the drama and conversation?

      Kinda surprised that OK didn’t jump us. Here is how I see this playing out: if all things are equal (both UT and OK wins and all things being equal – neither victory stands out over the other) then OK will likely jump us for that 4th spot. 

      If Baylor beats OK – because we are ahead of OK currently, unlikely that Baylor would then jump us and we are the 4th team. 

      Root your ass off for Baylor. And LSU of course. And maybe hail mary for Virginia on top.

          Assuming LSU beats GA:
          1. Win big, we’re in.
          2. Close Utah win, close OK or Bay win, we’re in.
          3. Close Utah win, big Baylor win, we’re probably still in.
          4. Close Utah win, big OK win, we’re probably out.

          They said the most debate was around utah ou. Theres 13 members. That tells me theres at least 7 strongly in utahs camp if they win out and look good. That majority wont waver.

      I think it comes down to our dominant defense. I think that is the differentiator. They’ve seen Utah dominate since USC, our defense is right there with OSU and Clemson’s. If we give up 30 points, I think we are in trouble, if we keep Oregon below 20 and win by 10+, I think we are in the playoff (assuming the top-3 all win).

      Here is why we are ranked above Oklahoma and why we will continue to be if we beat Oregon. OK was rollin’ strong until the K-St loss. Struggled with TCU and ISU while we continued to pummel the hell out of people.
      vs HOU W49-31
      vs SDAK W70-14
      @ UCLA W48-14
      vs TTU W55-16
      @ KU W45-20
      vs 11 TEX W34-27
      vs WVU W52-14
      @ KSU L48-41
      vs ISU W42-41
      @ 13 BAY W34-31
      vs TCU W28-24
      @ 21 OKST W34-16
