Highlights from Week 13: Despite no changes in my top 5, the playoff picture became much clearer. Upsets in the ACC or SEC championship games this week could untidy the bracket, but for now it is simple: Oklahoma is in, Alabama and Clemson win and they’re in, and the Big Ten champion is in.

ACC: Clemson hangs on to beat in-state rival South Carolina and will retain their playoff seeding with a win over North Carolina this week.

B1G: Ohio State finally woke up after sleepwalking through their regular season to earn their first win over a ranked opponent. Too little, too late, as Iowa will face Michigan State in Indianapolis this week for a spot in the CFP.

Big XII: Oklahoma makes a statement that they belong in the CFP after blasting Oklahoma State on the road.

PAC12: Stanford ended Notre Dame’s playoff hopes on a last second field goal and now get a rematch with USC to keep their ultra-slim playoff hopes alive. The Cardinal won the first round with the Trojans back in September.

SEC: Florida gets clobbered at home, but can still play spoiler to Alabama this week in Atlanta.

Prediction for CFP top 4: Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma, Iowa. Stanford should move up to the top 7, along with Michigan State and Ohio State. The committee would have a tough decision to make if one of Alabama/Clemson lose; setting up well for the Big Ten to get two bids. A Stanford win would make for a tough decision between the 1-loss Buckeyes and 2-loss PAC12 champ.
