Normally, a win by Auburn over No. 1 Georgia would have been good for Alabama no matter what happened in the Iron Bowl. Those three wins - plus a conference championship - would all be better than anything that current No. 5 Alabama has accomplished. That's your current top four. Alabama's nine Power Five victims are 53-54 this season, set against numbers such as that of Clemson (a marvelous 67-39), Auburn (54-30, with just seven Power Five victims but two top-tier ones in Georgia and Alabama), Oklahoma (57-51) and Georgia (57-49).
Each of the top four teams plays a conference title game this Saturday against another highly ranked team, creating potential play-in playoff games. The Buckeyes' two losses would be against playoff-bound Oklahoma and an embarrassing, inexplicable dud at Iowa, compared with wins over bowl teams Army, Penn State, Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin.
Alabama football needs help to make the Playoff field for the fourth straight season. Auburn beating Georgia to reach the playoff would boost Bama's case for a No. 4 spot in this scenario. Clemson faces Miami in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship; Auburn and Georgia play for the Southeastern Conference title; Wisconsin faces Ohio State for the Big Ten title; and Oklahoma faces No. 11 TCU for the Big 12 title. A win by TCU may not have a similar outcome, however, and the Horned Frogs may be lined up for a spot in the Fiesta Bowl as the Big 12 champion to take on the Pac-12 champion. The Sooners and Buckeyes would both be 11-2 with a loss to a top-10 team and a loss to a 7-5 team.
The possibility of Clemson losing to Miami but getting into the playoff anyway is on the table.
No. 5 Alabama will sit home and watch this weekend, as will No. 9 Penn State.
