The college football playoff picture is still very much in flux. Before the 2019 conference championship games, you have LSU #1, Ohio State #2, Clemson #3 and Georgia #4. For the first time in forever Alabama is not even in the top 5, unfortunately as Tua is out for the year.
So for everyone not wanting to see yet another Alabama vs whoever title game (like me) you get your wish.
The top 3 teams in the nation are undefeated and their ranking make perfect sense. But we have a great opportunity to see massive shake up depending upon how the conference championship games go. These are easily the top 3 best championship games to me, with a ton on the line for all 6 teams:
Big 12: Baylor vs. Oklahoma
SEC: Georgia vs. LSU
Big Ten: Ohio St. vs. Wisconsin
Right now Baylor is 11-1 and ranked #8. Oklahoma is #6, also at 11-1. IF the cards fall right, the winner of this game could be in the final four. Especially if Georgia loses to LSU. But if Georgia wins, LSU won't fall out of the top 4 (I don't think) and both will make it to the final four. And if Ohio State loses to #10 Wisconsin, they could conceivably fall to a 4th or 5th seed, if they get blown out. Not likely but still a lot on the line for them. 5 of this 6 teams could force their way into the final four. But I don't think Wisconsin can.
Here are the rest of the conf championship games. Any of these interest you? I'm curious to see how Clemson performs, but outside of that, I'm good.
Pac-12: Oregon vs. Utah
MAC: Miami (OH) vs. Central Michigan
Sun Belt: Louisiana vs. App. St.
Conf. USA: UAB vs. FAU
AAC: Cincinnati vs. Memphis
MWC: Hawaii vs. Boise St.
SWAC: Southern vs. Alcorn St.
ACC: Virginia vs. Clemson
Feel free to post the highlights from what turns out to be the best game of the championship round this year. I am most excited for the Baylor v Oklahoma game and would love to see Baylor sneak their way into a final four spot.
