Auburn lost to No. 1 Clemson and No. 17 LSU on the road, but it owns double-digit wins over No. 5 Alabama and No. 6 Georgia that are far superior to anything that Wisconsin has accomplished. MSU (9-3, 7-2 Big Ten) finished its regular season with a 40-7 win over Rutgers on Saturday.

The wild card is Ohio State. That said, if one of those teams does slip up, then the Crimson Tide will be sitting in that No. 5 spot in the rankings waiting to stake their claim to move up into the Top 4.

Each of the top four teams plays a conference title game this Saturday against another highly ranked team, creating potential play-in playoff games. In the coming weekend, Clemson will play Miami in the ACC championship, Auburn will play Georgia in the Southeastern Conference championship, and Wisconsin and Oklahoma will play top-10 opponents, Ohio State and TCU, respectively, in the Big Ten and Big 12 championships. Miami gets a shot at No. 1 Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. It needs either No. 3 Oklahoma or No. 4 Wisconsin to lose to have a chance.

The Tigers (11-1) are coming off a 34-10 win over rival SC.

At No. 2, Auburn makes its debut in the top four after knocking off its second top-ranked team of the season. The Trojans square off with No. 12 Stanford for the conference championship on Friday night in Palo Alto.

The weekly hype video produced by the Buckeyes video team never disappoints, but they save their best stuff for the biggest matchups. For those who want to try to read between the lines, Hocutt mentioned conference titles a few times Tuesday night.

The possibility of Clemson losing to Miami but getting into the playoff anyway is on the table. Oklahoma State (9-3), 20. Auburn beating Georgia to reach the playoff would boost Bama's case for a No. 4 spot in this scenario. "Certainly not maybe in this game, but I think the team we played tonight is a very good football team - probably one of the best teams in the country". The Tigers might have some cushion.
