If Alabama beats Auburn and Georgia (favored in both)
If Ohio State beats Michigan and Wisconsin (favored in both)
Alabama and Ohio State would likely meet in the Playoffs
I know the playoff scenarios have been discussed plenty around here - and everywhere - but figured I'd share the thoughts of R.J Bell, Vegas odds extraordinaire and the person who provides the odds for The Associated Press. He was interviewed on Cowherd today, and said with the way the committee has been ranking teams that there is no doubt that if Ohio State and Alabama win out they will meet in the first semifinal.
Me? I'd love another crack at Saban. But for now, beat Illinois, beat Michigan, beat Wisky, and may the chips fall where they may.
