It all comes down to whether or not OSU with 3 better wins than any bama win and 2 losses is comparable to bama with 1 loss.   If it is, OSU is in on written tiebreaker criteria (conf champ, sos).

The flip side is just saying the okl and aub losses cancel, the iowa loss makes us not comparable, bama in

I think wins over 4, 9, 16  and 2 losses is at a minimum comparable to wins over 17, 23 and 1 loss.

Neither team deserves to get in, but one has to if OSU wins.  That being said, I don't think this Bama team is the one they are going to break precedent of 1 per conference with.  OSU got in last year because of the Oklahoma win and the perception that PSU was a fluke loss.   Bama doesn't have an Oklahoma win and that game last night was not a fluke.

What I think is going to happen:

Bama, Clemson, Oklahoma win out.

Committee has to pick between OSU (2 loss champ), USC (2 loss champ), Miami (1 loss runner up)

We may get screwed by 31-0 last year and not get the backdoor invite two years in a row.    I think our resume stacks up fine against those other two teams, but they may give one of them a chance over us due to last year.

Which is why another USC and Clemson loss (even if to Miami) would make us the obvious choice.  2 loss champ > 2 loss runner up or 3 loss team.

I like this  prediction.   basically a head to head with two loss usc, one loss miami, and two loss ga.  guves us a 50-50 chance.  if you change to tcu winning out instead of okl, we go up to 77%.

bama winning out is key.

This is the most accurate post. To all the "we don't deserve it" fans: I agree, but who cares. If we sneak in, we have an extra month to prepare. We have as much talent as any team in the nation. I'd love to see them take a shot.

Teams that control their own destiny:

Bama-Auburn-Georgia - I think only 1 gets in

Clemson-Miami - maybe two gets in if they value a 1 loss Miami over a 2 loss big 10 champ

Wisconsin

Oklahoma

Nobody else controls their own.

Mullen definitely played not to lose.  You have to go for it on 4th and 3 from the 4 yard line instead of punting it into the endzone.  Bama was back to the 40 in 2 plays.

Comment 04 Dec 2016

it already has.  The committee has stated 100 times that it's a tiebreaker and simply another opportunity to add another big win.

As far as the Big goes, I vote for make the tiebreaker highest ranked in the  CFP.  If Oklahoma had finished with one loss the Big might have been shut out this year ( 1 loss non champ OSU and 2 loss champ PSU)  bama-clemson-oklahoma-washington in that scenario.
