Power 5 match schedule for the conference title
The four playoff teams will almost certainly come from a Power 5 conference – Big Ten, Big 12, SEC, Pac 12 and ACC – much to the chagrin of two undefeated schools from smaller conferences, Cincinnati in the AAC and Coastal Carolina in the Sun Belt.
Here is the schedule of the title games from the Power 5 conference:
- Pac 12: Oregon vs. (13) USC, Friday, 8:00 PM ET on Fox
- Big Ten: (14) Northwestern vs. (4) Ohio State, Saturday, 12 p.m. ET on Fox
- Big 12: (10) Oklahoma vs. (6) Iowa State, Saturday, 12 p.m. ET on ABC
- ACC: (3) Clemson vs. (2) Notre Dame, Saturday, 4 p.m. ET on ABC
- SEC: (1) Alabama vs. (7) Florida, Saturday, 8:00 PM ET on CBS

The current College Football Playoff ranking is as follows:
- Alabama 10-0
- Notre Dame 10-0
- Clemson 9-1
- State of Ohio 5-0
- Texas A&M 7-1
- Iowa State 8-2
- Florida 8-2
- Georgia 7-2
- Cincinnati 8-0
- Oklahoma 7-2
- Indians 6-1
- Coastal Carolina 11-0
- USC 5-0
- Northwest 6-1
Alabama has likely secured a spot whether it beats Florida or not in Saturday’s SEC title game. If Florida wins, it has a chance of sneaking into the playoffs despite two losses in the year. The winner of Notre Dame and Clemson gets in, and Notre Dame can still enter with a loss. Ohio State is a big favorite against Northwestern, and the Buckeyes will almost certainly come in with a win. If the Buckeyes lose, it will open the door for Texas A&M, Iowa State or Cincinnati to take the final playoff spot.
