Maybe....but how will the committee justify not putting OSU at #3, which means they play Michigan? Georgia and Michigan are locks at #1 and #2.
Are they really going to keep TCU at #3? USC is out. OSU is in. Bama and TCU are a toss up. But Bama can't leapfrog OSU. Kind of a cluster. What is probably should be by the eye teat is Georgia vs. Bama and Mich. vs. OSU.....but nobody really wants that.
