College Football Playoff projections after Week 13 games

These rankings will provide some idea about how the committee views Alabama in comparison to Ohio State, though the Buckeyes can change who they are.

Even if Oklahoma and Wisconsin win their respective championship bouts on Saturday, you could make a legitimate argument that Auburn's resume is better as a whole with two wins over Georgia and a victory over Alabama. For the sake of this exercise, the most efficient way to keep track of where teams stand is the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, not last week's CFP rankings.

If Ohio State beats Wisconsin and Georgia beats Auburn, the highest-ranked non-playoff team from those conference would probably be one-loss Alabama or one-loss Wisconsin instead of three-loss Auburn or two-loss Penn State.

First, the penultimate rankings will be released on Tuesday at 7 p.m. on ESPN, and Ohio State will at least move up.

It's not impossible for No. 10 TCU to earn a bid to the 2017 College Football Playoffs, but the odds really don't look good.

Playoff berths appear squarely at stake in the Auburn-Georgia SEC Championship game and the Clemson-Miami ACC Championship game.

But losses by Oklahoma and/or Wisconsin could open a door for Alabama to reach the playoff despite not reaching the SEC title game.

It will be an interesting finish to the year, and the field of four teams is sure to be hotly debated when the time comes. Any loss by any of the aforementioned teams will put the playoff rankings in flux. And if you're a supporter of Team Chaos, there's a scenario in which the Crimson Tide could sneak in as the No. 3 or No. 4 seed and find a way to play the Tigers in the national championship. Those in favor of Ohio State would claim its conference championship and three wins over ranked opponents.

The playoff semifinals will be played in the Rose and Sugar bowls on New Year's Day, with the winners advancing to the national championship game at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on January 8.
