Rugby Prediction: Cincinnati’s College Football Playoff Case Intensifies With Pac-12 Again Dismissed

It was another big day for Cincinnati in its quest to become the first Team of Five to play in the College Football Round. Oregon was drilled in Utah, 38-7, eliminating the Ducks entirely and ensuring that the Pac-12 would not be in the CFP for the sixth consecutive season. It was one more hurdle that was removed for the Bearcats, having performed their role in an SMU 48-14 strike. It was Cincinnati’s best performance in a month.

Losing to Oregon didn’t change our end-of-season prediction, though, because the top lane loss to Utah was built in the process. Ducks are still predicted to win the Pac-12 and play in the Rose Bowl, which means winning a rematch against the Utes at a neutral venue in a couple of weeks.

The previous prediction that New Year’s Six would lose on Saturday was also predicted. However, I don’t think Michigan State is so embarrassed against Ohio State. Buckeyes defeated Sparta, 56-3. The loss isn’t likely to get MSU out of its New Year’s six-hit streak, but Michigan State needs to bounce back and close strongly against Penn State next week. Michigan also had a big win ahead of Saturday’s win-loss showdown with Ohio State at the Big House. This might be the best chance for Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh to win the game he was hired to win.

The Big 12 also went as expected. Oklahoma State earned a spot in the conference championship match with a 23-0 win over Texas Tech. The Cowboys will host Oklahoma next Saturday with the Sooners needing to win or lose against Baylor (vs Texas Tech) to progress to the championship game. A Baylor win and loss in Oklahoma sent the Bears to Dallas to face the Pokes. The Sooners or Cowboys must win for the Big 12 to have any shot at a spot in the CFP, but the dire predictions have Oklahoma win and play in the Sugar Bowl.

Alabama earned a spot in the SEC Championship Game with Georgia’s top-ranked team by beating Arkansas, 42-35. At this time, there is no scenario where Bulldogs are excluded from the CFP. The Crimson Tide are definitely on a win, and they’re expected to still get a spot even if they lose, but that’s much less certain.

With these results, for the first time in the whole season, College football The six finals and New Year’s predictions remain the same this week.

There are three teams that are predicted to finish 5-7 in the round predictions again this week. Illinois and Rutgers from the Big Ten are still in that group. This time they are joined by Florida, who just lost in Missouri on Saturday. The tigers have become at peace with the victory. Gator last defeated an FBS team on October 9 when they defeated Vanderbilt. Florida finished the Gasparilla Bowl in Tampa ahead of Miami. Or maybe it wasn’t such great luck after all.
