Week 11 College Football Playoff Predictions: Who’s In?

These are the only 15 teams that I see that still have a legitimate chance at making it into this season’s College Football Playoff (CFP). I have included the remaining schedules for each of the teams as well as a prediction for each of their remaining games and who ultimately I believe will make it into the CFP. Each game’s prediction includes the team’s predicted record following the game as well as their predicted national ranking among these and only these 15 teams. When teams play games against other teams on this list of 15 teams, that matchup is listed in bold print. I have also included conference championship game predictions for the teams that I believe will advance to that point. The teams’ records and rankings following week 14 are the final predicted records and rankings prior to bowl season.

NOTE: I did add a few teams that have not been on the list the past few weeks that still have a small chance to get into the CFP if they win out.
