According to the Vegas sportsbook, Michigan would be the biggest threat to defeat Alabama in the College Football Playoffs. If the Wolverines sneak in, the Crimson Tide would be their matchup in a No. 1 vs. No. 4 battle.

After losing to Ohio State in double overtime in Week 13, Michigan is likely out of consideration for the College Football Playoffs.
The fourth spot in the playoffs will be between Washington, Michigan, and Penn State. Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson seem locked in for the top three slots.
