On Saturday, LSU will play Georgia for a spot in the playoff, Ohio State looks to wrap up their bid, and the Big 12’s Oklahoma-Baylor matchup could also act as an unofficial quarterfinal. All-in-all, five teams are playing for their playoff lives this weekend and there could be some very difficult decisions for the Committee come next week.

Our old friend Jim McElwain’s and his Central Michigan Chippewas will look to finish their surprise season with a championship while Boise State, Cincinnati, and Memphis will all try to make a statement to earn the G5’s lone NY6 bid.
