Georgia on Monday announced future home-and-home series with both Texas and Clemson. The Bulldogs and Longhorns will play in 2028 (at Texas) and in 2029 (at Georgia). Georgia and Clemson will play in 2029 (at Clemson) and in 2030 (at Georgia). The teams in August announced they will play in the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta.

Assume Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma and Georgia all win out, Alabama finishes 12-1 and Notre Dame finishes 11-1. In that scenario, Playoff Predictor makes Clemson and Georgia virtual locks and considers Michigan very likely to get in. The decision for the last spot would be almost a toss-up between Oklahoma and Alabama, but our model thinks the committee is more likely to select the Sooners, by a hair. Notre Dame would be the least likely of the six to get in.

If Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and Oklahoma all win out, Playoff Predictor thinks Michigan (65%) is more likely to take that last spot and get in the playoff than Oklahoma (40%).
