Michigan still holding out hope for spot in CFP (1:54)

David Lombardi ESPN Staff Writer 

Making this more complicated, we have dueling, non-congruent debates for CFP inclusion between Ohio State-Penn State and Washington-Penn State. Michigan, with its 39-point win over the Nittany Lions, throws a further wrench into things. We won't know which facts and metrics the committee values most until tomorrow, but this year's dilemma will certainly set some precedent and intensify calls for a larger playoff format.

Pure chaos should be averted with Clemson's win. There's a very good chance the final College Football Playoff top four will look just like last week's. Three of the four participants won conference championship games against ranked teams, and the fourth (Ohio State) didn't play.

From a numbers perspective, a Penn State win is actually better from Washington's perspective. The Nittany Lions' strength of record (16%) is worse than Wisconsin's (12%) given a win. The Huskies are at 11%, the best of the group, and looking for the most surefire way to hold onto their No. 4 spot.

Virginia Tech, with an opportunity to send College Football Playoff matters into true chaos, trails Clemson by only 7 with four minutes left. The Hokies have the ball.

A Michigan fan snuck his way into the Clemson section, making the Wolverines final plea for chaos. He ought to be in the Virginia Tech section, because it seems Michigan's chances reside with No. 3 Clemson losing the ACC title game.

Washington's strength of record -- 11% -- is now stronger than Michigan's, Wisconsin's, or Penn State's (even factoring in the boost the winner will get from tonight's Big Ten title game). This should make the Huskies feel very good about their College Football Playoff spot.

Michigan is rooting for Colorado to upset Washington tonight. Is the ghost of Jim Harbaugh present at Levi's Stadium, his former home for one year before taking over for the Wolverines?
