Who will make the College Football Playoff?

The Allstate Playoff Predictor breaks down which teams have the best chance to make this season's College Football Playoff.


Championship Week is here.

And that means the remaining College Football Playoff contenders have one more chance to impress the committee by securing an all-important conference title.

Since the playoff began in 2014, 29 of the 36 playoff participants have been conference champions. Four schools -- Georgia, Michigan, Washington and Florida State -- enter this conference title week undefeated, while four one-loss teams -- Oregon, Ohio State, Texas and Alabama -- still have a playoff shot, creating must-win stakes for almost everyone.

So who will make it this year? Make your picks below and see what the Allstate Playoff Predictor says.

Potential Chaos Points

Ohio State is idle during conference championship weekend but lurking, hoping multiple contenders slip.

In 2014, TCU was idle during conference championship weekend and was infamously over taken by Ohio State. Last year the Buckeyes sat at home after losing to Michigan -- again -- but snuck into the playoff after USC lost in the Pac-12 championship game.

In the 10th year of the playoff, this may be the deepest field and there's potential for chaos. It starts Friday when Oregon looks to avenge its lone loss against unbeaten Washington for the Pac-12 title and a likely playoff bid. Unbeaten Georgia looks to slam the door on Alabama's playoff hopes in the SEC championship game. Florida State hopes to ride backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker to ACC championship game win over Louisville and secure its spot in the postseason.

Riding high after beating their rivals, Michigan would likely clinch a playoff berth with a win against a stingy Iowa defense in the Big Ten championship. And Texas, whose win over Alabama in Week 2 still resonates, can further solidify its case for a playoff bid with a win over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 championship game.

No matter the results, the committee will have difficult decisions to make with so many competitive teams.

Your Final Results

Of course, it's the committee who will decide which teams feel vindicated and which will inevitably call foul, but this is what Playoff Predictor says the top five could look like if you chose correctly.
