How Oklahoma State and Iowa stack up in CFP bid


Pro Football Focus goes inside the numbers to decide which of the first two teams out of the College Football Playoffs – Oklahoma State and Iowa – have the better resume for a playoff bid.

    The Cowboys will finish the season 12-0 so obviously they have no business being in a playoff.

  • Tim Edell

    It is pretty simple for these 2 teams, win out and there in. There is no way the committee can put a 1 loss ND team ahead of an undefeated team from the Big 10 or Big 12.

      Normally I’d agree with you Tim but we’ve seen the committee totally abandon logic in the past. Notre Dame has the kind of mystique in college football that Dale Earnhardt Jr. has in NASCAR so this should be interesting.
