Here we are again with our College Football Playoff Projections. As we bring you our Week 10 version of these, we have had to reroute a few things. First off, this is based on the Selection Committee’s criteria, and as we learned last week, conference champions will only be used as a tiebreaker when they have to nitpick between two teams. That means the door is wide open for two, three, or maybe four SEC West teams to get into the Top 4 conversation.

Sorry everybody else.

We have also realized that while head-to-head may be taken into account, it’s not as important as the eye test between two teams. That means a lot when it comes to Big 12 play if somebody from that conference makes it into the playoff.

Those things, which this site apparently values more than the selection committee, makes for a little bit more of a jumbled field. And it is forcing us to reorder our playoff picture. But no worries, there is still a lot to talk about.

So now we are ready to present our College Football Playoff projections for Week 10. And as always, we have to stress that these are projections. They aren’t our power rankings, they aren’t predictions, and they aren’t our Top 25.

They are a mathematical interpretation of whom the Top 4 should be at the end of the season based on the schedules and what our Top 25 is right now. If we simply did our Top 4 teams right now, the SEC West would have three of the four.

But that likely won’t happen.
