We’re finally here, folks. The 2023 regular season and Championship Week are now over and the College Football Playoff field is set to be announced on Sunday afternoon.
It was as wild of a Championship Week as anyone could’ve asked for and the chaos scenario has played out thanks to an Alabama win over No. 1 Georgia in the SEC title game.
There are several potential scenarios for the final playoff field, but here’s what I think it’s going to look like when the committee reveals its final poll on Sunday.
For the third straight year, Michigan is your Big Ten champion. Jim Harbaugh returned to the sidelines after being suspended for three games and all he did was lead the Wolverines to a 26-0 blowout of Iowa in the conference championship game.
While Michigan had arguably the weakest opponent of any Power Five conference champion in the title game, it did not disappoint and controlled the game from start to finish.
Although Michigan’s schedule this year was far from a gauntlet, it finished the season with three ranked wins in the final four games. The Wolverines beat No. 10 Penn State on the road, No. 2 Ohio State, and No. 16 Iowa.
The offense has been struggling slightly lately, but good thing the defense has stepped up.
Michigan will be the No. 1 team in this year’s playoff after Georgia’s loss.
