ESPN's FPI predicts 2022 College Football Playoff champion
ESPN’s FPI is predicting the 2022 college football season, including the 2022 College Football Playoff champions.
In terms of the Playoff, the Football Power Index is especially high on Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia and Clemson. Those four teams have the best odds to make the CFP and are the only teams given more than a 19% chance to make the field of four.
It comes as no surprise that those four teams are also given the best odds to come away as the national champs in 2022. Every team in that group is given at least a 10% chance of winning the championship.

- Alabama – 30%
- Ohio State – 27.5%
- Georgia – 24.2%
- Clemson – 10%
- Notre Dame – 2%
- Texas – 1.9%
- Michigan – 1.6%
