ESPN’s FPI predicts outcome of Power 5 conference championship games
We are officially entering Championship Weekend with the final pieces to the College Football Playoff soon to be determined.
Coming out of Rivalry Week, there were not a lot of changes in the top six teams for the CFP Rankings. No. 5 Alabama was the only team to lose with Ohio State, LSU, Clemson, Georgia, and No. 6 Utah winning with relative ease. Just outside of the top six, No. 7 Oklahoma and No. 9 Baylor will also get a chance to make a push for the final four.
Winning a conference title alone is a solid accomplishment. However, for most of these teams, it could be just another stepping stone to bigger goals in the Playoff.
As we get set for the week of conference championships, here is how ESPN’s FPI is predicting the Power 5 conference championship games:
- Clemson (94.9%) vs Virginia (5.1%)
- Ohio State (81.6%) vs Wisconsin (18.4%)
- Oklahoma (69.4%) vs Baylor (30.6%)
- Utah (51.1%) vs Oregon (48.9%)
- LSU (55.7%) vs Georgia (44.3%)
