ESPN’s playoff predictor lists Alabama (76%), Oklahoma (71%), Georgia (69%) and Oregon (43%) as the top four teams given a chance to reach the postseason playoff.

But analyst Heather Dinich had a different take, giving the Bulldogs and the Ducks a higher probability than the Sooners. Her argument is that the win over Ohio State, in Columbus, gives the Ducks the edge. Her Top 4 looks like this:

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide
  2. Georgia Bulldogs
  3. Oregon Ducks
  4. Oklahoma Sooners

Ohio State has fallen to 6th on the list, with just a 23% chance of reaching the playoffs. Clemson comes in at the five-spot, just ahead of them at 40%.

But hey, it’s Week 3 and after what we’ve seen in the first two weeks, hold on and buckle up — this can change fast.
