ESPN posted a roundtable discussion this morning in which its college football writers attempt to decide how many College Football Playoff contenders there are in each conference.
How many teams from the SEC does ESPN believe can contend for a spot in the College Football Playoff?
Alabama, Florida, LSU, Ole Miss and Tennessee are all potential College Football Playoff contenders, per ESPN.
From the discussion:
This won’t be the year the SEC gets two teams in the playoff. Let’s get that annual debate over with right now. If there’s a path for it, I don’t see it. With that said, there are a few playoff contenders — five by my estimation. Alabama is the clear favorite with a loaded defense, a slew of skill players and the best coach in the game. Outside of the Tide, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Florida make the cut, with varying degrees of confidence.
Here’s how we’d rank those teams by their ability to contend:
- Ole Miss
What’s your SEC list look like?
