On Wednesday night, the college football season rolled on as Appalachian State kept its undefeated season alive with a win over Louisiana. Appalachian State is just one of 16 undefeated programs left in college football.
Unfortunately for the Mountaineers, they won’t be in the College Football Playoff race even if they finish the season without a blemish.
While the Mountaineers are likely out of the race, many other programs are not. Before the rest of the weekend’s slate of games kick off, ESPN’s Desmond Howard revealed the four programs he’d like to see in the playoff – if the season ended today.
In an episode of “As The Season Turns” Howard revealed the two match-ups he wants to see.
Howard wants Georgia to face off against Ohio State – which would pit Justin Fields against his former team. He also wants Alabama to face off against Oklahoma – where, like Fields, Jalen Hurts would play against his former team.

Week 6 is in the rearview. Check out a new twist to "As The Season Turns” where #Hershey talks #Heisman, top teams (sorta) and a "ball of confusion" for @SMU_Football.@CollegeGameDay pic.twitter.com/UWJGiJo5i3

Both match-ups would provide plenty of story-lines heading into the College Football Playoff. Ratings would also be off the charts to see four of the biggest programs in the country battle it out.
Will these be the four teams in the playoff?
