ESPN: 17 Teams Remain Alive In The College Football Playoff Race

Here are the teams that have not yet been eliminated from the race.

How many teams are still capable of winning the national championship this season?

According to ESPN, it's 17.

That might seem like too many, but according to the Worldwide Leader, that's how many teams are still - somewhat - alive in the College Football Playoff race .

Those 17 teams:

  1. Alabama
  2. Georgia
  3. Clemson
  4. Miami
  5. Oklahoma
  6. Notre Dame
  7. Ohio State
  8. Penn State
  9. Wisconsin
  10. Washington
  11. TCU
  12. Oklahoma State
  13. Virginia Tech
  14. Auburn
  15. UCF
  16. Stanford
  17. NC State

This list does seem to be a couple of teams too long (I would bet a lot on UCF and NC State being completely out of the College Football Playoff race) but I guess they do still have somewhat of a chance to make it.
