Here's What Happens If Alabama Loses To Florida Today

What'll happen if Alabama loses to Florida this afternoon.

The 12-0, No. 1-ranked Crimson Tide currently trail Florida in the SEC Championship Game, 7-0, midway through the first quarter.

What will happen to the College Football Playoff if Alabama goes down?

Nothing. Probably.

ESPN's 538 prediction model currently gives Alabama a 91 percent chance to make the College Football Playoff. If they lose, the Crimson Tide's odds drop to 41 percent, but honestly, that seems really, really too low.

Most view Alabama as a lock to make it, regardless of what happens this afternoon.

We agree with that.

Mostly, the only thing that might happen if Alabama loses is that the Crimson Tide could drop to the No. 2 or No. 3 seem, prompting Ohio State or Clemson to the top overall seed.

Alabama and Florida are currently playing on CBS. The Gators' lead won't last for long, probably.
