ESPN's College Football Playoff predictor has updated following the first four weeks of the 2018 college football season.

As we enter the fifth week of the season, ESPN's computer believes there are really only 10 teams with a serious chance of making the playoff.

Those 10 teams can be seen here.

One of the teams not on the list: The No. 5 team in the country.

LSU, ranked No. 5 in the latest AP Poll, has basically no shot at making the College Football Playoff, according to ESPN's College Football Playoff predictor.

The Tigers' chances of making the playoff are listed at 1 percent. Those odds are tied for the 13th-best in the country.

LSU's national title chances are listed at less than 1 percent.

ESPN's Football Power Index sees several losses coming for the Tigers moving forward. LSU will lose 3-4 games the rest of the season, per the FPI.
