The College Football Playoff race is heating up as the final week of college football’s regular season is here. Rivalry week tends to spark shocking upsets. Playoff hopeful teams must be careful at this point in the season.
With limited games remaining this year, Fox Sports analyst Urban Meyer has released his CFP picks based off what’s happened so far this season. Last week, Meyer included Oregon, Clemson, LSU and Ohio State in his top four picks.
But the Ducks suffered a knockout loss to Arizona State last Saturday. As a result, Meyer has once again revised his playoff picks.
Clemson, LSU and Ohio State remain in the top four while Pac-12 hopeful Utah replaces Oregon. The former Ohio State head coach still thinks the Buckeyes win it all to close the season.
Meyer’s College Football Playoff picks:
Ohio State (champion), LSU, Clemson, Utah

Meyer isn’t the only Fox Sports analyst who thinks the Utes are heading to the playoff. Joel Klatt agrees with the Utah pick as well.
The general consensus is that Ohio State, LSU and Clemson are locks to be selected to college football’s four team playoff. The No. 4 seed is up in the air for now.
It’ll most likely come down to Alabama, Oklahoma, Georgia and Utah. If all four teams win out, the committee will be faced with an extremely tough decision.
