The college football season is entering the home stretch with a lot of cupcakes this week followed by rivalry week to finish out the season. Then come conference championship games. 


With only a handful more games to go before the final four for the College Football Playoff are selected, the odds for who wins it all is becoming clearer.  

The Crimson Tide are fresh off two shut-outs against ranked opponents (LSU and Mississippi State) by a total of 53-0. They should remain favorites with only The Citadel and Auburn left before the SEC Championship, where they will face the University of Georgia. 


Georgia, on the other hand, has UMass and Georgia Tech left on their slate. The SEC Championship will yet again mold the CFP landscape in a major way. 


Clemson gets Duke and South Carolina at home on their way to the ACC Championship. They will face either Pittsburgh or the University of Virginia in Charlotte. 

Notre Dame has two tough match-ups remaining -- Syracuse and at USC. They could lose either -- even with junior quarterback Ian Book returning. 


The Big Ten spot should be determined in the final week of the regular season when Michigan and Ohio State square off. This will be a winner-take-all match-up with the Wolverines edging out the Buckeyes for now. Whoever wins that game plays Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship. 

Oklahoma and West Virginia also play in the final week of the season. Oklahoma's only loss came in the Red River Rivalry to Texas and WVU's against the perennial troublemakers -- Iowa State.


UCF and Washington State coming up the rear -- the longest of shots as of now to even qualify for the top four and a CFP berth.
