9. Michigan Wolverines

The others
Two more teams that were just on the verge of making the list were LSU and West Virginia, which both have a 6.4 percent chance to make the playoff but only a 0.6 percent chance to win it all.

Which is why we're already down to nine.

You know, since y'all are unbeaten... I'd kind of expect Kentucky to get at least a mention.

I mean for Pete's sake Oklahoma came within a heartbeat of losing to Army at home this year and they have a better shot then you do?

Any unbeaten team should be in the hunt, and above teams with a loss, at least at this point in the season.

ESPN genuinely hates us don't they?
Hope we keep proving them wrong. Maybe if we do well enough we can watch them melt live on national tv

re: 14 Teams for CFP via ESPN
To be fair, a big part is the CFP.

For what ever reason, Heather has become the voice for the CFP coverage the way Joe is for M basketball and Charlie is for W basketball. She has Indiana and ACC ties via Maryland so she always seems to show bias there.
