Following the CFP reveal show, ESPN sent out the following tweet about how no team ranked No. 3 in the initial rankings have made it to the playoff.

Those teams that missed the playoff include:

2014 - Auburn

You're trying too hard agaun Leo. A trend for something that's only been around for 6 years doesn't hold much water. However Alabama's broken decades old records the last 10 years, a 6 year old one isn't a big deal.

Oh look, an LSU fan living off the victory of another team. Maybe one day the purple tigers will actually make the playoffs. 9 in a row this weekend though.
