The final full weekend of the College Football regular season has arrived, and that means that the College Football Playoff picture is coming into focus. Several of the top teams face tough challenges, and two of the top four teams will play one another is a Conference title game next weekend. That means every game among these elite teams matter, and you will want to stream them all even without cable. Let's go deep on the College Football Playoff picture, and get you setup to watch all the best games online.
College Football Playoff rankings — Top 10
Here are the current rankings for the College Football Playoff. Remember that the top four teams in the final rankings will make the playoffs. The final rankings will come after next weekend's Conference Championship games.
Conference listed after record
- Ohio State (11-0) Big Ten
- LSU (11-0) SEC
- Clemson (11-0) ACC
- Georgia (10-1) SEC
- Alabama (10-1) SEC
- Utah (10-1) Pac-12
- Oklahoma (10-1) Big 12
- Minnesota (10-1) Big Ten
- Baylor (10-1) Big 12
- Penn State (9-2) Big Ten
To no one's surprise, it's been a strong year for SEC and Big Ten teams, with a combined six of the top ten teams. On the other side of the coin, the ACC and Pac-12 only have one team each on the list. The Big 12 needs a hail mary to get in, hoping for a couple of other teams to lose, and Oklahoma to sweep out Baylor in the Conference title game next weekend.
All ten teams will be in action this Saturday, and you can stream all of the games. With ten games spread over five networks, you can watch potential playoff teams from noon to late at night. Here's a quick rundown of each game, and why they're important.
College Football Week 14 Schedule — Playoff Ranked Teams
Saturday, November 30
- Noon, (1) Ohio State vs. (13) Michigan, FOX
- Noon, (3) Clemson vs. South Carolina, ESPN
- Noon, (4) Georgia vs. Georgia Tech, ABC
- 7 p.m., Texas A&M vs. (2) LSU, ESPN
If any game has the potential to shake up the College Football Playoff rankings this weekend, it is Ohio State vs. Michigan. Ohio State is a deserving top-ranked team, with an undefeated record and wins against three ranked teams in 2019. However Michigan is 9-2 with a four-game winning streak and coach Jim Harbaugh has excelled in the role of spoiler, after early struggles put the playoffs out of reach for the Wolverines.
LSU plays against a Texas A&M team that appears capable on paper, with a 7-4 record. However Texas A&M has had four other games this year against top-ten ranked teams and they were swept in them, losing to Clemson, Auburn, Alabama and Georgia.
Both Clemson and Georgia should cruise to wins, as they both face teams that have struggled in 2019. Clemson's opponent, South Carolina, is 4-7 on the season, and Georgia's rival team Georgia Tech is 3-8.
If any of these four teams stumble, here are the games that feature the teams ready to pounce if a spot opens up.
- 3:30 p.m., (5) Alabama vs. (15) Auburn, CBS
- 3:30 p.m., (12) Wisconsin vs. (8) Minnesota, ABC
- 3:30 p.m., (9) Baylor vs. Kansas, ESPN
- 3:30 p.m., Rutgers vs. (10) Penn State, BTN
- 7:30 p.m., Colorado vs. (6) Utah, ABC
- 8 p.m., (7) Oklahoma vs. (21) Oklahoma State, FOX
This will be the last chance for two of these teams to impress the College Football Playoff committee. Both Alabama and Penn State failed to earn a spot in their Conference Championships, which are played next weekend. Alabama plays a quality team in Auburn, and given their past success and injury situations, a win this Saturday might be all they need. Meanwhile Penn State is a long shot even with a blowout win this weekend against a poor Rutgers team.
Minnesota and Wisconsin are playing in a game-of-the-weekend contender, and there is more on the line than just the chance for the Golden Gophers to shift up in the rankings. The winner of this game will face Ohio State next week in the Big Ten Conference Championship game.
Oklahoma and Baylor are rivals who will be rooting for each other this weekend. These two teams are already locked in to play next week in the Big 12 Championship. The best chance either has to jump enough spots to make the playoffs starts with both of them earning wins on Saturday. Utah is in a similar situation, having secured their spot in the Pac-12 Championship next week against Oregon.
The Conference Championships next weekend will most likely open up at least one spot for this group of teams. Next Saturday in the SEC Championship, second-ranked LSU will play against fourth-ranked Georgia. The winner is nearly certain to be in the playoff. If Georgia loses, it is very likely another team can slide in. If LSU loses, they could still advance but things could get chaotic.
Conference Championship Weekend — Playoff Ranked Teams
Friday, December 6
- 8 p.m., Pac-12 Championship, Oregon vs. (6) Utah or USC, ABC
Saturday, December 7
- Noon, Big 12 Championship, (9) Baylor vs. (7) Oklahoma, ABC
- 4 p.m., SEC Championship, (4) Georgia vs. (2) LSU, CBS
- 7:30 p.m., ACC Championship, (3) Clemson vs. Virginia or Virginia Tech, ABC
- 8 p.m., Big Ten Championship, (1) Ohio State vs. (8) Minnesota or (12) Wisconsin, FOX
Now is the time for you to get in the game, so you can be ready to watch all of these top teams even if you've cut the cord. As a bonus, you can take these games wherever you go, so a busy Saturday doesn't need to keep you away from all the action. Best of all, since you can stream on all of your devices, you can watch one game on your TV, another on your tablet, and a third on your smartphone for an ultimate multiview experience.
