I know it’s a pipe dream but if I’m Texas A&M why don’t I schedule a game on
12/19 with BYU since Texas A&M could use another data point to make a case for inclusion in the CFP. Texas A&M won’t be in the SEC championship game that day so play an undefeated BYU further justify your case over horrible OSU schedule. Mandel lays out the argument about OSU’s lack of games. I know I’m dreaming for BYU here but why not???
If you're the CFP, how do you handle the fact Ohio State, already in your top 4, is going to get to 7-0 max? Is that enough to merit leaving out an 11-0 Cincinnati? 9-1 A&M?
