Since the College Football Playoff week 12 rankings came out last night, we thought you should see how our college loyalties fared.
Matt says he’s not playing along, so we’ll give him Memphis
Jimmy is a fan of South Carolina and whoever is playing Clemson
Ruchee is a Tennessee fan but will bandwagon for Ole Miss
And we all hate David just a little bit, since he’s a fan of both Florida State and Ole Miss
Looks like Florida State could be heading to the College Football Playoffs. All the hype says a team from the SEC:West and/or the winner of the SEC Championship will round out the Playoffs. While Ole Miss is still strong in the rankings, looks like they’re out of the Playoffs. We should see them at a Selection Committee Bowl Game on New Year’s Eve/Day. Both South Carolina and Tennessee aren’t quite bowl eligible yet but should have invitations waiting on them. Ahem, AutoZone Liberty Bowl, cough cough, are you listening? But with six wins already under their belts, Memphis is looking forward to their invitation to go bowling.
