8-1, 2nd in SEC - West
What happens to Alabama after falling out of top four? (0:55)

Heather Dinich ESPN Senior Writer 

At No. 5, Alabama is going to need some help to finish in the top four on Selection Day. The question is if a Pac-12 title will be enough to bump Oregon or Utah ahead of the SEC's second-best team on Selection Day. Alabama might finish with just one win against a ranked opponent, Auburn, and it might not be enough to change the committee's mind when other teams still have bigger, better opportunities.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

LSU ranks first in Strength of Record and it isn't close. An average top-25 team would have had just a 1% chance to be undefeated thus far against LSU's schedule. Meanwhile that seem team would have had a 16% chance to go undefeated vs. Ohio State's schedule, the next best. Among the undefeateds, Clemson had it easiest: an average top 25 team would have had a 29% chance to be 10-0 at this point against the Tigers' schedule.
