The Report Card: Week Twelve Analysis of the Power 5 Conferences
This section is our guess at which teams the Selection Committee would choose based on the body of work up to this point in the season. This list is not a ranking of the 4 best teams.

1- Oklahoma (29.25) versus 4- Miami (27.75)
2- Clemson (29) versus 3- Alabama (28.25)

10- Ohio State (18.5)
