Alabama/UGA winner, Clemson, Oklahoma and Ohio State is who ESPN is picking to make the CFP. Do with this whatever you will, Ranters.

Beating Texas 3 times in 12 months would be pretty awesome, but I don't see it happening

Don't understand the hype on UGA every year. They were dnominated last year by us and Texas, and they haven't played nobody this year, and yet these analyst are projecting them into the playoff and beat Bama in SECC? LoL

Neither school nor conference will go for a Texas/LSU matchup outside of the Playoff. Won’t happen.

It's no longer their choice. Both conferences have already agreed to send their highest ranked team (not in the Playoffs) to the Sugar Bowl.

I would love it, but for the fact that we are playing them in September 2020.

Exactly. I don't see the interest from LSU fans for a rematch when we play them again next September. The Dome would be at least 75% burnt orange. I don't think we would travel well, even though it's right down the road.

Would rather play someone for the National Championship. Texas ain't gonna be in that conversation.

This would be 3 games in 12 months. Nope. If LSU doesn't make the national playoff, then match us up against Joe B's old team Ohio State.
