There is still plenty of football to be played this season but seven out of twelve ESPN writers included LSU in their College Football Playoff picks after Week 4 with Sam Khan Jr. picking the Tigers as a No. 1 seed.

Clemson should be on the outside looking in. They play no one and lost alot.

I like Sam Khan. He has 3 SEC teams in and none are Alabama. Not sure how that happens, other than both LSU and Auburn beat Alabama. LSU beats Auburn, Auburn beats Georgia, and Georgia beats LSU in the SECCG. Still seems unlikely unless all the other conferences and ND implode.

its not an end of season prediction. Its a "if the playoffs started today, who are your 4 in?"

I like your prognostication except for the part about LSU losing a game! :D

How is that possible if we beat Bama and Aubie. we will have to play Georgia while Bama sits out but gets in. I hope Aubie beats Bama also.

(Note: These are not their projections for how the season will end.) It clearly states this. This is their projections if the season ended today

I support those writers who don't support Bama.

Sam Khan Jr. knows what's up. LSU has the best win so far this year.

But Auburn at #4?

He is respecting the teams that have played someone decent, all 4 of Sam's top 4 have a good win on their schedule. Cant say that about the team he omitted.

Well, they did until UGA beat ND. I think ND might actually be a real team this year rather than just a media darling. Congrats to UGA. But, then again, Texas is pretty durned good too. Maybe we just need to let it settle itself out in the SECCG. (Geaux Tigahs!)
