Full Rankings

Following the CFP reveal show, ESPN sent out the following tweet about how no team ranked No. 3 in the initial rankings have made it to the playoff.


Those teams that missed the playoff include:

2014 - Auburn
2015 - Ohio State
2016 - Michigan
2017 - Notre Dame
2018 - LSU

We'll see if the trend continues or if Alabama will make it to the big dance at the end of the season.

Oh look, an LSU fan living off the victory of another team. Maybe one day the purple tigers will actually make the playoffs. 9 in a row this weekend though.

You're trying too hard agaun Leo. A trend for something that's only been around for 6 years doesn't hold much water. However Alabama's broken decades old records the last 10 years, a 6 year old one isn't a big deal.
