Auburn, which lost to Clemson on September 9, slid up to No. 2 after knocking off the Crimson Tide. The Hurricanes last won a national title in the 2001 season. If Georgia downs Auburn in the SEC championship, would the Bulldogs jump over Alabama? The Big 12 and ACC were the only other conferences to record multiple championships with two apiece.
Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma and Wisconsin will enter championship weekend positioned to earn a playoff spot with just one more victory. Nope. That would just mean Oklahoma and TCU split their season series, and the Horned Frogs' résumé doesn't include the type of quality wins fellow two-loss contender Auburn's does.
An Oklahoma loss to TCU is the best scenario for Alabama. Auburn would become the first two-loss team to play in the playoff but that would be because they beat two teams ranked No. 1 by the committee in November, and a second win against a Georgia team the committee rightfully respects as much as they do is a nice final push into the playoff should Auburn win.
No. 1 Clemson and No. 7 Miami will meet in the ACC title game, while No. 2 Auburn faces No. 6 Georgia in the SEC title game with winners from both expected to wind up in the top four. Wisconsin faces Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game Saturday.

"We take care of our business, as we have so far, good things are going to happen". Clemson appears to be a lock to stay No. 1 if it beats Miami in the ACC championship game.

No. 2 Oklahoma (minus 7) vs.
Peach Bowl: No. 14 UCF vs. Maybe Notre Dame could move up and in if some of its previous opponents play well this weekend. Given its location, UCF's most likely destination seems to be the Peach Bowl. "Very little separation in the committee's eyes between teams five through eight".
