Playoff Picks Teams (Record) Votes Georgia (11-0) 12/12 Ohio State (11-0) 12/12 TCU (11-0) 12/12 Michigan (11-0) 11/12 USC (10-1) 1/12 College football's final four unbeaten teams each got a test, and each passed heading into the final week of the regular season. For TCU and Michigan it took last-minute field goals to win close games against Baylor (29-28) and Illinois (19-17), respectively. Ohio State found itself trailing at halftime against Maryland, but a blocked punt to start the third quarter and a scoop-and-score in the final 10 seconds flipped the game just enough for a 43-30 win ahead of next week's showdown against the Wolverines. Georgia never trailed at Kentucky, but the Bulldogs nearly found themselves in a one-score game with less than 5 minutes remaining before Kentucky missed a field goal attempt. Georgia walked away with a 16-6 victory. With a highly entertaining 48-45 win over UCLA in the late window, USC also jumped onto our list. With all that in mind, here's a look at how ESPN's college football reporters see the current playoff picture. Blake Baumgartner: 1. Georgia 2. Ohio State 3. Michigan 4. TCU Bill Connelly: 1.
