College Football Playoff Week 4 Preview

Posted: September 22, 2016 in NCAAF

Entering week four of the College Football season only 42 teams have a shot at making the playoff. I went through the games this week and that list of 42 teams to provide a preview of meaningful games this week.

True Elimination Games (2)

True elimination games are where the winner survives another week and the loser is eliminated from contention. I will provide the days and times for these games.

Pittsburgh @ North Carolina (Saturday, 2:30 CST, ESPNU)

Colorado @ Oregon (Saturday, 4:30 CST, Pac 12 Network)

Elimination Games (14)

Elimination games are when one team in the game would be eliminated with a loss. That team will be denoted with an asterisk. The other team has either already been eliminated, or can lose the game without being eliminated.

Kent State @ Alabama*

Louisville* @ Marshall

Colorado State @ Minnesota*

Washington @ Arizona*

Florida State* @ South Florida

Missouri State @ Kansas State*

LSU* @ Auburn

Boise State @ Oregon State*

Penn State* @ Michigan

Iowa @ Rutgers*

South Carolina* @ Kentucky

The maximum number of teams that could remain in contention for the college football playoff after this week is 40 teams. The minimum number of teams is 26.
