Quick College Football Playoff Notes
By Bo Carter
Three different conference teams have captured the CFP in its first five seasons – Ohio State (Big Ten) in 2014, Alabama (Southeastern) in 2015, 17 and Clemson (Atlantic Coast) in ’16, ‘18. Clemson, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Georgia were the four semifinalists in 2017, and Alabama and Clemson have met in four consecutive years in the CFP – in the semifinals in 2017 and for the overall title after both the 2015, ’16 and ’18 seasons.
Alabama now holds the BCS/CFP record for consecutive weeks in either standings with 83 appearances from 2008-19. USC previously appeared in 65 consecutive BCS standings from 2002-09 for the previous mark. Next on the listings in either rankings are Texas with 56 from 2003-10, Ohio State with 50 from 2004-10 and Georgia with 48 from 2002-08.
Clemson and Alabama occupied a combined 11 appearances among the first five years (20 teams selected) in the CFP semifinals.
– Alabama (18 times), Clemson (eight), Mississippi State (three), Georgia (two), LSU (two), and Ohio State (two) are the only schools to hold down the No. 1 position in six seasons of CFP standings.
– There have been three schools appearing in each of the first 35 2014-19 CFP standings. They are Alabama, Clemson and Ohio State. No school appeared in all 125 BCS standings from 1998-2013. Texas had the most Top 15/25 showings with 104 during 16 seasons in the BCS rankings.
– In the BCS era (1998-2013), there were 30 undefeated teams in the final BCS Standings. From 2014-18 in the last CFP Top 25s, there were 10 additional teams. Alabama, Notre Dame and UCF entered their conference championship games or completed their regular seasons (Notre Dame) in 2018 as unbeaten teams prior to the CFP standings Sunday, Dec. 2. Only UCF emerged at 12-0 and the lone undefeated team prior to bowl selections among the FBS in ’17, and the Knights carried a 25-game winning streak into the post-2018 bowl campaign before falling to LSU. Through standings of Nov. 26, 2019, three schools remain unbeaten – Clemson, LSU and Ohio State/
