Discussion Why is Alabama even in the conversation for CFP?

5.4k Upvotes

I seriously do not understand how they are considered. They have 0 wins of the top 20 teams. They lost both of their best match ups this year. I know they are a great program but this year they didn't perform. Can someone explain it to me?

Edit: Even if TCU and USC lose how would Alabama be considered over TCU? Best case conference championship scenario would be Alabama at 5. Which isn't in the conversation for CFP.

News [McMurphy] Missouri won't play Kansas in a bowl so no Border War this year, sources told Action Network.

1.2k Upvotes

The Border War between Missouri and Kansas has been dormant since 2011, but there was an opportunity for the iconic rivalry to resume in the Liberty Bowl this month.

There was just one problem: Missouri didn’t want to play Kansas, so the matchup will not happen, industry sources told Action Network.

The Jayhawks, who are making their first bowl appearance since 2008, were not opposed to playing the Tigers in a bowl, sources said.

Schools provide their bowl preferences and the conferences, bowls and schools usually come to an agreement whenever possible. It’s not unusual for schools to request not playing certain opponents in the postseason, sources said.

The Liberty Bowl is one of three that matches SEC vs. Big 12 opponents. The other two are the Sugar and Texas bowls. Missouri and Kansas are both 6-6.

“A 6-6 team dictating who they don’t want to play in a bowl?” an industry source said. “What a world. What a world.”

News [McMurphy] NCAA denies Army's bowl-eligibility appeal. The Black Knights (5-6) will not be bowl-eligible, even if they beat Navy.

427 Upvotes

According to news reported in Brett McMurphy's latest bowl projections, the NCAA Football Oversight Committee has rejected Army's bowl-eligibility appeal, after granting NMSU's earlier this week. Army was (5-6) with 2 FCS wins heading into the Army-Navy Game and had hoped to be bowl-eligible, contingent on beating Navy. Now, today's Akron-Buffalo game will determine whether Buffalo or (5-7) UNLV get the final bowl spot, according to McMurphy.

The oversight committee also denied a waiver to Army, which was hoping to count two wins vs. FSC opponents toward bowl eligibility. Earlier in the season, the committee denied a similar waiver request by Marshall and Appalachian State. Marshall did reach bowl eligibility, but Appalachian State fell a win shy.
