What turned out to be a chaotic final weekend of the regular season has, ironically, created the most peaceful path to the College Football Playoff.
Losses by No. 1 Georgia and No. 5 Ohio State should make it an easy job for the selection committee. The final four teams that make up the playoff were clear: No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Michigan, No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Cincinnati.
