Videos by OutKick

No matter how the latest College Football Playoff rankings play out, OutKick founder Clay Travis has his own top four.

And no, he’s not totally sold on Alabama.

“If I were writing on the College Football Playoff right now, my No. 1 team — Georgia,” Clay said, before repeating himself for emphasis. “Georgia, Georgia, Georgia. The only team that is 100% guaranteed to be in the playoff.

“My No. 2 team would be Michigan. (No. 3 is) Alabama, with No. 4 Oklahoma State.”

After that, Clay lists Cincinnati as No. 5 and Notre Dame at No. 6. Ohio State, Ole Miss, Baylor and Oregon, respectively, round out Clay’s top 10.

“I think there are 11 teams that are still alive, believe it or not, for the College Football Playoff,” Clay added.
