With convincing victories on Saturday by No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Clemson and a tough road win by No. 4 Georgia, there shouldn't be any change this week in the College Football Playoff selection committee's top four. That doesn't mean, though, that the fourth spot will be a lock on Selection Day.

Far from it.

Assuming LSU, Ohio State and Clemson follow the script and keep winning over the next three weeks, there should be a good debate for the fourth spot, as an LSU win in the SEC championship game likely would eliminate Georgia. With only two weeks left in the regular season, plus the conference championship games, time is running out for a jumble of one-loss teams to make a lasting impression on the 13-member selection committee.

Here's a deeper dive into every contender beyond the top three, ranked in order of their current CFP standing:


No. 4 Georgia
The Bulldogs clinched the SEC East with their win at Auburn, and as long as they avoid an upset over the next two weeks against Texas A&M and a dreadful 2-8 Georgia Tech team, they will be in the SEC championship game playing for a semifinal spot. Georgia's position is the most straightforward, because if it wins the SEC, it should finish in the top four -- most likely along with LSU, provided that is the Tigers' only loss.

According to the Allstate Playoff Predictor, Georgia now has a 42% chance to make the CFP and currently ranks fifth. If Georgia wins out, including a win in the SEC championship game, the Bulldogs would have an 88% chance to make the CFP.

If Georgia loses in the SEC title game, it would fall out and make room for a great debate.

"Our kids were very resilient to come into this place, lose momentum, obviously lose momentum, and be able to go back out and get it; shows some fortitude and the ability to handle adversity," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. "I'm really proud of our guys. With all of that said, it's on to the next one. Texas A&M has a great team, a great program, and we've got to get better. We're not where we need to be, but I give Auburn a lot of credit for that, as well."
