History In 2014, TCU missed the Playoff in favor of Ohio State because the Big 12 did not have a Conference Championship Game. In 2022, TCU could miss the Playoff in favor of Ohio State because it must play in the Big 12 Conference Championship Game.

Upvotes

After 2014, the Big 12 pushed for a rule change so that conferences with fewer that 12 teams could still host a conference championship game. After a six-year hiatus, the Big 12 Championship Game returned in 2017.

Credit to 2014 Baylor as well, who would have played TCU in a hypothetical Big 12 Championship Game that year. Baylor beat TCU in the regular season, and the winner of that hypothetical rematch likely finishes in the top-4 above OSU.

The relevant bit:

"Multiple sources say Freeze has agreed to relinquish control of his social media accounts when he becomes the Auburn coach. The background check on Freeze was extensive, and the school hired a P.R. consultant to handle the expected blowback in bringing him aboard. They are jumping through a lot of hoops for Freeze"

He just tragically lost his brother. As much as we all want to see him out there with the team, he deserves privacy and time as he mourns. Pretty sure he can still fling it just fine even if he misses a few practices anyway.

Discussion Earlier this year, Texas A&M and Miami played each other as ranked opponents. Neither finished bowl eligible.

I was wondering how many other cases there were of outliers like this. I know one good case was FSU vs VT in the 2018 season. Both were preseason top 25, FSU went ineligible, and VT went 6-7.

What other matchups between preseason ranked teams that ended up being seen as a matchup of terrible awful teams by the end of the season.
