2016 College Football Playoff Top 25: Andrew’s Week 13 Poll

What is dubbed “Cupcake Week” for many schools, it was anything but for others in the country. The 2016 College Football Playoff race has been one of the most exciting thus far.

Whether it’s in snow, rain, or bright sunshine, the 2016 College Football Playoff chaos cannot be stopped. For example, let’s take Louisville who was looking to grab the ACC’s stake in the playoffs. Houston, on the other hand, had other plans for the Cardinals on foreign ground. Add in West Virginia’s chances being completely ruined, and you have chaos on your hands.

In the South, though, Alabama looks to have a clear path to the playoffs. Coming out unscathed from the brutal SEC schedule is a feat itself. The nature in which the Tide have emerged from the SEC West is absolutely stunning. Easily, Alabama is the #1 team in the country, as evidenced by receiving ALL 61 votes in the latest Associated Press Poll. To have anyone else in the #1 slot is absolute nonsense. Alabama deserves to be in, but who else does?
