Which teams would make a 12-team CFP bracket right now

Why wait a few years before assembling an expanded College Football Playoff group when we can do it now?! Let’s celebrate college leaders finally agreeing on something that’s good for all sports, coast to coast.

Using the current college football rankings to create a 12-team hypothetical playoff bracket based on the model adopted earlier this month by CFP executives, this 12-team model includes (1) automatic qualifiers for the six highest-ranked champions of the conference and (2) top six selections to the next six highest ranked teams. The four highest-ranked conference champions receive a second-round bye (independents are not eligible for a bye). We’ve mostly used the polls for seeding, but we’ve put more emphasis on team competition up until this point.
