It has been a roller-coaster of a year, with any number of talented squads worthy of a spot in the season-ending CFP. Top challengers by late season included defending national champion Ohio State and fellow Big Ten challengers Iowa and Michigan State, SEC power Alabama and traditional rival Florida, the ACC´s impressive Clemson, venerable Notre Dame, and the Big 12 trio of Baylor, Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.
