The College Football Playoff Committee could have a chaos scenario on their hands if an undefeated team should go down during the conference championship weekend.

The latest rankings showed Georgia (12-0), Michigan (12-0), Washington (12-0) and Florida State (12-0). Each team is competing for a conference championship.

He further detailed a possible wild scenario in which Alabama upsets Georgia, Michigan beats Iowa, Oregon or Washington wins the Pac-12, Florida State wins the ACC and Texas wins the Big 12.

“What the hell do you do? Herbstreit wondered.

If that’s the case, the committee members will have to have a long think and answer a ton of questions about the top four they end up choosing.
