Which team is least likely to make the College Football Playoff?
SI.com Staff
Thursday December 1st, 2016

The final weekend of the regular season is here, and the stakes are at an all-time high. Conference titles and College Football Playoff berths are on the line from Santa Clara, Calif., where No. 4 Washington will battle No. 8 Colorado for the Pac-12 championship, to Orlando, Fla., where No. 3 Clemson will try to claim another ACC crown over No. 23 Virginia Tech. No. 2 Ohio State and No. 5 Michigan will be resting this weekend, but the rest of the top 10 of the playoff rankings will get their final opportunity to impress the selection committee. Can No. 6 Wisconsin or No. 7 Penn State use a Big Ten championship to launch themselves into the top four? Would an upset by Colorado be enough to send the Buffaloes into the national semifinals?

We'll find out the answers to those questions when the playoff field is revealed Sunday. In the meantime, all teams can control is winning their Week 14 showdowns. SI's college football experts make their picks for the weekend's biggest games:
