Technically, we would not need to jump Florida to make a NY6 bowl game. The only SEC team we would need to jump/stay ahead of would be Auburn. As long as Auburn does not upset Alabama and finishes 8-4, that will not be an issue.
As far as B1G teams, we would need to jump Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Since we lost the head-to-head against Michigan, we would need them to pick up a third loss; Ohio State beating Michigan would take care of that. Since Wisconsin beat Michigan, we would also need them to pick up a third loss. Since Minnesota played a weak non-conference schedule, and would likely only have three wins against FBS teams with winning records (Penn State, Illinois, Georgia Southern), we probably would only need them to pick up a second loss. If Wisconsin beats Minnesota in the final week that would give Minnesota their second loss; Wisconsin would then play in the B1G Championship Game, where they could pick up their third loss to Ohio State. On top of that, Penn State losing to Ohio State in convincing fashion would be a bonus here since it would take some of the impressiveness out of the win Minnesota had against Penn State.
With the Pac-12 and Big 12, the situation is a bit more fluid, and depends on what the four playoff teams are in the final ranking. Let’s assume that an undefeated Clemson team, an undefeated Ohio State team, and LSU (undefeated or one loss) are the three locks for the playoffs. This leaves one remaining spot for either: Georgia, Alabama, Oregon, Utah, Oklahoma or Baylor. Personally, I think even if Baylor or Utah were to win the Pac-12 or Big 12 respectively, their weak non-conference schedules and middling opponents within their own conferences would not be a strong enough resume to get in over a one loss Alabama team who lost to LSU by 5 points and already has a strong reputation built up (whether fair or not). Now if Utah and/or Baylor were to win their conference championship games, they would take up slots in the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl respectively, pushing Oregon and Oklahoma into at-large bids, which would most definitely keep Notre Dame out of a NY6 bowl game. Keeping all of this in mind, we want Oregon to beat Utah and Oklahoma to beat Baylor for a second time. Texas beating Baylor this weekend would also be beneficial for our chances.
Now back to the SEC. We really want Georgia to beat LSU in the SEC Championship Game. LSU is a lock whether they win or not because their resume is the strongest in the country. Georgia getting in would guarantee that two SEC teams get in the playoffs. Alabama would then play in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma, and Oregon would play in the Rose Bowl against the second highest ranked B1G team. Florida would play in the Orange Bowl then, opening up a slot in the Cotton Bowl for Notre Dame to face Memphis or Cincinnati possibly.
At the same time, we want our own strength of schedule to be strong. Virginia Tech beating Pittsburgh and Virginia beating Liberty, guarantees that those teams finish 9-3 and 8-4, and one plays for the ACC Championship. Navy beating SMU, Houston, and Army to finish 10-2, Louisville beating Syracuse and Kentucky to finish 8-4, and USC beating UCLA to finish 8-4 gives Notre Dame five quality wins. Also, if Utah were to lose either to Arizona or Colorado, then USC would have the chance to play in the Pac-12 Championship Game since they own the tie-breaker after winning the head-to-head against Utah.
