Welcome to Before The Snap, For The Win’s college football show where we’ll break down the sport’s trending storylines, examine each week’s biggest matchups and track the College Football Playoff and Heisman Trophy races.

Headed into Week 6 of the college football season, things are getting exciting in the SEC, the Big 12 is struggling and Clemson looks like it’s going to dominate the ACC again. And the Big Ten and Pac-12 still haven’t played.

But that’s not stopping anyone from looking ahead to the College Football Playoff picture.

The four teams with the best chances to make the playoff this year are Ohio State (69.3 percent), Alabama (68.9 percent), Clemson (62.4 percent) and Georgia (47.0 percent), as of Wednesday, according to ESPN’s Playoff Predictor. The next four teams with the best playoff chances are Wisconsin (37.9 percent), Penn State (20.7 percent), Oregon (19.0 percent) and Notre Dame (16.4 percent).

As ESPN has previously noted, its Playoff Predictor is based on factors such as strength of record, number of losses, conference championships, the Football Power Index and the selection committee’s past behavior.

So what does all this mean? Are some teams overlooked or overrated? We break it down on the latest episode of Before The Snap.
