But a Group of Five team with those types of nonconference victories, plus a strong conference record and league title, would have a chance to make the final four.

Notre Dame 4. MI 5. Would the committee hold a loss against either team, particularly with Georgia's sole defeat to this point having come on the road at No. 7 LSU (9-2)?

Michigan Wolverines tight end Zach Gentry (83) tries to block a kick in the second half against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Stadium. Boise State 24. Pittsburgh 25.
