Just like previous years, I thought I'd simulate the playoff round by round to see what it might look like. I'm using this website to simulate the games.
The upsets abound in the first round of the 12 team playoff with 3 of the 4 lower seed teams winning. This is the sort of result that makes the playoff exciting to me. Can a team like Appalachian State or Wyoming make a run and beat some top teams.
All chalk here. But on the bright side we get some really nice matchups; an Oklahoma-Clemson rematch from last years playoff and the Washington-Penn State play in game everyone would love to see this year.
