The final 2014 college football rankings are sure to be chaotic with six teams having a legitimate case for a national championship bid.
Alabama dominates Missouri – Alabama destroys Missouri, 42-13, to win SEC title
Ohio State demolishes Wisconsin – Ohio State makes loud statement with 59-0 win over Wisconsin for Big Ten title
Oregon destroys Arizona – Oregon steamrolls Arizona, 51-13, to win Pac-12 title
The regular season of college football has officially come to an end, and conference champions were crowned on Saturday.
The rankings committee members were denied their hopes of seeing an upset among the top contenders as every team in the top six came away with a win, so they have a grueling decision ahead.
No. 5 Ohio State had a major statement win in the Big Ten title game against No. 13 Wisconsin as they won, 59-0, with third-stringer Cardale Jones as their starting quarterback.
Big 12 co-champions TCU and Baylor both made strong cases as TCU blew out Iowa State, 55-3. Baylor won, 38-27, against No. 9 Kansas State to finish their season with style points.
Alabama and Oregon are guaranteed to make the playoff while Florida State is expected to stay in due to being undefeated and coming off a win against No. 11 Georgia Tech.
Here is how the top four will shake out following Championship Week.
The Crimson Tide had somewhat of a slow start in the SEC Championship, but they reminded everybody that the SEC West is superior to the East with a 42-13 victory over No. 16 Missouri. Quarterback Blake Sims was nearly flawless as he completed 23-of-27 of his passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns.
The running game was also unstoppable as Derrick Henry ran for 141 yards and two touchdowns while T.J. Yeldon added another 47 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Amari Cooper caught 12 passes for 83 yards and broke the SEC single-season record for catches in a season by reaching 115. The Crimson Tide have overcome a competitive SEC West to rise to the top, and their convincing championship game win will solidify their No. 1 ranking.
