There were fewer telling games in Week 2, but we did see some top teams rebound and a couple of other teams prove they are more pretender than contender.
We still don't know precisely how the committee picks the final four teams, but we have learned a few things over the years. We know they like the SEC and Alabama.

With what we have learned so far, we have some idea of what teams need to do to make the playoff. Below, we ranked the top 20 teams in the country based on their chances to make the playoff.
