5 teams that would get crushed in the College Football Playoff

The college football regular season is almost wrapped up, so it's only right that we take stock of which teams might find their way into the College Football Playoff. Besides Alabama, it seems like every other school in the top 10 doesn't quite know how things will shake out when the final rankings are announced.

In light of the ambiguity, we've taken the time not to choose which teams will make the cut, but instead which teams would get destroyed if they made the College Football Playoff.

Check out the five teams below:

5. Washington

Washington suffered its first loss of the season last week at the hands of USC, and looked pretty average doing it. The offense is explosive and the defense looks good, but only because the Huskies have been playing average to sub-par teams all year. Up against the likes of Ohio State or Alabama, this team would get embarrassed.

4. Colorado

Believe it or not, Colorado still has a chance to make the College Football Playoff, albeit a fairly slim one. However, in the unlikely circumstance the Buffaloes are able to make the CFP, they too, would get the same reality check as the Huskies. Colorado already lost to Michigan 45-28 this year, I'd expect the same if the Buffaloes and Buckeyes had another go.

3. Penn State

Penn State would get destroyed in the playoff. I know the Nittany Lions beat Ohio State earlier in the season and all, but this is the same team that just last week almost lost to Indiana. The Hoosiers committed five turnovers and held a 24-10 lead at one point. I'm still convinced this team would get blown out against Alabama or an Ohio State rematch. They're incredibly overrated.

2. Wisconsin

Wisconsin defense? Great. Wisconsin offense? Bad. This team simply can't put up enough points to compete with the big boys. The defense is stellar and is responsible for keeping the Badgers in the game, but the offense leaves a lot to be desired. In seven of ten games the Badgers have been unable to muster more than 23 points. That's not going to get it done.

1. Clemson

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. How could I put Clemson here? The wins against Louisville and Florida State were far from impressive, and the offense still looks like it hasn't figured itself out. The Tigers probably deserve to go to the CFP, but I'd be surprised if they won a game.
