He needs too....and the entire B1G does as well. I'm sure Bama will be in the Playoff again, and would love to play either Clemson or OSU. Let's see if Clemson runs off with the Trophy like OSU.... The loser of FSU/Bama almost HAS to run the table. There is a few scenarios with the other Major Conferences (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12, SEC) where a 2 Loss ACC/SEC Champ could still get in, but almost all would involve the #4 seed and the team bumped would have to be a weak 1 loss Big 12 champ....this scenario requires a 2 loss Notre Dame.
