Georgia's College Football Playoff Chances According To FiveThirtyEight


We’ve said it a lot but we’ll say it again.  The Georgia Bulldogs control their postseason fate despite Saturday’s 36-16 loss at LSU.  With hope still alive for Jake Fromm and company, there are plenty of ways to make the College Football Playoff. However, one thing remains constant – winning out.

Using FiveThirtyEight’s recently launched model, we look at a handful of potential scenarios that alter Georgia’s chances to make a run in the postseason.  The model takes just about everything into consideration, including remaining opponents and home field, while projecting each team’s odds to win their conferences and make the playoff.

If Georgia wins out: 

If Georgia loses to Florida:  

There are so many scenarios to play with thanks to FiveThirtyEight, so we will only include the Bulldogs’.

If you want to see Georgia’s playoff odds after potential losses by other ranked teams, then you can try the system out yourself!

As far as we are concerned, “just win baby” seems appropriate for the Dawgs.

(Though a couple losses by the likes of Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, and Notre Dame cannot hurt).
