This year has seen one of the tightest races to the top of the BCS standings. There isn't a question who the No. 1 team is—it's Alabama. However, after the Crimson Tide there is a logjam of teams filling the No. 2 through No. 4 spots in the BCS standings.
If this were 2014, we'd have a four-team playoff to determine the BCS champion. And in that playoff format we'd see the No. 1 team play No. 4 while No. 2 would play No. 3. Those four seeds would be determined by the final BCS standings.
However, this year, if things stay the same, we'll be stuck with two teams on the outside looking in.
So with that being said, let's play a little what if and see what a playoff between these four teams would look like this year.
