I'm not holding my breath for the committee to give BYU any love even if they do thump CCU.

If BYU does win big, the CFP will be forced to admit they were wrong. Question is, what is the easier admission? That you underranked BYU, or that you overranked CCU? I think they are just as likely to say, "Geez, we really thought CCU was good, but we overestimated them based on what a #13 team did to them."

I think this game will piss them off just by happening. Not because of any threat to this year's NY6 or this year's four-team playoff, but because just by agreeing to this game BYU has already sent an arrow at the heart of the CFP cabal's argument for continuing to limit access. Their loudest reason for keeping the playoff, and the money, limited to four teams is the idea that we can't fit a bigger playoff system in because of logistics. Teams need time to prepare for opponents and to make arrangements.

BYU just killed that argument dead. Less than three days notice to get across the county and play a ranked opponent? No problem.

I can't think a cartel is going to reward that.

There needs to be an outcry to replace the committee to something independent.

More like the CFP committee and P5 Conference Commissioners brought up on RICO charges.

This was worst case scenario. Now the committee can pat themselves on the back for getting BYU right while everyone else got it wrong. This loss validated the committee's willingness to ignore anything outside of their conferences.

(just don't bother asking about CCU's ranking....)
