You gotta love all the SEC strength of schedule nonsense though. Alabama is a very good team but they’ve not exactly played a murders row schedule to date. Arkansas State, a dreadful Arkansas program, a mediocre Ol Miss. The Ragin Cajuns from UL Lafayette, and the still have the always dangerous Citadel to come. And that is a pretty typical SEC non- league slate. And I think one of the downsides of the 4 team playoff. Why schedule a good non conference game when a loss might cost you a spot? Better to load up on Ark State and the Citadel so there is no risk.
