It took seven weeks, but we finally have an idea of who the other contenders are.
The field finally has a defined scope. There is a case to be made for Penn State, but the Westgate Superbook released its national title odds at to-1 on Sunday.
At plus the field may have value, considering the odds imply over a 55 percent chance that Alabama or Clemson win the title. Our havoc ratings indicate Wisconsin, Ohio State and Penn State are the top disrupters in the nation.
The Crimson Tide have a havoc rating of just 52, but both Clemson and Alabama have a havoc allowed rating in the top The Tide also ranks 40th in limiting explosive plays, the bulk of which comes from their 74th-ranked rush defense.
