After Notre Dame’s disappointing loss to Clemson 34–10, many people are wondering who the 4th playoff team will be. The two most likely candidates are Notre Dame and Texas A&M.

There many arguments that could be made by both sides. Here are a few.

Reasons Notre Dame Should be in The Playoffs

1. Wins vs. Ranked Teams

Notre Dame has wins over #15 North Carolina and #3 Clemson. Both of those teams will be ranked higher next week.

Texas A&M, on the other hand, has a win against #7 Florida. Florida might even be ranked lower next week (if they lose to Alabama).

2. Total Wins

Notre Dame has two more wins than Texas A&M. (10 vs. 8)

3. Conference Standings

Notre Dame lost in the ACC Championship game. Texas A&M failed to even qualify for the SEC Championship.

Reasons Texas A&M Should be in The Playoffs

1. The Committee Really Likes the SEC


Notre Dame should be in the playoffs. They had a better season.
