Conference-only schedules continued to chew up several of the leading contenders in the SEC, leaving the league hinging its College Football Playoff hopes on a select few only four games into the regular season.

After a tough Saturday, the SEC has just four teams with fewer than two losses and a dwindling list of options for the national semifinals.

This isn’t to say the SEC champion isn’t a lock for the top four, or even that the conference won’t again have a case for making up half of the playoff field, especially during this unique regular season. 

And the SEC still has a monopoly on the college football spotlight. Saturday night’s meeting of No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia is one of the most anticipated games of the regular season and perhaps the most important matchup in terms of its impact on the playoff.
