One map that explains the College Football Playoff

New, comments

One part of the country might be super interested!

The College Football Playoff announced its top 25 teams today, and not surprisingly, the four teams at the top -- Mississippi State, Florida State, Auburn and Ole Miss -- were from the South, including three from the SEC. Another team, Alabama, just missed out at sixth.

The Playoff will be played in Pasadena, New Orleans, and Arlington, but here's the map of where the current teams are located, from ESPN's Chris Hassel.

There's a lot of talk about ESPN-SEC bias these days, but as the 2012 Alabama-LSU ratings taught us, it's actually better for ESPN if the teams are spread out throughout the country. If Oregon and TCU can keep winning, then maybe the map will cover more of the country.
