It is the policy of this publication to never rank teams with a loss in front of teams without a loss. The editor recognizes that some teams with more talent that already have a loss may pass many of these unbeaten teams by the end of the FBS season. The process tends to work itself out over the course of a season.  Only TWO teams in the FBS division remain in the ranks of the unbeaten.   Both unbeaten teams, Clemson and Iowa, should now have a clear path to a playoff berth as long as they win their remaining games.  Even though the FBS Playoff Committee will probably rank Alabama second,  at least America will have the opportunity to see whether or not that is indeed the case.  It is at this point that the editor of this publication becomes pleased that no undefeated teams are going to be left out of a deserved shot at a national title.  True, several one loss teams are going to be unhappy at being left out of the Final Four, but hey, THEY HAVE A LOSS.
