The Aggies made their case for the College Football Playoff, but came up one spot short because of a 52-24 loss to Alabama as their only blemish on a 9-1 SEC record. And somehow North Carolina is here instead of Coastal Carolina, BYU, Louisiana, Indiana, or plenty of other deserving teams. The Heels did finish with a very impressive 62-26 win over the Miami Hurricanes, but they’ve still got three losses.
