  1. Winning percentage in games played within the division, including forfeits.
  2. Winning percentage against the next highest‐placed team in the division (based upon the team’s record in all games played in the Conference, including forfeits), proceeding through the division.
  3. Winning percentage against common Conference opponents.
  4. Highest CFP ranking (or the composite of selected computer rankings if neither team is ranked in the CFP rankings) following the final week of Conference regular‐season games.
  5. Overall winning percentage against FBS opponents.
  6. Coin toss.

  1. Winning percentage in games played among the tied teams, including forfeits.
  2. Winning percentage in games played against division opponents, including forfeits.
  3. Winning percentage against the next highest‐placed team in the division (based upon the team’s record in all games played in the Conference, including forfeits), proceeding through the division. (When comparing tied teams against positions lower in the standings that are also tied, those lower‐tied positions shall be considered a single position for the purposes of comparison.)
