A three-loss Pac 12 team would still get the auto-bid this season.

If Washington beats Utah. Washington is the highest ranked Pac 12 team. It would also mean that Michigan would almost certainly get the Big 10 auto-bid if Northwestern beats OSU, . . which seems pretty shitty since they lost twice and got de-pants by the Bucks just last week. Oklahoma is probably a lock going into Saturday . . . they could lose to UT and still be ranked ahead of them. then OU is in the playoff having lost twice to UT. If UT beats them and moves ahead of OU, then you've got three-loss UT with an auto-bid. I'm just not a fan of automatic bids for conferences or conference champions. Too likely it will result in a less deserving team getting a spot over a clearly more deserving team.
