College Football Playoff picks after Week 13

For the first time in 2022, ESPN's writers have an unanimous top four to make the College Football Playoff.

Third-ranked Michigan made the biggest statement, turning a three-point halftime deficit against No. 2 Ohio State into a 45-23 rout. Michigan rushed for 242 yards in the second half, largely behind Donovan Edwards' touchdown runs of 75 and 85 yards. Edwards finished with 216 rushing yards, the second-most by a Michigan player against Ohio State all-time (Tim Biakabutuka had 313 yards in 1995).

Combined with quarterback J.J. McCarthy's three long touchdown passes, Michigan had five scores of 45-plus yards. It's the most by any team in a single game against an AP Top 5 opponent since at least 2004.

Elsewhere, USC pushed its way into the playoff discussion with a 38-27 win over No. 15 Notre Dame. Caleb Williams became the first USC quarterback in the past 25 years with three rushing touchdowns in a game.

Meanwhile, top-ranked Georgia and No. 4 TCU cruised to victories over Georgia Tech and Iowa State, respectively.

Georgia became the first school with back-to-back 12-0 starts since Clemson in 2018-19 and the first SEC program to do so since Alabama in 2008-09.

TCU had its third 12-0 start in school history and became just the seventh Big 12 team to reach the mark and the first since Texas in 2009.

With all that in mind, here's a look at how ESPN's college football reporters see the current playoff picture.
