ESPN's Blind Team Test Shows OSU's Strength

Take this blind team test to see which team is most deserving to be considered by the College Football Playoff committee as it prepares to release its rankings.

This comes courtesy of ESPN's College Football Final of which I have become a ridiculous habitual viewer. Although I actually enjoyed Lou Holtz and former Washington Redskins lineman Mark May and some of their silliness compared to current hosts Joe Tessitore and Joey Galloway this season.

However, in lieu of Fox Sports Southwest dropping the Big 12 Live postgame show, ESPN College Football Final is the only end of the day and early morning offering with credibility in recapping the day in college football. They had an interesting blind team test leading toward the CFP committee's first top-25 rankings coming out on Tuesday.

Here are the blind team résumés (try not to look to the answers at the bottom of the page) and pick the team you think is best deserving. (Note: FPI is ESPN Football Power Index teams.)

Team A
Strength of Record: 12th
Strength of Schedule: 70th
Record vs. ESPN Top 25 FPI: 0-0
Record vs. ESPN Top 50 FPI: 1-0

Team B
Strength of Record: 8th
Strength of Schedule: 74th
Record vs. ESPN Top 25 FPI: 0-0
Record vs. ESPN Top 50 FPI: 3-0

Team C
Strength of Record: 9th
Strength of Schedule: 71st
Record vs. ESPN Top 25 FPI: 1-0
Record vs. ESPN Top 50 FPI: 1-0

Pick your team.

Drumroll please.
