The defending champion Baylor Bears come in second at 11/4 and Texas rounds out the top three at 7/1. At the bottom of the barrel are the Kansas Jayhawks and Iowa State Cyclones at 100/1.

That's five major conference champions vying for the four college football playoff spots (and you thought the playoff fixed everything). So here's two questions to discuss in the comments section.
1) Which Big XII team, ranked four or lower, has the best shot at being the conference "dark horse"?
2) Which of the five projected conference winners do you see getting left out of the playoffs?
My answers are Texas Tech and Ohio State. Tell me why I'm wrong.
