Cincinnati isn’t one of the four best college football teams in the nation — and we all know it.

But that doesn’t mean the Bearcats shouldn’t be in the four-team playoff. In such an imperfect system of choosing the four playoff teams, Cincinnati checked every box. They took on Power 5 opponents, they won their conference championship, and they’re the only undefeated team in major college football.

What about Baylor, the Big 12 champion?

Who’d you pick if your life depended on it: Texas A&M or Cincinnati?

None of it matters. The Bearcats are in. Go ‘Cats.
