Can anyone beat Alabama? Here’s the team with the best chance


Can anyone beat Nick Saban and the Alabama football team? Not according to the latest Football Power Index.

Alabama handled Texas A&M with ease this weekend, cruising to a 19-point victory. Meanwhile, Ohio State fell to Penn State and Michigan continued to roll over inferior competition. Alabama has been heads and tails above anybody else in the country this season and there doesn’t seem to be a team capable of putting the brakes on another National Championship.

The FPI is giving Michigan the best chance, though.

The complete FPI top 5:

1. Alabama
2. Michigan
3. Louisville
4. Ohio State
5. Clemson

The Washington Huskies are bumped out of the top 5 by Louisville and Ohio State; both teams have one loss while Washington remains undefeated. It appears a foregone conclusion that Alabama will be playing in the final game of the season, but who will play against them?

Michigan still has to play Ohio State at the end of the season. Even with a Michigan loss in that game, both teams could make it to the College Football Playoff.
