The omission has surged a rumor of financial interest involved and a connection with ESPN to be a responsible factor. 

However, speaking on ESPN, the CFP committee chairman Boo Corrigan stated, “Florida State is a different team than they were through the first 11 weeks. An incredible season. Bust as you look at who they are as a team, right now, without Jordan Travis, without the offensive dynamic that he brings to it, they are a different team.”

Nevertheless, the FSU fans dismissed his reasons, reasoning that the team could still perform well without Jordan Travis, who had a season-ending injury.
