We play two ranked teams in VT and Notre Lame. Also, unless there's a complete implosion by the top teams in the ACC, the ACC Champion will be represented in the CFP. You don't just leave out the champion from the best conference in football.
No way we finish 11-0 with a win over FSU for the first time this decade, a win over NCAA lap dogs Notre Dame, and VT who is considered a solid team...then beat even a 1 loss Clemson team and get left out the playoffs at 12-0.
We would make it in over any undefeated Big 12 or Pac-12 team, or 1 loss Big-10 team
