College football: Six September games will determine if Texas has CFP contender in 2016

Preseason college football magazines fill the local news stands but all offer the same bleak message about glass ceilings for teams from Texas: If you’re looking for a College Football Playoff contender from the Lone Star State, you’d better set your sights on 2017, not this season.

Either that, or hope the Houston Cougars post a perfect regular-season record that provides them enough political clout, as champion of a non-Power 5 league (American Athletic Conference), to steal a spot in the CFP’s four-team playoff bracket from the winner of a blue-blood conference like the SEC, Big Ten, Pac-12, ACC or Big 12.
