Bama Clemson ND and Oklahoma Make the Playoffs

So were Clemson and Notre Dame. "The debate was deep, detailed, and occasionally contentious".

The most egregious example of this was Sunday's placement of a 2-loss Georgia team that didn't win a conference championship ahead of a 1-loss Ohio State team that did.

"I'm so proud of what they've done this season, and I know they're about to shut up the people that don't believe they're a top four team". "In the committee's eyes, the strength of schedule just didn't hold up when you look at that peer group (of contenders)".

With that being said, I just think the Tigers are the better team. The national championship game is January 7 in Santa Clara, California.

The College Football Playoff selection committee has spoken and Notre Dame is in the national semifinal. The Sooners (12-1) are the only one of the bunch with a blemish. I will continue to buy into the fact that no other team has been blown out by a middling team and made it. There were four exactly, a flawless fit for a four-team bracket. "This team put in all the work and deserve to be playing in the playoff". Unbeaten UCF finished eighth in the final rankings, nowhere to be found in the committee's playoff discussion.

In the Orange Bowl, there is a matchup between two storied franchises.

The Quick Lane was ninth in the ACC's bowl selection order, and the 7-5 Yellow Jackets defeated three teams - Virginia, Virginia Tech and Miami - that were picked ahead of them. It's the first time in 36 years that FSU didn't qualify for a postseason bowl.

They are all undercard events to the CFP, though.

The Buckeyes beat Northwestern Saturday night 45-24. Might OSU make the Texas Bowl, fall to the Liberty Bowl or maybe go lower?

This will be the sixth meeting between Alabama (13-0) and Oklahoma (12-1). It's the fifth straight bowl game for the Wolfpack and an opportunity to reach 10 wins for the first time under head coach Dave Doeren.

"It's gonna be one of the best games of the season".

"There was a lot of debate about Oklahoma, Georgia and Ohio State", said OR athletic director Rob Mullens, the committee chairman. "I can assure, you, every combination was discussed in the room". "So we went with the one-loss conference champion". Click right here to get started immediately.
