The Championship week is over, we have our winners, and now it’s playoff time. The Committee reunited on Sunday, and decided which are the four teams that will face each other to find a spot in the National Championship.

The first team to earn a spot was Oklahoma, as the Sooners clearly defeated TCU. They were shortly followed by Georgia and Clemson, both emerging with solid victories, respectively against Auburn and Miami. The last place was contended by Big 10 champions Ohio State and 11-1 Alabama, with the committee choosing the latter for the spot no. 4.

Consequently, we’ll have the third Clemson-Alabama game in the span of three years in the Sugar Bowl, while the Sooners and the Bulldogs will play in the Rose Bowl. The committee produced a 25-team ranking, with two other Big 12 teams in it.
