Clemson-Alabama, Oklahoma-Georgia set for playoff semis

  • SEC review Alabama win

Ohio State was ranked fifth by the CFP, Wisconsin was sixth and Auburn was seventh.

The final College Football Playoff rankings were released on Sunday morning following the completion of the conference championships and three conference champions made the final four, Alabama was added to the playoff while Big Ten Champion Ohio State was excluded.

Alabama remained one of the favorites to win the championship even after its loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl that brought its postseason fate into doubt. Which teams make it to the National Championship Game?

The great Alabama-Ohio State debate wasn't the only big controversy. Clemson is making its third appearance. Oklahoma and Georgia will meet in the Rose Bowl semifinal a few hours earlier.

The Buckeyes beat an undefeated Wisconsin team in the Big Ten Championship on Saturday. The Tigers entered the week at No. 2.

This is the first time a team from the Big Ten Conference did not make the playoff.

Realistically, Ohio State probably wouldn't have won the national championship this year, but there was a lot riding on this decision. The conference title didn't sway the committee enough to vault the two-loss team ahead of the one loss team for the second-straight season. However, their losses to Oklahoma (31-16 at home) and Iowa (55-24 on the road) haunt them.

"Over the course of the year, as we saw Alabama play week in and week out, our rankings show when we start with a clean sheet of paper each and every week that the selection committee believed that Alabama was the better football team", Hocutt said. If so, Mayfield will be the third player to go from winning the Heisman on to the playoff, joining Oregon's Marcus Mariota in 2014 and Alabama's Derrick Henry in 2015. This is Oklahoma's second appearance, and the first time for Georgia. The Seminoles subsequently lost four of its next six games to begin the season 2-5.

Alabama (11-1) made it 4-for-4 in the playoff, the only team that has made them all. We say likely and probably because the bowl assignments weren't immediately revealed when the top four was. Clemson-Alabama will take place the same day in the Sugar Bowl.
