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.

Realistically, Ohio State probably wouldn't have won the national championship this year, but there was a lot riding on this decision.

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.
