Alabama's win over Georgia likely puts Sooners in College Football Playoff

College Football Playoff Rankings 2018: Selection Sunday Top 25 projections

Ohio State finished sixth in the race for four playoff spots after winning the Big Ten title for the third time in five years, trouncing Northwestern 45-24 on Saturday night.

Despite the best lobbying efforts of Kirby Smart and Kirk Herbstreit, the College Football Playoff selection committee did NOT believe 11-2 non-champion Georgia to be a better team than 12-1 Big 12 champion Oklahoma.

The No. 1 Crimson Tide will play No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, while No. 2 Clemson will play No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl. "So we went with the one-loss conference champion".

Both bowls are scheduled for December 29, and the winners will play in the January 8 championship in Santa Clara, California.

The Sooners beat Texas for the Big 12 title, avenging their only loss behind Heisman Trophy contender Kyler Murray.

Last season they felt slighted, this year they feel plain insulted and it would not be surprising at all to see them hang another undefeated banner at their stadium. With an opportunity to play for the national championship on the line, it should be a terrific game.

The wild card was Georgia beating the mighty Tide, which could have meant two SEC teams for the second straight season. The Bulldogs beat Hawaii in a 41-10 no-contest. They were ranked over No. 6 Ohio State.

Its season-high ranking in the College Football Playoff's top 25 was No. 12, which it earned in each of the past three weeks, while its season low was No. 20.
