Georgia, Alabama make four-team playoff

Georgia, Alabama make four-team playoff

No. 1 Clemson emphatically claimed its spot in the College Football Playoff with a 38-3 victory over No. 7 Miami for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.

Clemson University, the University of Oklahoma, the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama will play in the final four. They went on the road to beat rival SC 34-10 on November 25 and then beat Miami 38-3 in the ACC championship game on Saturday.

After months of anticipation, we have our four College Football Playoff teams. Oklahoma and Georgia will most likely face off in the Rose Bowl (official bowl alignments haven't been announced, but Clemson likely gets the Sugar Bowl) in a game that should be an absolute banger. While it took an 11th hour decision by the committee to keep Alabama's playoff streak alive, the Crimson Tide make the playoff for the fourth consecutive year. And it was a pretty significant loss at that.

Oklahoma (12-1) overcame a stunning loss to Iowa State in October to win its third straight Big 12 title with a commanding 41-17 win over TCU.

Wenger: Mesut Ozil showed what he can do
Turan has failed to cement a place at the Nou Camp and been told by coach Ernesto Valverde he does not figure in his plans. On Lacazette's half-time withdrawal: "It is an injury, it looked like a groin injury so he might be out for a while".

"If we lost to a team in our conference by 30 points, we wouldn't be having this conversation", Saban said via 247Sports. "But I get it. Move forward and get around people you care about - your family and teammates".

Saban also re-emphasized Alabama's season-opening win over what was then-No. The Seminoles subsequently lost four of its next six games to begin the season 2-5. "I was kind of hoping that we had those good wins". SEC victor Georgia, who took down Auburn Saturday is in third of the final four. "And so we played three top-five teams, and we won two of them".

If this system was in place, let's see how the top eight teams would work in head-to-head matchups, determining a National Champion.
