Georgia is headed to Pasadena.

Clemson and Alabama will play in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year's Day.

It's only the second time the Sooners have been selected for the Rose Bowl. The Bulldogs finished off a national championship season in 1942 by beating UCLA 9-0. They lead the nation in total offence with 583.3 yards per game, including a whopping 8.44 yards per play. Sunday's selection lifted Georgia out of a tie with archrival Tennessee, which has been to 52 bowls.

There are six New Year's Six bowl games with 12 spots to fill. Georgia is making its 21st consecutive bowl appearance, which ranks as the third longest active streak in the country.

Oklahoma: Won three straight Big 12 titles.

The last time Oklahoma played in the Rose Bowl, against Washington State in the 2002 postseason, the Crimson and Cream rolled to 38-17 victory, and quarterback Nate Hybl was named the Most Outstanding Player in the game.

Oklahoma will take on Georgia in the College Football Playoff. Just outside of the Top 4, #5 Ohio State and #6 Wisconsin. No. 7 Auburn No. 3 Georgia vs. It was Oklahoma's only setback, after all.

It's hard to overstate how good Baker Mayfield has been this season. Mayfield has completed 71 percent of his passes for 4,340 yards, 41 touchdowns and five interceptions this season.

Needless to say, the Bulldogs' defense will have their hands full with Mayfield.

But that brings us to how the Big 12 just screwed itself at its own expense because it felt it needed to have a conference championship game. But he's far from the only offensive weapon the Bulldogs will have to worry about.

Oklahoma and Georgia, teams that rank seventh and 11 in all-time wins, have never played in football before. The first two touchdowns were to tight end Mark Andrews.

"I couldn't be more excited for our team and especially our seniors with the selection of our team to participate in the College Football Playoff", said UGA head coach Kirby Smart. The Sooners made a statement to start the season with a dominant win in Columbus over Ohio State.

Oklahoma has won its past four matchups versus SEC teams, a streak Georgia will look to snap. Despite the absence of an injured Deshaun Watson, No. 18 Clemson handed unranked OU one of its worst losses in the Bob Stoops era, hammering the Sooners 40-6. The win resulted in a national championship for the Red and Black.
