Notre Dame makes College Football Playoff

Ohio State basketball coach delivers delightfully weird speech about Buckeyes football playoff ranking

The Cotton Bowl is played at AT&T Stadium, which has a retractable roof.

On December 29th, top-seed Alabama will face fourth seed Oklahoma, while second seed Clemson takes on #3 Notre Dame in the semi finals.

It's been pretty clear that the consensus from most early on is that Clemson is the favorite to win the game. Notre Dame's Dexter Williams will have to be at his best for the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish to hang with the No. 2 ranked team in the nation.

"They have been a model of consistency".

"We know that was one of our goals in the beginning of the season, and now it's just checked off the list", Irish cornerback Julian Love said. "We've been on a journey here the last couple years to put our football team back in this position".

The rest of the New Year's Six bowl matchups are UCF vs. LSU in the Fiesta Bowl; Florida vs. MI in the Peach Bowl; Ohio State vs. Washington in the Rose Bowl; and Texas vs. Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Both semifinal games will be played on December 29 with the two winners advancing to the national championship game on January 7 in Santa Clara, Calif.

Coli outbreak potentially linked to farms in California, FDA says
Retailers are also being asked to discontinue selling romaine lettuce, which is why shoppers no longer see it on store shelves. However, according to CDC, 32 illnesses have been reported from 11 states, including 13 people who have been hospitalized.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney raises the trophy after Clemson won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship NCAA college football game against Pittsburgh in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday.

Clemson will be making a bowl appearance for the 14th consecutive year, adding to its current school record that began in 2005.

Georgia lost 35-28 to Alabama in what was the Crimson Tide's smallest margin of victory in a game this season.

SEC champion Alabama (13-0, No. 1 CFP), the only team that has made the playoff every year, plays Oklahoma (12-1, No. 4 CFP) in the other semifinal game December 29 in the Orange Bowl.

The first answer came a little before noon Sunday - the playoff selection committee ranked the Sooners fourth and set up a December 29 showdown with the top-ranked Crimson Tide. The Irish last played for the championship at the end of the 2012 season, when they lost to Alabama 42-14 in the BCS national championship game on January 7, 2013.

Given those struggles, it's little wonder only three ACC teams are favored in bowls: Clemson, Georgia Tech and Miami. The Irish won in 1977.
