Sooners seeded No. 2, headed to Rose Bowl

Sooners seeded No. 2, headed to Rose Bowl

This is Georgia's first appearance in the College Football Playoff.

Top-seeded Clemson will take on Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, and No. 2-seed Oklahoma will play No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl.

As a result, the Knights likely punched their ticket to the Peach Bowl, which will serve as a delectable appetizer on New Year's Day before the CFP semifinals get underway.

Clemson and Alabama will play in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year's Day. This is the second time Navy will play in the Military Bowl, having defeated Pittsburgh in 2015 and finishing the season at #18 in the final AP and Coaches Polls that season.

Oklahoma: Won three straight Big 12 titles. Both Chubb and Michel chose to bypass the NFL for their senior seasons for a chance at winning the SEC and competing in the College Football Playoffs. "This moment right here, this is what we worked for". "It's really fantastic how far we've come".

Seventy-five years have passed since the last time Georgia went to the Rose Bowl. The Bulldogs finished off a national championship season in 1942 by beating UCLA 9-0. On the other hand, Georgia would get to play in Atlanta for the championship game.

Oklahoma Sooners earn the No. 2 in the final college football playoff rankings. The Sooners boast unsafe players at almost every skill position.

The Sooners were installed as a 2 1/2 point favorite by Westgate Las Vegas Superbook.

When assigning teams to sites, the committee places the top two ranked teams at the most advantageous sites, weighing criteria such as convenience of travel for its fans, home-crowd advantage or disadvantage and general familiarity with the host city and its stadium. 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.

So which team will make the CFB Playoff as the No. 4 seed? The Sooners handled TCU in the Big 12 Championship, and Georgia beat Auburn in the second meeting between these two teams in 2017. The Crimson Tide lost 26-14 to Auburn to end the regular season, but its top win was against an LSU team outside the top 10.

All five power conferences would be in, undefeated non-power UCF would be in (and ward off very fair accusations that the committee simply doesn't care about mid-majors), we wouldn't have to worry about whether undeserving Bama is less undeserving than undeserving Ohio State is, and the team getting snubbed would be, not a team rated by advanced stats as one of the two best in the country.
