The college football playoff committee made their decision in North Texas. That is a matchup of 11-2 teams that have played each other in the Rose Bowl seven times. Georgia put itself in position to make the playoff after a road win over Notre Dame in Week 2 and with the exception of their loss to the Tigers, the Bulldogs rolled through SEC play, winning by an average of 29 points in their seven regular season SEC victories. Conference championships are important.

Alabama is the only team to earn a spot in every College Football Playoff since the format began.

The No. 1 Tigers will face the No. 4 Crimson Tide in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, and the No. 2 Sooners will play the No. 3 Bulldogs in the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual on January 1, as announced Sunday by the CFP selection committee.

The Big Ten-champion Buckeyes will play in the Cotton Bowl on December 29 against Pac-12 champion Southern California.
