Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama make College Football Playoff field

This year, the committee bypassed the Buckeyes to take Alabama, which, like Ohio State in 2016, failed to win its own conference division.

The NCAA selection committee voted in Alabama, with an 11-1 record, over Ohio State, with an 11-2 record. Teams like Penn State, TCU, USC, Wisconsin, Auburn and Miami were all around the top 10 in November and had a case to be a top-four team at some point.

Ohio State won the Big Ten conference championship with a 27-21 victory over previous No. 4 Wisconsin (12-1) late Saturday, but also had one more loss than Alabama.

A two-loss team has never made the College Football Playoff.

Georgia is the first non-Alabama SEC team to make the College Football Playoff.

Sugar Bowl COO Jeff Hundley called the matchup a "home run" for the bowl game which serves as the Championship game qualifier for the second time since the College Football Playoff's inception in 2014.

Bryant has been excellent in the six games since the Syracuse loss, completing 125-of-186 passes (67 percent) for 1,303 yards, nine touchdowns and just two interceptions.

The Tigers will play against the Crimson Tide on January 1, this is the third year in a row the teams will have a game against each other. I think we had three wins against the top 16 teams in America. Oklahoma won the Big 12 championship Saturday by whipping TCU and possesses the expected Heisman Trophy victor, quarterback Baker Mayfield. Unfortunately for them, their lack of a championship will be a factor for them, as well as their lack of big wins.

The Crimson tide and Tigers will both be making their third playoff appearances, tying each other for the most appearances in the four-year life of the CFP.
