CFP rankings: Oklahoma joins Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame in playoff

  • College Football Playoff Committee Does Sane Thing Doesn't Overthink It

Notre Dame is the first independent team to make the playoff.

Time to set the field for college football's final four.

"The protocol are guidelines given to the committee by the commissioners when they created the playoff". The larger the audience, the bigger the profits.

Even after Frost left for his alma mater, Nebraska, he continued the conversation in the offseason, though he did express he wanted an eight-team playoff and said he had a hard time backing UCF's national title claim if he had stayed at the Orlando school. "We've got to live with it", Narduzzi said. I think it's a combined 50 and one [record] of the four teams. We don't carry out our responsibilities if we don't continually evaluate.

The Wildcats will face Utah in the Holiday Bowl on San Diego on December 31, and Michigan State will play OR in the Redbox Bowl in Santa Clara, Calif., on the same day. Among this season's playoff participants, Oklahoma is closest to Northern California, about 1,400 miles.

Both teams made changes at the QB position during the season. Just look at the rankings. Ohio State, by virtue of its Big Ten Championship win over Northwestern on Saturday, will go to the Rose Bowl and play Pac-12 champion Washington. No. 8 UCF after yesterday's 56-41 victory in the American Athletic Conference championship game over Memphis, the Knights were snubbed from the CFP. The Irish aren't giving that much thought. Winning a conference championship is better than not. Those are three really good teams. The Sooners and the Cowboys will clash with opponents from the Southeastern Conference, too.

Oklahoma's conference championship gave it the edge over Georgia.

Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame are unbeaten locks.

No. 4 Oklahoma vs. They won the national championship two seasons ago.

Georgia did not deserve to receive a spot in the national semifinals. Alabama has played in them all. It is one of the reasons the NCAA basketball tournament is such a long-running hit. We came here to win the game.

"There's been no talk about a format change in the meetings of the commissioners and the presidents who manage the CFP", Hancock said. "The fact is we're in a cycle now where Alabama's on an up". Their passing game vs. Clemson's secondary will decide the ball game. By doubling the number of participants from the BCS, the playoff meant to build on that.

Still, the calls for playoff expansion are becoming louder by the year. "They understand that, and they know what we've done all year". We wanted to win the game. "Do we want to push this into the second semester?"

"Big, fast, physical", Mustipher said. "Got a lot of respect for Tom (Herman) and the job they've done". "That meant we went to our protocol".
