  • College Football Playoff Rankings 2018: Selection Sunday Top 25 projections

The ACC champion Tigers (13-0, No. 2 CFP) will play Notre Dame (12-0, No. 3 CFP) in the Cotton Bowl on December 29 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame are unbeaten locks.

Upon reviewing other records and statistics, including strength of schedule, "the one-loss conference champion carried the day", he said.

Washington: After a slow start to a season of high expectations, the Huskies earned their first Rose Bowl trip in 18 years with four consecutive wins, including the Pac-12 title game. The Sooners (12-1) defeated Texas to win the Big 12 title on Saturday. The Bulldogs will slip from the No. 4 spot where they started the weekend, though they should remain in the top 10 when the selection committee releases its final set of rankings on Selection Sunday. But that put all eyes on the SEC Championship between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Georgia. The Crimson Tide is the only team to advance to all five College Football Playoffs since the inaugural tournament in 2014. With the game tied and the ball at midfield with 3 minutes left, Georgia could've punted the ball and pinned the Tide deep. Hurts did the rest, capping the game-winning drive with a 16-yard quarterback sneak.

Georgia Head Coach Kirby Smart made his opinion clear saying, "it boils down to one thing". According to Westgate LV Superbook, the Bulldogs would be favored over both Oklahoma and Ohio State on a neutral field. Ohio State was stomped by Purdue midseason, however.
