Alabama's win over Georgia likely puts Sooners in College Football Playoff

As players tuned into the selection show, they saw Oklahoma's name appear on the bracket in the No. 4 spot.

Congratulations, you made it to the end of the 2018 college football season (save for the most important game of the year - Army-Navy next Saturday on CBS, of course).

UF rose one spot to No. 10 this week in the rankings, announced Sunday morning.

The game will be played at the Orange Bowl in Miami. The other semifinals game will pit No. 2 Clemson vs.

Oklahoma beat Texas in the Big 12 championship game on Saturday.

Why they will win the national championship: "Not only will the Crimson Tide be making their fifth straight trip to the College Football Playoff, they will be doing so with perhaps the best team Nick Saban has ever assembled".

The four teams chosen to compete in the College Football Playoff have been revealed.

The Crimson Tide struggled the majority of the game, trailing in the second half by as many as 14.

Instead, Georgia opted for a fake punt, which the Dawgs botched, handing Alabama the ball with primo field position and plenty of time on the clock. The redshirt junior quarterback leads the nation in total offense (school-record 4,945 yards), passing efficiency rating (would-be FBS-record 205.7), yards per pass attempt (would-be FBS-record 11.9) and yards per completion (16.8; tied).

It could be argued that Georgia still deserved to be in the playoff, given they were the only team to put up a scrap against Bama, but it was always going to be hard for Georgia to get into the playoff without an SEC title. They were ranked over No. 6 Ohio State. Ohio State was stomped by Purdue midseason, however. The Bulldogs lost a dramatic Southeastern Conference championship game to Alabama on Saturday while the Buckeyes won the Big Ten championship.
