The Crimson Tide (11-1), which lost to Auburn 26-14 in its last game two weeks ago, will play No. 1 and reigning national champion Clemson (12-1) in what is expected to be the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans. It is the second time the Tigers have been the No. 1 overall seed, as they also claimed the top spot in 2015. But the 13-person selection committee that chooses the postseason field has now set a risky precedent.
Alabama (11-1) made the cut despite being idle Saturday and not winning the SEC title. "You got to look at the total body of work that the team did for the entire season, and I would say that if we lost to a team in our conference that was not ranked by 30 points, that you wouldn't be having this conversation".
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.
Saturday brought us the final games before the College Football Playoff committee makes their final poll. Ohio State won the Big Ten while Alabama did not even win its Southeastern Conference division. "And I think that that consideration based on the kind of team they had then is very important".
"As we saw Alabama play week in and week in out, the selection committee believed Alabama was the better football team", Hocutt told ESPN.
Oklahoma (12-1) overcame a stunning loss to Iowa State in October to win its third straight Big 12 title with a commanding 41-17 win over TCU.
Clemson (12-1) is making its third straight playoff appearance, but first without star quarterback Deshaun Watson. Three teams seem like locks for the playoff. Quarterback Baker Mayfield is the favorite to win the award next weekend. This is Oklahoma's second appearance, and the first time for Georgia.
That the most controversial playoff pick yet came down to these two teams made it an even juicer plotline.
