Georgia believes they are still a playoff team

Georgia believes they are still a playoff team

"Experience is great, for sure, but we have to play well", Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said in a conference call.

Tagovailoa hurt his right ankle when an offensive lineman stepped on it in the fourth quarter of the Southeastern Conference championship game against No. 6 Georgia.

The Sooners in the playoff will make things very interesting.

Although technically the Cotton Bowl Classic, the game will be played at AT&T Stadium - commonly referred to as "Jerry World", after Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones; the stadium has been home to the Cowboys since 2009 following the destruction of the Texas Stadium. "Now going forward, we've got a few more boxes to check".

By now, you're well aware of who made the College Football Playoff and how UCF, despite ending the regular season undefeated for a second straight year, wasn't even close to securing one of the four playoff berths.

Ohio State's consolation prize for missing out on the College Football Playoff is a classic matchup in the Granddaddy of Them All.

Alabama: 9th appearance in the Orange Bowl, 69th bowl game overall. The bowl last served as a semifinal three years ago, when Alabama beat Michigan State 38-0.

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.

Georgia was No. 4 and had an opportunity to take the debate away from the committee by upsetting Alabama, but faltered down the stretch. Saban, of course, endorsed his former defensive coordinator and conference-mate.

Notre Dame is vying for its first national title since 1988.

The committee didn't buy it. Last year, it was Ohio State fans talking about that as they were the first team out.

Time to set the field for college football's final four. "Not frustrated at all because I know we have three teams capable of winning it all, but only have four playoff slots".

Georgia might be playing for some respect of its own after only one player - cornerback Deandre Baker - was named a first-team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press on Monday. No one can reasonably say that Georgia is unequivocally better than the Sooners or the Buckeyes to the point that they are incomparable. The Bulldogs proved they could hang against the best, but it was not enough to sway the committee into making an unprecedented playoff pick.
