Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia and Alabama make College Football Playoff

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.

The Tigers will play against the Crimson Tide on January 1, this is the third year in a row the teams will have a game against each other.

OSU finished with a record of 11-2.

Alabama and Clemson have collided in each of the past two national title games, splitting those matchups, while Georgia and Oklahoma have never met.

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.

'Access Hollywood' fires back at Trump: 'The tape is very real'
In a short video statement hours after the video surfaced , Trump said, "I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize". A New York Times piece published on Saturday delves into President Trump's un-shocking decision to endorse U.S.

Alabama was chosen despite not winning even its division title. "I was kind of hoping that we had those good wins". Teams don't play well extremely well after they play us. I think we had three wins against the top 16 teams in America.

Clemson won it's third straight ACC Championship this season, beating Miami 38-3 Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma (12-1) and Georgia (12-1) each moved up a bit to solidify their places in the playoff at No. 2 and 3, respectively, with sound victories in their respective Big 12 and Southeastern Conference championship games.

The four teams that will compete for a national championship in college football this year are set, and to the surprise of no one, there was some controversy regarding the team that got the fourth spot. The Tide's last appearance was in the CFP's inaugural season where the Crimson Tide suffered a 42-35 loss to the Ohio State.

Clemson is back in the playoff for a third-straight season. Don't put too terribly much in the seeding of the teams - it's important for jersey colors and who calls the coin toss - because this should be about as evenly-matched of a semifinal as you'll find. Also, they are the teams the rest of college football loves to hate, the teams that always seem to get the benefit of the doubt in the rankings.
