The big debate over the last 24 hours was between the Sooners, Georgia and Big Ten champion Ohio State, but the committee ultimately ruled in favor of the Big 12 champs.

Big 12 - 4 (4, 14, 15, 25).

Alabama earned the top seed, coming from behind to knock off SEC East champion Georgia in yesterday's dramatic SEC title game, 35-28.

Not only did MI and Florida meet last season in a season-opening game won by UM, 33-17.

Making matters more hard for Georgia, the Sooners and Ohio State - both of whom have one loss - won their conference championships by double digits. The team's other loss on the season with by 20 points at LSU. The Tide and Tigers capped ideal seasons with conference championships Saturday, while the Irish are independent and finished their flawless season the previous week with a 24-17 victory over the University of Southern California.

Oklahoma got revenge over Texas, the only team to beat it during the regular season, 39-27. "Clemson is the best football team we have played this football season". Murray has led a historic Oklahoma offense that averages almost nine yards a play while Tagovailoa's two interceptions in the SEC championship game matched his season total through the first 12 games of the season.

Orange Bowl: No. 1 Alabama vs.

Tagovailoa suffered two injured ankles in the Georgia game as backup quarterback Jalen Hurts led Alabama to a comeback win.

He could carve up an Oklahoma defense that has been pretty bad throughout 2018.

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 freshman Lawrence has shown why he was a five-star recruit.

Why they won't win the national championship: "No team has ever completed a 15-0 season". College football fans know all about Clemson's star-studded defensive line.
