Oklahoma snags 4th spot in football playoff semifinals

Might OSU make the Texas Bowl, fall to the Liberty Bowl or maybe go lower?

The No. 3 Fighting Irish (12-0) will take on No. 2 Clemson (13-0) in the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on December 29th. But we know what we're going to get.

Following the formula that we have always known, the top four should be some order of Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma, which it is.

The wild card was Georgia beating the mighty Tide, which could have meant two SEC teams for the second straight season.

"All they did was punch their ticket into the opportunity in the Playoff to win a National Championship, so now it's go-time", Kelly said.

Many believed the tightly contested loss was still enough to put Georgia in the playoff, but the selection committee though otherwise, as they granted Oklahoma the No. 4 seed. "Can't wait to watch them play!" Unbeaten UCF finished eighth in the final rankings, nowhere to be found in the committee's playoff discussion.

Washington: After a slow start to a season of high expectations, the Huskies earned their first Rose Bowl trip in 18 years with four consecutive wins, including the Pac-12 title game.

The debate leading up to championship Saturday was whether Oklahoma or Ohio State might take the fourth spot if Alabama beat Georgia.

Although both offenses are dominant, the defense is what separates the two teams. Saban, of course, endorsed his former defensive coordinator and conference-mate. Ohio State was the first team out last season and again appears to have gotten squeezed because of a lopsided loss to an unranked team.

You can make your argument for Ohio State's wins over Oklahoma's, but the committee only has a few rules and one of them is that Ohio State better not get blown out by an average team, and the Buckeyes broke that rule for the second year in a row.

"That's what Notre Dame is all about", graduate student offensive lineman Sam Mustipher said. Notre Dame's Dexter Williams will have to be at his best for the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish to hang with the No. 2 ranked team in the nation.

The Pac-12 was never in the discussion, with its champion Washington finishing 10-3.
