There was visible surprise on the ESPN set when the rankings were released as most thought Ohio State would get the call.

No. 2 Oklahoma (12-1) will play No. 3 Georgia in the other semifinal, in the Rose Bowl on January 1.

Meanwhile, Big Ten champion Ohio State (11-2) remained outside of the Top 4 at No. 5 after suffering one more loss than the Crimson Tide, and what a loss it was. Alabama rounds out the top four after losing to Auburn and missing out on the SEC Championship but getting in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year.

Clemson University, the University of Oklahoma, the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama will play in the final four. They have the aforementioned Louisiana Lafayette and The Citadel next season as two of their non-conference games.

A show-cause on an NCAA coach means the coach does not escape the penalties by leaving the school where the penalties took place. Ole Miss will receive an additional bowl ban for 2018, three years of probation, as well as additional scholarship losses.

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

Conference Championship Weekend turned into a quarterfinal for the rankings, as the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12 and SEC Championship Games had the chance to unofficially determine who will be in the top four.

After months of anticipation, we have our four College Football Playoff teams. And it was a pretty significant loss at that. While the loss to Iowa State was a shocker at the time, the Cyclones finished the regular season with a respectable 7-5 record. "But I get it. Move forward and get around people you care about - your family and teammates". "At the time, that was sort of 'The Opener of the Century, ' and I think our team played well", Saban said. Teams don't play well extremely well after they play us.
