College Football Playoff field: Alabama vs. Oklahoma; Clemson vs. Notre DameDecember 2, 2018
This year's College Football Playoff field will feature three things old and one thing new.
Alabama and Clemson are the top two seeds after completing unbeaten regular seasons. The Crimson Tide now have made the field in all five seasons of the current system that decides the college football championship. After missing out on the inaugural final four, this is the fourth consecutive berth for the Tigers.
What's new to the playoff this year is Notre Dame. After an unbeaten run in their 12 games, the Irish are making their first appearance. They are the third seed and will meet Clemson in the Cotton Bowl.
The drama from the committee came with the fourth choice. There were three possibilities: Big 12 champion Oklahoma, Big Ten champion Ohio State and Georgia.
Each had outstanding seasons. The Sooners and Buckeyes went 12-1. The Bulldogs went 11-2, but narrowly fell to Alabama in the SEC championship game.
In the end, it was Oklahoma that got the spot and a date with the Crimson Tide in the Orange Bowl.
