With 2 Key LSU Starters Out for Fiesta Bowl UCF is Licking Their Chops

No. 5 Georgia was the first team left out of this year's playoff, while Ohio State came in at No. 6.

The Nittany Lions were idle on championship weekend and are still awaiting their bowl destination.

In the end, Mullens said, Oklahoma earned the nod at No. 4 because it was "a one-loss conference champion with a dynamic offense, and their one loss was a close game to a ranked team at a neutral site", referring to Texas.

The College Football Playoff Committee will announce the four College Football Playoff teams today at 12:30PM ET on ESPN and despite losing the SEC Championship, Georgia and a lot of the college football nation believes the Dawgs belong in.

Alabama-Oklahoma will kick off at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN on December 29.

Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith wins US Senate race in Mississippi
Hyde-Smith defeated Espy, a former congressman and US secretary of agriculture, 53.9 percent to 46.1 percent on Tuesday. He was handed a 30-count indictment for taking improper gifts as Secretary of Agriculture under President Bill Clinton.

The final spot went to Oklahoma who beat Texas by 12 to avenge their three-point loss in the regular season.

Notre Dame is in the College Football Playoff for the first time in its brief five-year history, while the Tigers will play in their fourth straight after winning the ACC championship the last four years.

The Crimson Tide struggled the majority of the game, trailing in the second half by as many as 14.

Backup Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts had a comeback in mind, however.

Of course, the status of Tua Tagovailoa will be worth monitoring for this semifinal. All night, Georgia's defense had performed well against the beastly Alabama attack. Georgia had an argument because they lost by seven in the final minute after leading the entire game, but a two-loss team that isn't a conference champion isn't getting in over one-loss conference champions. The LSU Tigers beat the Bulldogs by 20 in October.
