Georgia Bulldogs heading to College Football Playoff

Rose Bowl powerhouse matchup announced: Oklahoma vs. Georgia New Year's Day 2018

That sets up a Georgia-Oklahoma matchup in the Rose Bowl in the first of the two College Football Playoff semifinals on New Year's Day. The Sooners are 12-1 straight up this season, and 8-5 against the spread.

"I couldn't be more excited for our team and especially our seniors with the selection of our team to participate in the College Football Playoff", said UGA head coach Kirby Smart. For Clemson, that would be the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans where the Tigers would meet the No. 4 seed.

To round out the rest of the top 4, #1 Clemson, and #4 Alabama. Haven't won a national title since 1980. After claiming their 13th SEC crown, they're chasing their first national championship since 1980. "It's really awesome how far we've come".

The Sooners probably would have made the playoffs even if the Big 12 hadn't played its first championship game since 2010. The Bulldogs are 12-1 this season and went 9-4 against the spread. Georgia is scheduled to play a game there in 2025 against UCLA.

Nebraska names Frost as new head coach
Frost was then drafted by the Jets and played five seasons in the National Football League with New York, Cleveland and Tampa Bay. UCF has had some supporters in the College Football Playoff argument this year due to their undefeated record.

Oklahoma won its third consecutive Big 12 title on Saturday with a 41-17 victory over TCU, punctuating an incredible debut season for Riley, the youngest coach in the FBS at 34 years old.

Oklahoma and Georgia, teams that rank seventh and 11 in all-time wins, have never played in football before. Georgia also has a quality road win over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and a win over another ranked team in the Mississippi State Bulldogs. He will get another $200,000 if Georgia finishes in the top five of the final AP or coaches' poll. They will play in the Sugar Bowl. "Auburn was tremendous a year ago. Kind of seemed like a dream, kind of out there a little bit". "It will be one of the best defenses we've played here in the three years that we've been here, but a challenge we're very much looking forward to". And now, he stands two victories from winning a national championship in his first season. When Bob Stoops abruptly retired in June, Riley was promoted from offensive coordinator to the top job.

"I can always remember watching it, hearing Keith Jackson call it, and it seems like it was always a great game", said Riley, who is from Texas. And we're not talking about the 2017 campaign alone: Dating back to last season, the Sooners have won 18 of their past 19, with that sole loss coming in that shocking home defeat to the Cylcones in October. The senior became the second-leading rusher in SEC history in the conference championship game after going for 77 yards against Auburn. The Crimson Tide lost 26-14 to Auburn to end the regular season, but its top win was against an LSU team outside the top 10.

The Buckeyes' win earned Urban Meyer's team the Big Ten championship, but it may have knocked the conference out of the running for the College Football Playoff.
