Nick Saban declared a spot for Alabama in the College Football Playoff after Saturday’s convincing win in the SEC Championship.
“I would be surprised if anybody has any doubt whether we should or should not be in the playoff,” Saban told reporters.
Alabama isn’t undefeated like some of the other top contenders, losing to Ole Miss earlier this season. However, Saban basically made it clear that those other contenders don’t play in the SEC.
“Our league is a tough league,” he said. “We beat each other up.”
Alabama is 12-1 after Saturday’s 29-15 win over Florida.
