The College Football Playoff was announced on Sunday. Clemson will take on Alabama while Georgia will play Oklahoma.
That means that this is the first time that one conference has gotten two teams into the College Football Playoff field. The PAC-12 and the Big Ten will not have a team represented in the playoff. USC won the PAC-12 and Ohio State won the Big Ten.
Alabama will meet Clemson for a third straight season but this is the first time it isn’t in the national championship game. Clemson won last year’s matchup but Alabama won the year before.
This is the first time that Georgia is in the College Football Playoff. Alabama has played in all four playoffs now. Oklahoma will be appearing in its second College Football Playoff. This will be Clemson’s third straight.
Both playoff games will be played on January 1. Georgia and Oklahoma will play in the Rose Bowl, while Clemson and Alabama will play in the Sugar Bowl.
