Alabama's win over Georgia likely puts Sooners in College Football Playoff

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney raises the trophy after Clemson won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship NCAA college football game against Pittsburgh in Charlotte N.C. Saturday Dec. 1 2018

The team finished the 2018 regular season with a 9-3 record, including a three-game winning streak to wrap up the campaign.

Georgia's case for a spot in the playoffs was boosted by their close loss to Alabama in Saturday's SEC Championship Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney raises the trophy after Clemson won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship NCAA college football game against Pittsburgh in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday. Georgia with two losses and not having won their conference championship ended any legit debate about their inclusion.

Quarterback Ian Book proved to be the game-changer for Notre Dame's offense this season with 2,468 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, six interceptions and a 162.5 passer rating. The Irish played there in 2013 and defeated No. 22 Arizona State 37-34 in the Shamrock Series.

The Sooners closed out their season with a 39-27 season over Texas, the only team that beat them during the regular season, in the Big 12 Championship.

This is the second time that the Orange Bowl has been the site of a CFP semifinal. It's the first time Notre Dame will play in the Cotton Bowl since New Year's Day 1994.

The semifinals will be played December 29 in the Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl.

This year's College Football Playoff left little suspense about the four teams that would make the field, but that won't stop some fans from thinking the committee got it all wrong.

Oklahoma also fell to Florida in the 2008 BCS National Championship game in the same stadium. Is it Oklahoma or Ohio State (or Georgia, as some would like to assert)?

Georgia has two losses and no team has made the playoff yet with more than one.
