Alabama joins Clemson, Oklahoma and Georgia

Alabama joins Clemson, Oklahoma and Georgia

Ohio State* didn't make the College Football Playoff, and the Buckeyes' loss to 7-5 Iowa is why they won't play for a national championship.

Alabama (11-1) was No. 1 in consecutive playoff polls before losing to Auburn on November 25.

Granting the Crimson Tide a chance to compete in the playoff just encourages the nation's perennial bullies - Ohio State could later be one of them - to optimize their schedule for blowout wins over more exciting games.

The Sooners knocked off previous No. 11-TCU (10-3), 41-17, earlier Saturday, in Dallas, while the Bulldogs rallied from an early deficit to take revenge on previous-No.

Alabama remained one of the favorites to win the championship even after its loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl that brought its postseason fate into doubt. This determined who will make the College Football Playoff, along with the other 21 teams that fill out the top 25. Clemson is making its third appearance.

After 13 weeks of college football and one Conference Championship Weekend, the final College Football Playoff Rankings were revealed. This is Oklahoma's second appearance, and the first time for Georgia.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett threw touchdown passes and two interceptions in the win against the Badgers.

In fact, the top six teams were identical across all three ranks. The Buckeyes went on to win the national championship that year. Well, we found out the answer Sunday afternoon. And the selection committee chose to put in the Crimson Tide, leaving OSU out. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.
