College Football’s Selection Sunday

This post will be updated throughout the day to keep up with Oklahoma’s College Football Playoff destination and thoughts following it from around the country

1:52 UPDATE

Selection Sunday in football is more than just for the Playoff. According to Brett McMurphy, Oklahoma State is heading to the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida (old Russell Athletic Bowl):


11:40 UPDATE

Alabama made it in as the No. 4 team in College Football and will play Clemson in the Sugar Bowl.


11:35 UPDATE

Oklahoma is the No. 2 team in the College Football Playoff. They will head out to Pasadena and play against the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs.


Clemson, Oklahoma, and Georgia know they are in. Others like blue bloods Ohio State and Alabama (and those who actually think USC has an argument) do not. This is the first College Football Playoff selection since the initial one that will end with some controversy. In 2014, TCU fell from No. 3 to No. 5 after Florida State and Ohio State won their conferences. The Committee used Ohio State’s 13th data point and domination in the conference championship game as reasons for the jump.

Well, this year will be testing their rationale of the past. Ohio State is sitting at No. 8 heading into Sunday. Alabama sits at No. 5. Will Alabama’s lack of a presence on Championship Sunday hurt them? Has Ohio State done enough since the 31-point (and gave up 55 points if you haven’t heard) loss to Iowa on November 4th? How much does being a conference champion mean to the College Football Playoff committee? These are all questions that will be answered today.
