Georgia, Cincinnati win last two playoff spots against Notre Dame – .

No one is surprised, are they? We all predicted it at the start of the season. Alabama’s No.3 will most likely be the top seed in the college football playoffs when the new CFP rankings are released and the clashes are announced on Sunday.

This is the result of a 41-24 dismantling of No.1 Georgia, who had been the most dominant team in college football this season so far, in the SEC 2021 Championship. Due to the dominance of Georgia in the regular season, she’ll still be in the CFP and likely be the No. 3 seed.

Alabama are expected to travel to the Cotton Bowl and face the only other undefeated team to start the weekend. The Cincinnati No.4 finished a perfect 13-0 season with a victory over Houston No.21 in the AAC Championship game. The Bearcats are expected to be the No. 4 seed as the first team in a Group-Five conference to compete in the CFP.

Michigan’s No.2 won the Big Ten Championship Game by dismantling No.13 Iowa. The Wolverines are expected to retain their No.2 seed in the CFP, earning a berth in the Orange Bowl semi-finals against Georgia. Michigan was one of four favorites to win its conference championship games this weekend.

Saturday got off to a flying start when the Oklahoma State No.5, previously screened as a playoff contender, missed half a yard to win the Big 12 Championship Game. Instead, No.9 Baylor won the Big 12 title, knocking out the Cowboys from the CFP but netting a spot for the Bears in a New Years Bowl Six. Baylor will represent the Big 12 in the Sugar Bowl, with Oklahoma State likely ending up in the Fiesta Bowl against Michigan State’s No.11.

At one point on Saturday, it looked like Notre Dame No.5 might be heading for the playoffs following the loss to Oklahoma State. Alabama spoiled that by knocking out Georgia, so the Fighting Irish will likely end up in the Peach Bowl instead against the No. 15 ACC champion Pittsburgh.

With the SEC’s top two teams screened at the CFP, the 8th Ole Miss will likely take the SEC’s place in the Sugar Bowl against Baylor.

The Utah No.17 hit his Rose Bowl ticket on Friday with his second blowout from the Oregon No.10 in the past three weeks. The Utes will face the Ohio State No.7 in what will be Utah’s first-ever trip against everyone’s grandfather.

For those who think there are too many bowling alleys, ESPN disagrees. The network, which controls most of the bowl schedule, worked with the NCAA this week to get approval for a 42nd bowl game so that all bowl-eligible teams have a game to play in the playoffs. The game will be played in Texas. That’s all we know at this point.
