Sunday December 6th, 2015

The College Football Playoff is set. The Clemson Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide, Michigan State Spartans and Oklahoma Sooners are in.

In the Orange Bowl, No. 1 Clemson will meet No. 4 Oklahoma. The Tigers survived, 45–37, against North Carolina in Saturday’s ACC championship game. The Sooners are atop the Football Power Index for a third straight week; their last win came two weeks ago in commanding fashion over Oklahoma State.

The Cotton Bowl will be played between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Michigan State. The Crimson Tide took the SEC championship 29–15 over Florida, while the Spartans used a late touchdown from running back L.J. Scott in the Big Ten championship game to take down Iowa 16–13 and grab a spot in the playoffs.

Both games will take place on Dec. 31. The winners will play for the national championship on Jan. 11.
