Alabama was given the final spot in this year's College Football Playoff over Ohio State.

Ohio State finished the season with 11–2 with a win over Wisconsin in the BIG 10 Conference Championship but their chances were likely hurt by a loss to Iowa (7–5) in November.

Alabama wrapped up the season with an 11–1 record and did not play in the SEC Championship. It marks the first time in which the SEC or any conference put two teams in the playoff.

Alabama has played Clemson in the past two national championships and will face each other in the Sugar Bowl. Oklahoma will play Georgia in the Rose Bowl. Both games will be held on New Year's Day. The two winners will play a week later in Atlanta for the fourth College Football Playoff National Championship.
