Here's what an 8-team College Football Playoff would have looked like

The 2018 College Football Playoff Is Set, With Alabama Getting In Over Ohio State

While the loss to Iowa State was a shocker at the time, the Cyclones finished the regular season with a respectable 7-5 record.

The opening matchups consist of a rematch of the last two National Championship's in (1) Clemson vs. (4) Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, while (2) Oklahoma will meet (3) Georgia in the Rose Bowl.

After the field was announced Sunday, Iowa fans took pleasure in knowing their team's blowout win was the reason Ohio State missed out on the playoff.

The Bulldogs will play against the Sooners on Jan.1.

The College Football Playoff National Championship Trophy awaits its presentation after the College Football Playoff National Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers on January 9, 2017, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL. Clemson won the game 35-31.




Alabama is the only team to appear in all four years of the playoffs. The Badgers trail The Ohio State by 138 points in the AP Poll and 136 ranking points in the Coaches Poll. Oklahoma's resume only improved since then, with wins over Oklahoma State, TCU (twice, including in the Big 12 Championship), and West Virginia.

Clemson won it's third straight ACC Championship this season, beating Miami 38-3 Saturday night.

Bryant has been excellent in the six games since the Syracuse loss, completing 125-of-186 passes (67 percent) for 1,303 yards, nine touchdowns and just two interceptions. I think we had three wins against the top 16 teams in America.

Perhaps the most newsworthy item is that the Big Ten and Pac-12 were shutout of the College Football Playoff. 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.
