Buckeyes, college football fans snubbed in playoff choice

Buckeyes, college football fans snubbed in playoff choice

After 13 weeks of college football and one Conference Championship Weekend, the final College Football Playoff Rankings were revealed.

After Saturday's conference championship games, the question was whether the committee would value better wins and a conference title (Ohio State) or fewer losses and perhaps a more convincing eye test (Alabama).

"I would say that if we lost to a team in our conference that was not ranked by 30 points that we wouldn't be having this conversation", Saban said in a late-night SportsCenter interview with Scott Van Pelt. The emergence of Bryant has helped push the Tigers back into the College Football Playoff.

Cotto continued to apply pressure in the seventh, but said that "something happened" to his left biceps in the round. The rapturous welcome he received upon entering the ring was repeated as he departed in defeat.

Alabama's inclusion also means the playoff has not included a two-loss team in each of its first four seasons.

Clemson, the ACC Champions, were given the number two ranking after demolishing Miami in their game on Saturday.

The culprit for the Buckeyes was a 31-point loss at Iowa on November 4, in addition to the 15-point home loss to No. 2 Oklahoma in September. Alabama rounds out the top four after losing to Auburn and missing out on the SEC Championship but getting in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year.

During his Pakistan visit, Mattis is expected to meet Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa. He recognized Egypt as a strategic defense partner for the US and its importance to the stability of Middle East.

The Crimson tide and Tigers will both be making their third playoff appearances, tying each other for the most appearances in the four-year life of the CFP. The defending national champions have made the National Championship Game in each of the past two seasons. The Sooners lost to Clemson in the semifinals following the 2015 season. "And so we played three top-five teams, and we won two of them".
