  • ESPN’s FPI names the Top 4 teams ahead of the College Football Playoff selection

Ohio State missed out on the College Football Playoff on Sunday, with Alabama claiming the No. 4 spot instead of the Buckeyes. The 11-1 Crimson Tide were off on Saturday while Ohio State, 11-2, beat previously-undefeated Wisconsin for the Big Ten title Saturday night. Devin Singletary ran for 164 yards and three touchdowns and Florida Atlantic beat North Texas in coach Lane Kiffin's first season.

Alabama is the second consecutive non-champion to make the field. Ohio State was at No. 8. We'd also get one more weekend of great college football matchups, and who doesn't want that? Georgia and Oklahoma will play in the Rose Bowl in the other semifinal.

"Two wins over top-four teams this year, another blowout win against a (No.) 12 team in America", Meyer told ESPN. The Tigers entered the week at No. 2.

Even though Alabama did not win their division in the Southeastern Conference, the playoff committee had set a precedent in 2016 by allowing Ohio State into the playoffs, even though the Buckeyes did not win their own division in the Big Ten. Plus, the Sooners have one of the most impressive victories of the entire college football season, a 31-16 rout of Ohio State in Columbus. They went on the road to beat rival SC 34-10 on November 25 and then beat Miami 38-3 in the ACC championship game on Saturday.

Alabama remained one of the favorites to win the championship even after its loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl that brought its postseason fate into doubt.

This is the first time a team from the Big Ten Conference did not make the playoff.

"I'd say, 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 told Van Pelt.

Clemson is back in the playoff for a third-straight season.
