Georgia, Oklahoma to Play New Year's Day Rose Bowl Game

Georgia, Oklahoma to Play New Year's Day Rose Bowl Game

Conference champions Oklahoma from the Big 12 and Georgia from the SEC slid into second and third spots in Sunday's final playoff ranking, but the real surprise was at No. 4, where Alabama beat out Ohio State.

The two winners face off January 8 in Atlanta for the National Championship. He mentioned he got his number changed and that he was a fan of the "creativity" he heard from the Georgia faithful.

But over the course of the year, the Oklahoma D has produced considerable evidence that it knows when the big games are. New Year's Day in a matchup of 12-1 teams. However, those scheduling issues can be dealt with relatively easily by rolling out these changes in a few seasons so that now existing game contracts don't have to be canceled. And for the first time ever, Georgia will play Oklahoma.

The Sooners have never played the Bulldogs (12-1).

That was before everyone realized that QB Baker Mayfield would have a transcendent season meriting serious consideration for the Heisman Trophy. Ultimately, the fact that Clemson and Oklahoma won their conference title games tipped the scales over the one-loss Badgers.

Auburn was responsible for Georgia's only loss, a 40-17 defeat on November 11, but the Bulldogs avenged it in the SEC title game.

The problem is, however, that every year since the playoff system was first used, there have been more than four teams deserving to compete for the national championship.

Auburn (10-3): The Tigers scored impressive wins over No. 3 Georgia, No. 4 Alabama, No. 17 LSU and No. 23 Mississippi State, while dropping an early-season game to No. 1 Clemson and the SEC title game to Georgia.

As a player who has made headlines for some of his on-field antics directed at opponents, he understands it's not personal - it's just about winning. Tacking on two more wins not only would deliver an eighth national championship for the Sooners in Lincoln Riley's first year as head coach, but also a school record 14-win season.

Just like Bob Stoops won at Oklahoma in 2000. In 2014, TCU was dropped from 3 to 6 in the final rankings, even with a 55-3 win on the final week of the regular season over Iowa State.
