College Football Playoff teams set; Big Ten not included

Alabama hung on against rival Georgia to win the SEC, Clemson routed Pitt in the ACC and Oklahoma topped Texas in the Big 12.

New Year's Six bowls will not be announced until 3 p.m., but there's a likely destination based on the dynamics of selection.

Ed Salmons, vice president of risk at the SuperBook at Westgate in Las Vegas, said Tagovailoa's injury had no impact on the 14-point spread, reasoning that either the Crimson Tide star would play or backup Jalen Hurts would receive enough reps leading up to the game to be prepared against Oklahoma's 111th-ranked defense.

Georgia has two losses and no team has made the playoff yet with more than one.

By falling to Alabama, Georgia recorded its second loss, making it tough for the selection committee to include the Dawgs over teams with one loss and championships in a Power Five conference. The Bulldogs beat Hawaii in a 41-10 no-contest. "That's all what we're going to be thinking about". Alabama and Clemson are the third and fourth teams to be double-digit favorites in a playoff game, semifinal or final.

Oklahoma, Georgia, and Ohio State all had numbers to support a spot in the CFP, according to ESPN.

Georgia had three Top 25 wins (Florida, Kentucky and Missouri), but the 36-16 regular-season loss served as its detriment. Fox 8 will keep you updated on the decision.

After examining the bodies of work for Oklahoma, Ohio State and Georgia, the committee decided that none of the three teams was "unequivocally better" than the other, selection committee chairman and University of OR athletic director Rob Mullens told ESPN.
