All-SEC title game on horizon? Alabama gets nod over Ohio St

The committee protocol states conference championships are to be considered it the teams are close, like a tiebreaker. The Buckeyes lost twice, including an embarrassing 31-point loss at unranked Iowa, but have the more impressive set of victories.

It was a hard decision for the committee, considering that Ohio State captured the Big 10 title Saturday. They also started the season 11-0 and fell a game short of the SEC Championship game. Clearly you had to slide Wisconsin behind The Ohio State.

Now that we know the four teams in the playoff, the wait begins for the semifinal games. Ohio State is one of the few teams to interrupt the Tide's championship machine during the Saban era, beating the Tide in the semifinals in 2014 on the way to a national title. But Wisconsin lost 27-21 to The Ohio State as Bucky slipped to 12-1.

The Buckeyes beat an undefeated Wisconsin team in the Big Ten Championship on Saturday. It would be a shock for any of them to not be in the playoff picture. Coach Nick Saban told ESPN he trusted the committee would come to the right conclusion.

"I really do believe based on the total body of work that our team really deserved to be in", Tide coach Nick Saban said in an ESPN interview.

All the best reaction as England draw Belgium, Panama and Tunisia
The draw stirred fond memories for Southgate of playing for England against Tunisia at France 98, a match they won 2-0. Asked for his memories of that game, he said: "The goal Beckham scored!" "Panama are very happy with this group".

The reigning national champion Clemson Tigers earned the first berth in the playoffs, and will have the opportunity to win back-to-back titles. The Badgers trail The Ohio State by 138 points in the AP Poll and 136 ranking points in the Coaches Poll.

"But I get it", he said. The South Point opened the game pick 'em but moved to Alabama -1 after taking sharp bets on the Tide, sports book director Chris Andrews confirmed in a text message to Omnisport. Which teams barely made the cut? Alabama has dominated college football for a decade since Saban took over. The ACC gets $10 for Clemson in the playoff and Miami in the Orange Bowl.

Georgia (12-1) and Oklahoma (12-1) have never played. The Pac-12 gets $8 million for teams and the American Athletic Conference gets $4 million of UCF in the Peach Bowl.

Every year the commissioners meet to discuss the playoff and Scott said he doubts this year's selections will change the agenda.
