Four college teams will be fighting for the national championship title in Jan.: #1 Alabama Crimson Tide, #2 Clemson Tigers, #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and #4 Oklahoma Sooners.

Undefeated Alabama looks very promising with a stellar offense and a strong defense. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Heisman trophy runner-up, rips up opposing defenses with his throwing game, averaging 200 points per game. Alabama solidified their playoff spot by beating the Georgia Bulldogs 35-28 in the South Eastern conference championship game on Dec. 1.

The Clemson Tigers have also dominated with an undefeated record; however, critics question the strength of their opponents. Clemson beat the Pittsburgh Panthers on Dec. 1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship 42-10, keeping their number two spot in the playoffs.

On Dec. 1, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish struggled with their rival, but came out on top to remain undefeated. The Southern California Trojans, with an average record of 5-7, gave Notre Dame trouble in the first half of the game, but the Irish were resilient and kept their #3 spot in the playoffs.

With a 12-1 record, the Oklahoma Sooners arguably have the best offense in college football, led by Heisman winner Kyler Murray. Murray has a pinpoint accurate throw and is one of the fastest players in college football. While the offense is powerful, the defensive side is sub-par. However, they still came out victorious in the conference championship game for the Big 12. Oklahoma beat rival Texas Longhorns 39-27. Texas was Oklahoma’s initially only loss, so they secured the fourth spot in the playoffs.

Two other teams were in competition for the fourth spot in the College Football Playoff. The Georgia Bulldogs and the Ohio State Buckeyes had strong seasons. Georgia played well against the top team in the nation, having the lead or tie for most of the game. Alabama coach Nick Saban put in backup quarterback Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter, and the Crimson Tide rolled back in to defeat the Bulldogs. Ohio State beat the Northwestern Wildcats in the Big 10 championship game 45-24, but because of Ohio State’s loss to the unranked Purdue Boilermakers by 29 points in the regular season, they did not pass the Oklahoma Sooners in the rankings.
