ESPN analysts overwhelmingly favor Alabama over Ohio State for last College Football Playoff spot
Alabama and Ohio State would have gotten a chance to settle it on the field, and none of the Power 5 conference champs would have been left out.
This year however they'll meet in the semifinals at the Allstate Sugar Bowl in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Jan. 1 at 7:45 p.m. CST.
Alabama (11-1) was No. 1 in consecutive playoff polls before losing to Auburn on November 25. Alabama rounds out the top four after losing to Auburn and missing out on the SEC Championship but getting in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year. The SEC plays eight conference games, and two weeks ago Alabama took out mighty Mercer of the FCS. Alabama (11-1) beat the Tigers for the 2015 national title, with Clemson turning the tables last season. The crux of his argument: The Big Ten plays nine conference games and had the fewest matchups (three) with FCS opponents among Power Five conferences.
Alabama opened as a one-point favorite against Clemson in Las Vegas despite making the playoff as the No. 4 overall seed. 2 Auburn (10-3) - the only team they've lost to all season - with a 28-7 win Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. And it was a pretty significant loss at that.
In fairness, the Seminoles would've made more noise this year had their starting quarterback stayed healthy, but you can't convince me that would've happened to an Oklahoma, Clemson, or - dare I say it - an Ohio State. That is a matchup of 11-2 teams that have played each other in the Rose Bowl seven times. "And I think that that consideration based on the kind of team they had then is very important".
