The No. 1 Crimson Tide will play No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, while No. 2 Clemson will play No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl.

That protocol, which he recited nearly word-for-word, says that when teams are that close, certain factors should take precedence, the most notable of those being "conference champions".

"We'll treat it just like a playoff game", junior safety J.R. Reed said after the Alabama loss.

The Huskies (10-3) are in the Rose Bowl for the first time in 18 years after overcoming a disappointing start to the season with four straight wins in November, including a Pac-12 title game victory over Utah on Friday.

Alabama-Oklahoma will kick off at 7 p.m. CT on ESPN on December 29.

As players tuned into the selection show, they saw Oklahoma's name appear on the bracket in the No. 4 spot.

Three of the four spots will be easy selections barring an unexpected surprise.

Honda Passport SUV Unveiled - Pictures & Details

The Crimson Tide won its 12 regular-season games by an average of more than 35 points per game, with the closest being a 22-point win over Texas A&M in late September.

Last season they felt slighted, this year they feel plain insulted and it would not be surprising at all to see them hang another undefeated banner at their stadium.

Of course, the status of Tua Tagovailoa will be worth monitoring for this semifinal. All night, Georgia's defense had performed well against the beastly Alabama attack.

Georgia won't be headed to the College Football Playoff. Hurts did the rest, capping the game-winning drive with a 16-yard quarterback sneak. According to Westgate LV Superbook, the Bulldogs would be favored over both Oklahoma and Ohio State on a neutral field.

Oklahoma has lost to Clemson (2015) and Georgia (2017) in its two playoff appearances.

- UGA's loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship has cost the Dawgs dearly.
