College Football Playoff

For college football fans, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! Shortly after the Christmas holiday, college football fans will be treated to the best that college football has to offer CFP website.  This year’s college football playoffs, or CFP, promise to be as exciting as last year’s games.   Although controversy will always be a part of the college football team selection process, it’s hard to make a straight face argument about this year’s line-up.   Clemson University took the number one seed by going undefeated and defeating Florida State, Notre Dame, and the University of North Carolina along the way. The Tigers will face off in the Orange Bowl against a very tough University of Oklahoma team, who took the number four seed. Oklahoma suffered its only loss against Texas in week five. Since that time, however, the Sooners have posted very impressive wins over Baylor, TCU, and Oklahoma State. Meanwhile, number two University of Alabama will face number three Michigan State University in the Cotton Bowl.   Alabama might be the most controversial team to crack the top four. Although they do play in the perennially tough Southeast Conference (SEC) and are one of the best-coached teams in the country, many argue that this year’s Crimson Tide team faced a relatively easy schedule. They did have to face Ole Miss but lost to the Rebels at home. Michigan State, on the other hand, suffered its only loss to Nebraska (by 1 point) and the Spartans had to face the University of Oregon, Michigan, Ohio State, and Iowa to earn their spot in the top four.   The winners of these two semi-final games will face-off in the National Championship game to wrap up the college football playoffs.  The game will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on January 11, 2016. So, who’s the big winner? College Football fans, of course!
