College football playoff committee went with chalk. I expect to see Bama vs Clemson part four in Santa Clara in a month.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) December 2, 2018
Clemson"s first trip to Cotton Bowl since 1939. Played Catholic school in that game also, a 6-3 win over Boston College in Clemson's first bowl game.— Tim Bourret (@TimBourret) December 2, 2018
The CFP committee got it right: 1. Alabama 2. Clemson 3. Notre Dame 4. Oklahoma. Ohio State made strong case closing with Ws over Michigan and Northwestern but bad loss to Purdue. Georgia worthy of discussion but lost twice, to LSU and Bama backup QB. Now, expansion likely looms.— David Haugh (@DavidHaugh) December 2, 2018

Everyone talked about round 4 of Alabama vs Clemson. We will have round 4 of Clemson vs. Notre Dame. Difference is the later will take 42 years.— Tim Bourret (@TimBourret) December 2, 2018
In 5-year history of @CFBPlayoff, Alabama and Clemson have alternated as No. 1 seeds. Bama in 2014, 2016 & 2018; Clemson in 2015 & 2017— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) December 2, 2018
