Final College Football Playoff Rankings
The College Football Playoff Committee just released the final rankings and the schedule for the Big 6 New Year's Day bowls, placing Georgia Tech and Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl. The possibility of Clemson playing in the Citrus Bowl was conditioned upon the Orange Bowl taking a Big 10 team. Since that did not happen, it is looking more and more like Clemson will play on December 29th in the Russell Athletic Bowl.
The ACC announced that Georgia Tech will play Mississippi State in the Orange Bowl which more than likely pushes Clemson into the Russell Athletic Bowl against a team like Oklahoma.
Note: Mississippi State jumped Michigan State in the polls which put them in the Orange Bowl.
