OU faces Georgia at the Rose Bowl in CFB Playoff

Ohio State Buckeyes players celebrate as coach Urban Meyer holds up the trophy after defeating the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten championship game at Lucas Oil Stadium

This year marks the fourth year of the College Football Playoff, and marked the toughest decision the young CFP Committee has ever had to make. Oklahoma won the Big 12 championship Saturday by whipping TCU and possesses the expected Heisman Trophy victor, quarterback Baker Mayfield.

I like the matchup against Oklahoma because even though quarterback Baker Mayfield is the best player in the nation, Georgia matches up well physically and can control the game with its rushing attack. Oklahoma had allowed 31 points or more five times during the season, so holding TCU to 17 points is a remarkable performance. The Sooners made a statement to start the season with a dominant win in Columbus over Ohio State. Led by Outland Trophy finalist Orlando Brown, Oklahoma also boasts an imposing offensive line and a surging star in sophomore running back Rodney Anderson.

Both teams have almost flawless records at 12-1. It would be the Bulldogs' third game in Atlanta this season after wins over Georgia Tech and Auburn.

Prior to last night, the Dawgs were ranked sixth by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, but a decisive victory against Auburn in the SEC Championships helped Kirby Smart's team leap up to the top four. The Bulldogs are 12-1 this season and went 9-4 against the spread.

Earlier forecast: Georgia over Oklahoma; Clemson over Alabama.

Oklahoma and Georgia, teams that rank seventh and 11 in all-time wins, have never played in football before.
