Iowa fans revel in keeping Ohio State out of College Football Playoff

Iowa fans revel in keeping Ohio State out of College Football Playoff”

Ohio State won the title in 2014, the first season of the CFP.

The Buckeyes were on the outside looking in of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee's final top four, losing out on that critical fourth spot to 11-1 Alabama - which did not win its division, much less conference championship. A decisive 38-3 ACC Championship victory over Miami sealed the deal for Clemson, which only has one blemish on its resume, a 27-24 road loss to Syracuse in a game in which Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant was injured.

Clemson, Oklahoma, and Georgia took care of business in their respective conference championship games on Saturday and received berths Sunday in the College Football Playoff.

For the first time, two teams from the same conference - Alabama and Georgia from the SEC - are among the final four teams. Alabama (11-1) beat the Tigers for the 2015 national title, with Clemson turning the tables last season. Ohio State was the first, being selected last season over Big Ten champion Penn State. "We'll let everybody else argue about who should and shouldn't have been, but what we know right now is that we have a great ball game coming up on January 1".

Just check out the matchups we would have been able to watch, based on the top-eight in the College Football Playoff rankings... The Seminoles subsequently lost four of its next six games to begin the season 2-5.

"You noticed that Auburn was really kind of banged up (Saturday against Georgia, running back) Kerryon Johnson couldn't play (and) he was a big part of their offense", Saban continued. "I was kind of hoping that we had those good wins".
