The stage is set for the College Football Playoff.
#1 LSU: After their dominating performance against now #5 Georgia, they deserve to be the #1 team in the country. Joe Burrow showed why he should be the #1 overall draft pick throwing for almost 350 and 4 touchdowns.
#2 Ohio State: Could have stayed at #1 if they played better in the first half. Down 21-7, OSU made the proper adjustments to avoid a potential upset to now #8 Wisconsin. Justin Fields struggled a lot even though he almost threw for 300 yards. Part of that was most likely because of his knee but he ultimately got the job done.
#3 Clemson: Like we all expected, Clemson steamrolled now #24 Virginia. Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, and Tee Higgins all put on a showing. More importantly for Etienne and Higgins, they made their cases as to why they should be first round picks this year.
#4 Oklahoma: Oklahoma did a good job of making sure Mims had no presence in this game. He finished with 0 receptions. Jalen Hurts made his case for why he deserved the Heisman and why experience matters. Hurts stayed calm and collective on their overtime drive, scoring a touchdown to secure their playoff spot.
#1 LSU will take on #4 Oklahoma in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl and #2 Ohio State will face #3 Clemson in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl. Both games will be on December 28th. Stay tuned for my predictions and pre-game breakdown in a few week.
