We'll be here all day, keeping an eye on which teams go to what bowl games, so come and chat with us!
UPDATE: 3:30 The full Big 12 slate of bowl games has been released. Here's a cool graphic from Max Olson to show them all.

UPDATE: 3:17 Several Big 12 bowls have been announced!
- RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL: No. 17 Baylor vs. No. 10 North Carolina
- TEXAS BOWL: Texas Tech vs. No. 20 LSU
- LIBERTY BOWL: Kansas State vs. Arkansas
- ALAMO BOWL: No. 11 TCU vs. No. 15 Oregon
UPDATE: 2:18: The full CFP Rankings have just been released, and TCU remained at No. 11 this week. It was thought that North Carolina may drop below but that wasn't the case. Of course, with the full rankings come the New Year Six matchups. They are:
- ROSE BOWL: No. 5 Iowa vs. No. 6 Stanford
- SUGAR BOWL: No. 12 Ole Miss vs. No. 16 Oklahoma State
- FIESTA BOWL: No. 7 Ohio State vs. No. 8 Notre Dame
- PEACH BOWL: No. 9 Florida State vs. No. 18 Houston
So Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida State, and Houston all capture the at-large bids, meaning TCU will probably, like we expected, be taken by the Alamo Bowl when they announce later this afternoon.
Here are the full rankings:
ORIGINAL STORY: The College Football Playoff committee announced the four teams for this season's College Football Playoff this morning, and they were the four team we all expected: Clemson, Alabama, Michigan State, and Oklahoma. What might not have been expected was the order they were in.
3. Michigan State
Essentially, Michigan State jumped Oklahoma after their riveting 16-13 win over undefeated Iowa in the Big 10 Championship. I suppose its more impressive than being on a bye week, but just barely. Of course, the speculation from many folks is that the committee didn't want Oklahoma playing in the Cotton Bowl, just three hours away from Norman.
So, Clemson and Oklahoma will face off in the Orange Bowl, with Michigan State and Alabama squaring off in the Cotton Bowl.
Again, we'll keep updating this as more bowls are announced (mostly with Big 12 teams and other interesting matchups).
