As we learned a few hours ago, the College Football Playoff field is officially set. And there’s not a whole lot of surprises to be had.
Alabama will play Cincinnati while Georgia will play Michigan with a national title game spot on the line. Notre Dame and Ohio State just missed the cut.
But what does the rest of the College Football Playoff ranking look like? A short while ago, the committee released its full, final top 25 rankings.

There’s not a whole lot of debate to be had here. Whether you agree that Cincinnati is good enough to be in the College Football Playoff, they won all of their games and beat Notre Dame in the process.
No two-loss team has ever made the College Football Playoff and that trend continued this year at the expense of teams like Ohio State.
The College Football Playoff also revealed the major bowl game participants.
ACC champion Pitt will play Michigan State in the Peach Bowl while Oklahoma State and Notre Dame play in the Fiesta Bowl. On New Year’s Day, Utah and Ohio State go toe-to-toe in the Rose Bowl, while Ole Miss and Baylor play in the Sugar Bowl.
