For the first time in the short history of the College Football Playoff, there are two teams from one conference among the final four. That's due to Clemson, Auburn, Oklahoma and Wisconsin taking No. 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively, entering Saturday's action. Alabama was a slight favorite over Clemson and Oklahoma, with Georgia trailing behind those three teams. Alabama (11-1) beat the Tigers for the 2015 national title, with Clemson turning the tables last season.
Just check out the matchups we would have been able to watch, based on the top-eight in the College Football Playoff rankings... Clemson entered selection day with eight wins over teams with a.500 or better record, including victories over Auburn and Miami. But Wisconsin lost 27-21 to The Ohio State as Bucky slipped to 12-1. The Tide's last appearance was in the CFP's inaugural season where the Crimson Tide suffered a 42-35 loss to the Ohio 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".
Alabama remained one of the favorites to win the championship even after its loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl that brought its postseason fate into doubt.

As a result, there was a pretty reasonable consensus across the college football polls for Badger football.
