On Dec 2nd at 12:30 PM the College Football committee Announced the top 25 teams. Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma were announced as the top 4 teams in the nation. Many factors come into play when choosing the top college football teams in the nation such as record, conference, point differential in losses, and strength of schedule. The Top 3 spots were almost solidified based in the fact that they were all undefeated. The 4th spot was between Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Georgia.

Oklahoma and Ohio State both won their conference and finished 11-1. Ohio State lost to Purdue 49-20, Purdue is not a very good football team. They had very close games all season long.  Oklahoma’s lone loss coming to the Texas Longhorns.

Just like the Buckeyes the Sooners did not have very convincing wins. Georgia finished with a 10-2 record both losses to very good teams, LSU and Alabama. Georgia was the clearly the better team overall, but they did not have a conference championship. Many people believe the best four teams should make it; therefore, Georgia should have made the #4 spot.

The Committee decided it would not be fair to put Georgia in since they didn’t win a conference championship, and also had two losses.
