There were only six Big 12 teams that went to bowls a year ago, but this will be the third time in the seven seasons since going to a 10-team league that at least eight will play in postseason games. Miami is on a two-game losing streak, but gets the berth after being the highest-ranked Atlantic Coast Conference team that is not part of the College Football Playoff. The SEC Championship Game was a de facto play-in game. After claiming their 13th SEC crown, they're chasing their first national championship since 1980.

"There's great defenses in that league", Oklahoma first-year coach Lincoln Riley, who moved up from offensive coordinator, said on ESPN.

Georgia earned a spot with its first SEC title since 2005 under second-year coach Kirby Smart, capped by a 28-7 victory over Auburn in the conference championship game on Saturday. Eight games have hit the under, while five games have gone over.

Baker Mayfield and No. 2 Oklahoma were happy to have another game, even with the potential consequences. "It's really nearly like when you watch Brett Favre back in the day".

The bowl lineup falls into place with the selection of the teams participating in the College Football Playoff.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer concedes the one-sided nature of the Buckeyes' 55-24 loss at Iowa outweighed his team's quality wins in the eyes of the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Auburn was responsible for Georgia's only loss, a 40-17 defeat on November 11, but the Bulldogs avenged it in the SEC title game.

41 - Oklahoma's point total in its 41-17 win over TCU in the Big 12 Championship.

I dunno. We've already run into the issue of whether this is just too long a season for amateur athletes, but if there's a way to make this all work for the players - say, by increasing their compensation and care in order to accommodate for the extra work - then sure. On average, I designated about 2.9 teams per year as "obvious" title teams. OU beat Washington State 34-14 in the 2003 Rose Bowl. In 1943, Georgia topped UCLA 9-0. That game was at the Rose Bowl, although it wasn't the official Rose Bowl game, which was between Ohio State and OR that season.
