    Fans Reaction to College Football Playoff Selections

    It was announced Sunday that Michigan was the top team in the playoffs. The Washington Huskies were the second-ranked team in the playoffs. Coming in third was the Texas Longhorns. The fourth-ranked team brought some controversy as the Alabama Crismon Tide took the last spot after upsetting the number one Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game.

    What made the Alabama selection get questioned by fans was the Florida State Seminoles going undefeated and winning the ACC Championship Game Saturday. The concern was that without quarterback Jordan Travis being healthy for Florida State, the Seminoles might not be as competitive as Alabama would be as they are healthier.

    Travis himself took to social media to defend the ‘Noles.

    This sparked a lot of fans talking about their disappointment that Florida State was left out.

    Some fans believed the committee got the right four teams in the College Football Playoff.

    There were even those who were calling for the new playoff format should have been brought in earlier.


    The 12-team playoff format will begin in the 2024 season as this will be the last season of the four-team playoffs.

    Now, with the College Football Playoffs set, the Michigan Wolverines will face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide playing in the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day at 5:00 pm EST. The second playoff matchup will be the Washington Huskies against the Texas Longhorns in the Sugar Bowl, which will be played on the same day at 8:45 pm EST. Both games will be broadcast on ESPN.
