The Crimson Tide came back from a 14 point deficit to win a game that eerily mirrored last season's national title match-up.

Big 12 - 4 (4, 14, 15, 25).

Quite ironically, against the team it beat in the semifinals last season after the Sooners avenged its lone loss in the Big 12 Championship on Saturday. Playoff selection committee chair Rob Mullens told ESPN that there was no clear favorite among Oklahoma, Georgia and Ohio State and therefore the committee went to the "protocol" which includes factoring in conference championships.

The Sooners (12-1) will face No. 1 Alabama (13-0) in the Orange Bowl on December 29 and No. 2 Clemson (13-0) plays No. 3 Notre Dame (12-0) in the Cotton Bowl on the same day.

The OU-Alabama matchup will mark the sixth meeting between the programs, with the Sooners holding a 3-1-1 lead.

The debate leading up to championship Saturday was whether Oklahoma or Ohio State might take the fourth spot if Alabama beat Georgia. "Clemson is the best football team we have played this football season". Notre Dame is in the playoff for the first time, making it 10 teams in five seasons to participate in the playoff. The Sooners and Buckeyes won their league championship games.

The long-shot University of Central Florida Golden Knights, who do not play in a Power Five conference like the other teams in contention, also won their conference championship to close out an undefeated season but were shut out of the playoff for a second straight year.

A finalist for the Maxwell, Davey O'Brien, Manning and Walter Camp Player of the Year Awards, Murray has completed 241 of 340 passes this year for a 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns to just seven interceptions (5.7-to-1 ratio) while rushing for 892 yards and another 11 scores.

"They are one of the four best teams in the country".

Not only did MI and Florida meet last season in a season-opening game won by UM, 33-17. With the game tied and the ball at midfield with 3 minutes left, Georgia could've punted the ball and pinned the Tide deep.
