Rose Bowl powerhouse matchup announced: Oklahoma vs. Georgia New Year's Day 2018

The Committee ranked the Bulldogs No. 3 after their 28-7 win over the Auburn Tigers in the SEC Championship on Saturday.

This year marks the fourth year of the College Football Playoff, and marked the toughest decision the young CFP Committee has ever had to make.

College Football Playoff officials announced on Sunday that No. 3 Georgia will be facing off against No. 2 Ohio State on New Year's Day.

Since the loss to the Cyclones, OU went on to run the table in its final seven regular-season games.

Alabama and Clemson have collided in each of the past two national title games, splitting those matchups, while Georgia and Oklahoma have never met.

To round out the rest of the top 4, #1 Clemson, and #4 Alabama. The Bulldogs won their first nine games of the year before stumbling at Auburn on November 11. Only one team (Hawaii at 8.6 in 2006) averaged more yards per play for an entire season. Georgia has only played it once as well, 75 years ago. Oklahoma won the Big 12 championship Saturday by whipping TCU and possesses the expected Heisman Trophy victor, quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield has thrown for 4,340 yards, 41 touchdowns and five interceptions.

It's only the second time the Sooners have been selected for the Rose Bowl. Oklahoma owns a 29-20-1 all-time bowl record.
