Clemson in 4th playoff draws Notre Dame in Cotton Bowl

Oklahoma snags 4th spot in football playoff semifinals

"We're just excited to be in the playoffs", Clemson coach Dabo Swinney told ESPN. "It was an incredible game".

"It was meant to be a national event and much of that intention is the manner it's been moved around and hasn't gone back to the same place a couple of times yet", Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Sunday, a few hours after the four-team field was unveiled. "The people in this building, you know, we play for each other, and there's going to be doubters every day". They were an unbelievable opponent. A game that was filled with stellar defensive play on both sides and saw Huskies CB Byron Murphy walk away as game MVP. "It's awesome what they've done with the schedule that they've played", Swinney said.

Clemson has never played in the Cotton Bowl, or at the home stadium of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.

While Notre Dame is the first independent team to make the playoff, the Irish went undefeated with 10 wins over Power Five teams. Clemson also is tied for second in scoring defense (13.7 points per game).

"They have been a model of consistency".

One of the most exciting times of the year is here! We did what we've had to do when there are opponents in front of us, and I've voiced that to the rest of the team as well. They were followed by No. 2 Clemson, who won the ACC Championship over Pitt, 42-10.

5 team in the College Football Playoff Rankings, but winning the Big 12 Championship was impressive enough to award them the final spot.

"There's been a national conversation for 11 months since UCF won the Peach Bowl and claimed a championship", UCF Athletic Director Danny White said yesterday after the AAC title game.

The stadium hosted the first national championship game in the CFP era four years ago and a semifinal game three years ago when Alabama beat Michigan State, 38-0. Deshaun Watson threw two TDs and ran for another score. "So we went with the one-loss conference champion". "And, again, it will be similar, right?"

After 14 weeks of action on the gridiron that started several months ago, the end-game is in sight in college football.
