Playoff announced:

1. Bama vs. 4. Washington
2. Clemson vs. 3. Ohio St.

Still waiting for other bowls to be announced. However, it does look like Auburn will likely face Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.
Clemson ohio state will be the best game of the entire playoff

Don't look for Sarkisian to be the next OC at Bama when Kiffin leaves.  Had an incident on the Atlanta trip apparently.

I have no score prediction but I can say that I feel like Alabama will win again. I just think they will get to Watson and outscore when all is said and done.

I could be biased though. I am a South Carolina Gamecock / SEC fan.

I'm hoping Clemson wins, but I don't think they will. Bama wins by around 14-17 points in a fairly high scoring game. Clemson will score, but it won't be enough.

I think early on Bama will be a bit slow out the gate. They will pick up steam by the middle 2nd quarter or 2nd half.

I can't really pick because there is bad blood involved here with the 5 point loss last year. Clemson likely want it more. Lets see if their talent is good enough to beat a team that could compete against weaker NFL teams.

I'd be okay with a Clemson win purely because Alabama has won too many titles recently but you never should doubt Nick Saban, so I think they'll lose again. Watson likely will have a big game again but I wouldn't be surprised if he throws a pick 6, he is good but he's too turnover prone.

If Clemson wins tonight, recruiting from in-state just got a lot more harder for Gamecocks.

We are so screwed now! Recruiting just took a MAJOR hit. Heck of a game, but Bama needs to find another answer at QB. Hard to say it, but, congrats to the Tigers.

Bama will be back. Clemson will be out for a couple of years. Everybody in the media wanted us to lose. They got their wish. Hurts will get better. He is very young. Clemson was a senior team. Also Clemson showed a new way to play offense. Take out the corners. If I am an offense coach. Start teaching it until the rule is changed. Easy scores that way.

I'm not so sure Hurts getting better is an automatic thing. he didn't get any better this year . Normally you get better as the year goes on .That wasn't the case . He is a horrible passer

Hurts is young. Watson was not a good passer his first year either. Clemson wo Watson is huge. Watson is a Cam or Tebow. Difference maker. Of course at Cleveland it want matter. I would be crying too. FSU wins Acc next year. Clemson 2-3 losses next year. Every title team has to have luck to win it all. Bama has had their share. Clemson getting by NC State was the sign. Au & Bama will win west next year. East who knows. Maybe Ky.

Well they missed out
It was a great game but way too long.  The games will be shortened in the near future.
