All championship games have been played. The College Football Playoff selections have been made and the bowl game selection show took place on Sunday to give everyone their hopes for the holiday season.

Alabama is expected to stay in the top spot after defeating Georgia in the SEC Championship Game.

The committee still needs to determine who will get the fourth spot, and it will likely be between Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Georgia.
