The 2023 college football conference championship games are in the book, now all that’s left is for the announcement of the College Football Playoff field. The results from Saturday are going to make it a difficult decision for the committee that is tasked with selecting the top four teams to compete for the National Championship.
How to watch the college football playoff selection show
All eyes with interest will be glued to the TV beginning at noon Eastern time. On ESPN and FuboTv for the announcement of the four teams. For Virginia Tech fans, there is some sense of interest as whether or not Florida State is selected or not could have an impact on the Hokies bowl destination for this season.
Saturday night, without starting quarterback Jordan Travis or backup Tate Rodemaker, the Seminoles capped an undefeated season at 13-0 with a 16-6 win over Louisville in the ACC title game in Charlotte. Florida State rode their talented defense to the championship.
The first two teams selected and ranked should be very easy. Michigan should slide to the top spot after winning the Big Ten championship Saturday night, and Washington fresh off of their PAC-12 championship Friday night over Oregon are the easy two selections. Then things get very interesting.
Georgia, who was No. 1 entering the weekend, lost 27-24 to Alabama in the SEC championship game, and Texas, who rolled over Oklahoma State in the Big 12 championship game are the top two one-loss teams. Now the dilemma for the College Football Playoff committee is whether or not they think that undefeated FSU, without their top two QBs, is deserving enough, which they are, or is the committee going to take into consideration that Travis is out? That shouldn’t matter.
An undefeated Power 5 conference champion should be in over a one-loss team Power 5 conference team. That means the final spot should come down to Texas and Alabama and the Longhorns should get in by their head-to-head win earlier this season. Oh, the drama and chaos.
