Georgia, Michigan, Texas Christian University and Ohio State are the top four teams in the final Associated Press Top 25 College Football Poll.
Georgia Bulldogs Secure SEC Championship
The Bulldogs will compete for their second straight national title. The team finished undefeated in regular season, going 12-0 and kept the momentum rolling to secure the Southeastern Conference championship.
The defending national champions dominated in the SEC championship game, coming out on top over LSU 50-30.
Quarterback Stetson Bennett led his team to victory, throwing for 274 yards and was 23-for-29 on passing. The quarterback also threw a season-high four touchdown passes.
Also, after a blocked LSU field goal attempt, defensive back Christopher Smith ran 96 yards for a touchdown, while the Tigers sat back and watched.

While TCU fell in overtime to Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship, the team stayed at No. 3 in the AP Poll. It is set to play Michigan.
After the Horned Frogs’ narrow 31-28 loss to Kansas State, it was questionable whether the team would make playoffs. However, the selection committee kept TCU at No. 3, edging Alabama out of the top four.
This selection for the College Football Playoffs is TCU’s first in program history.
