The LSU Tigers, No. 1 in both the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches polls, and the undefeated SEC Champions, are the top seed in the College Football Playoff.
The Sooners held off Baylor in overtime in the Big 12 championship game Saturday afternoon, and were able to jump Utah to get into the top four when the Utes fell to Oregon in the Pac-12 title game Friday night. They sit at No. 4 in both polls, and sixth in the SP+ rankings. This marks Oklahoma’s fourth straight appearance in the playoff.
It is LSU’s first appearance.
Pretty damn exciting news, and validation for the season the Tigers had, beating a record five teams ranked in the top-10 in the major polls, and putting together the greatest offensive year in SEC history.
