Buckeyes, college football fans snubbed in playoff choice

Alabama head coach Nick Saban joins Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for

The culprit for the Buckeyes was a 31-point loss at Iowa on November 4, in addition to the 15-point home loss to No. 2 Oklahoma in September.

The NCAA selection committee voted in Alabama, with an 11-1 record, over Ohio State, with an 11-2 record.

Confetti fell on the Ohio State buckeyes late Saturday night after topping previously unbeaten Wisconsin 27-21 in the Big Ten Championship Game. No. 3 Georgia. The Sooners beat TCU in Saturday's Big 12 Championship Game while Georgia took down Auburn in the SEC title game.

Saban also re-emphasized Alabama's season-opening win over what was then-No. I think we had three wins against the top 16 teams in America.

"We had a loss".

This is the first time a team from the Big Ten Conference did not make the playoff. Don't put too terribly much in the seeding of the teams - it's important for jersey colors and who calls the coin toss - because this should be about as evenly-matched of a semifinal as you'll find.

They are two of college football's flagship programs, rich in both tradition.

Wisconsin finished in sixth place in the College Football Playoff rankings.

In the Top 25 released earlier Sunday, Alabama was fourth by a mere seven points over No. 5 Ohio State, but the committee's process is not the same as the traditional polls.

Realistically, Ohio State probably wouldn't have won the national championship this year, but there was a lot riding on this decision. The final spot came down to Penn State and Washington and the Huskies won out.
