Alabama positioned to become 3rd wire-to-wire AP No. 1

The Associated Press - December 5, 2016 10:29 am

Alabama will play Washington and Ohio State is set to face Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinals.

The selection committee stayed with the same top four as it had going into championship weekend, leaving out Penn State even though the Nittany Lions won the Big Ten championship and beat Ohio State earlier in the season.

The unbeaten Crimson Tide is in the playoff for the third straight season and is the top seed for the second time. They will play the fourth-ranked Huskies in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 31.

No. 2 Ohio State is making its second playoff appearance and No. 3 Clemson is in for the second consecutive season. The Buckeyes and Tigers will meet at the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona, on Dec. 31.

Oklahoma will take on Auburn in the Sugar Bowl as the Big 12 champs. Oklahoma State faces Colorado in the Alamo Bowl. Arkansas will play Virginia Tech in the Belk Bowl. Tulsa will take on Central Michigan in the Miami Beach Bowl. Arkansas State will also take on Central Florida in the Cure Bowl.
