Saturday, June 3

Which conference championship game are you looking forward to the most?

Finally, some semblance of change is due for a college football playoff that has typically featured the same four teams: Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Alabama. Those four schools represent 20 of 28 total playoff appearances.

The rookie hopefuls, No. 2 Michigan and beloved No. 4 Cincinnati of the Group of 5, have a chance to reach the playoffs with victories on Saturday. Top-ranked Georgia has made one playoff appearance in seven years, resulting in a 2019 national championship loss to No. 3 Alabama. Meanwhile, Crimson Tide has stayed out of the playoffs only once.

All four teams are playing in their respective conference championships this weekend. A win nearly secures a playoff spot and a loss removes any of the top four, save perhaps Georgia, from consideration.
