Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma are all headed to the college football playoff.

The picks were announced Sunday afternoon on ESPN. Obviously, Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame were all locks to make the playoff. It was the fourth spot nobody really knew what to expect. The Tide will play the Sooners in round one, and the Tigers will play the Fighting Irish.

There was no way the undefeated SEC and ACC champions were going to get left out. That simply wasn’t going to happen. (RELATED: The Final AP College Football Poll Of The Regular Season Is Here. Find Out Who Is Number One)

Plus, Alabama proved that even without star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, they could still come back and beat an elite team, which is exactly what happened Saturday night against Georgia.

However, you can guarantee Ohio State fans are going to be furious about getting left out after going 12-1, stomping Michigan and winning the B1G conference title game.

This is now the second year in a row that the Big Ten won’t get a team in the playoff. It’s absolutely absurd if you’re a fan of Big Ten football. It’s embarrassing on all levels.

The heads of the Big Ten might riot after this decision from the committee. This might be the spark we needed to get playoff expansion.
