Georgia (11-2) dropped a spot to fifth and Ohio State (12-1) remained sixth in the selection committee's final top 25 released Sunday.

"Clemson is the best football team we have faced this season and they will probably win a national championship in my opinion", Narduzzi said.

Penn State football checked in at the No. 12 spot in the College Football Playoff committee's final top 25 rankings of the regular season. They took on the top-ranked Crimson Tide, whose closest game all season was a 22-point victory over Texas A&M in September. The Sooners (12-1) defeated Texas to win the Big 12 title on Saturday.

The Irish will get a chance to avenge that loss and reach the national championship game for the first time since 2012, when they fell to Alabama, 42-14. The top four teams are expected to be announced at around 12:30 p.m., but that will not be when you learn about every bowl game.

Backup Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts had a comeback in mind, however.

The Bulldogs also did their part to help Bama. Clemson running back Travis Etienne has scored a school-record 21 rushing touchdowns in 2018 while Notre Dame's Dexter Williams has rushed for 941 yards in eight games and scored 12 touchdowns. All night, Georgia's defense had performed well against the beastly Alabama attack.

Making matters more hard for Georgia, the Sooners and Ohio State - both of whom have one loss - won their conference championships by double digits.

Georgia last appeared in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in 2008, when it was in contention for a BCS National Championship as a two-loss team. Ohio State beat Northwestern.

- UGA's loss to Alabama in the Southeastern Conference championship has cost the Dawgs dearly. The Bulldogs beat Hawaii in a 41-10 no-contest.
