Bama to Play Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl & FSU vs the Ducks in Pasadena

The College Football Selection Committee has spoken.  Alabama is still hanging on to the number one spot and will play fourth place Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day.

The second and third place spots go to Oregon and Florida State, respectively.  Their match-up will the in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl.

The winners of those to match ups will play each other.  Here at gridirongirl we are hoping for an Alabama versus Oregon matchup!

I think the board got most of this placement right.  What I don’t understand is why weeks ago they jumped TCU to number three, to only in the end, drop them completely out.  I said weeks ago on twitter that I did not believe TCU could hang in the top four.  However, TCU fans disagreed and now I almost feel bad for them that they got their hopes up by the committee just to have them dashed when it came down to what really mattered.

No one knows what was going on in the minds of the committee, but after all is said and I done, I believe they got it right.
