Our first look at the 2017 College Football Playoff is here.
On Tuesday night, the CFP selection committee announced its first set of College Football Playoff rankings of the season. We now know the top 25 teams in the eyes of the committee, along with the four teams who will control their own destiny when it comes to reach the final four.
Entering Tuesday night, it was clear that the top two spots would be between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs, the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the AP Top 25 poll, respectively.
That is exactly how it played out.
However, there was a bit of a twist with Georgia edging Alabama for the No. 1 spot.
If the season were to end today, Alabama would take on No. 3 Notre Dame in one of the semifinal matchups, while the Bulldogs would draw No. 4 Clemson. Oklahoma and Ohio State are on the outside looking in.
