    College Football Playoff 2015

    So the final four are announced:

    1. Clemson vs. No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl

    2. Alabama vs. No. 3 Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl.

    No real controversy, although the fact Michigan State jumped Oklahoma does rob the Sooner fans of a regional game (they would have played in the Cotton Bowl at No. 3).

    Sets up two interesting matchups -- a year ago Clemson annihilated Oklahoma, 40-6, in the Citrus Bowl. Also, a year ago, top-seeded Alabama was upset by the Big Ten Champ in the semifinals.

    Here's five thirty-eight's take on the probabilities, based on its model:

    Code:
    TEAM      	Final	Championship
    Oklahoma	66%	41%
    Alabama   	68%	34%
    Clemson   	34%	15%
    Michigan St.	32%	10%
    No love for Clemson or Michigan State -- both are two-to-one underdogs. I dunno. I think it will be Clemson vs. Alabama in the final. I think Clemson has played a tougher schedule than Oklahoma, plus having no losses.
