College Football Playoffs Seeding On The Line

In the Big Ten Championship, the Michigan Wolverines will square off against the Iowa Hawkeyes. Michigan has had a stellar season, led by their talented quarterback J.J. McCarthy, and a dominant defense. Iowa has been an awful offensive team this season, hence Michigan entering the game as a 22-point favorite. Michigan punches its ticket to CFB Playoffs once again with a win over Iowa

The Big 12 Championship features an exciting showdown between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns. Oklahoma State has been a force to be reckoned with, boasting a high-powered offense. Meanwhile, Texas is a one-loss team with a shot to sneak into the CFP if a few things shake out. For Texas to have any chance at the CFP, Alabama has to beat Georgia. The Texas win over Alabama earlier this season could propel the Longhorns into the playoffs. Most experts feel Texas will need a Florida State loss and a Georgia loss to have a chance. Texas will also need to beat OSU in a convincing fashion.
