Rose Bowl 2017: Known Info Before Final Playoff Rankings Reveal

College Football Playoff: Who's in?

"I think it's awesome that it's in the Rose Bowl, so that you get to go out to the Granddaddy of Them All and play in a venue that a lot of these kids in the southeast don't get an opportunity to go to", Georgia coach Kirby Smart said.

Oklahoma will take on Georgia in the College Football Playoff. That's the third-longest active streak in the nation, trailing only Florida State (36) and Virginia Tech (25). Their best wins are over LSU and Mississippi State.

Oklahoma played in the Rose Bowl once before - on January 1, 2003, beating Washington State 34-14. In the AP media poll, Alabama received 1,307 points to Ohio State's 1,300. That is the most points scored against TCU all season.

Quarterback Jake Fromm was brilliant throughout the season by completing 63.0 percent of his passes for 2,173 yards and 21 touchdowns against for interceptions.

Meyer's team finished the season with an 11-2 record despite its tough schedule.

Needless to say, the Bulldogs' defense will have their hands full with Mayfield.

The playmaking signal-caller hogs most of the headlines - and deservedly so.

"We didn't have any problem moving the ball against SEC defenses", Riley quipped on November 6, responding to a question about Big 12 criticism, and referencing the Sooners' 35-19 win over Auburn in last season's Sugar Bowl.

39 - Number of seconds combined for two Oklahoma touchdown drives in the third quarter of Saturday's Big 12 Championship. And Oklahoma has plenty of options when Mayfield throws as Mark Andrews, Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb each boast 40 or more receptions, 700-plus yards and at least six touchdowns.

The Bulldogs are particularly good against the pass, allowing just 158.3 passing yards.

While the college football world argued about the committee's decision on the fourth team in the playoff, nobody doubts the credentials of the two stellar programs getting together in this matchup. But the Sooners haven't had much trouble with the league in that same span, going 7-3 against SEC programs.

Offensively, Georgia football averages 34.9 points and 433.6 total yards (170.1 in passing and 263.5 in rushing) per game. The last spot is likely to come down to Alabama or Ohio State.

It has been quite a debut season for Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley.

Just like Bob Stoops won at Oklahoma in 2000.

Saturday's victory was Oklahoma's second over TCU this season. That feat has been accomplished only twice since the inception of the Associated Press poll in 1936 - by Michigan's Bennie Oosterbaan (1948) and Miami's Larry Coker (2001).
