Sadly, the 2019 college football regular season has come to a close, but that also means the time has arrived to find out who will be competing for the national championship. The College Football Playoff field will be unveiled on Sunday, with four obvious teams likely to be included in the heralded top four with only questions surrounding the order needing to be answered.
The selections themselves should be easy. No. 2 LSU handled No. 4 Georgia 37-10 in the SEC Championship Game and made a strong case to be the No. 1 seed. Ohio State, currently No. 1, needed to rally to beat No. 8 Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game. No. 3 Clemson throttled No. 23 Virginia 62-17 to secure its spot. Finally, No. 6 Oklahoma should be in after beating No. 7 Baylor for the second time this season, 30-23 in overtime.
The drama, really, is finding out who's going to be No. 1. We will find out starting at noon ET on Sunday with the CFP Selection Show, which will air live nationally on ESPN with a simulcast being streamed online on the ESPN App. The top four teams are expected to be announced at around 12:15 p.m., but that will not be when you learn about every bowl game.
The New Year's Six matchups (Cotton Bowl, Orange Bowl, Rose Bowl, Sugar Bowl) will be announced at 3 p.m. ET. Also announced then will be the start times for the semifinal games in the Fiesta Bowl and the Peach Bowl. Following that will be the remainder of the entire bowl slate.
