The announcement of which four teams will compete in this year's college football playoffs is coming Sunday around 12 p.m. Eastern live on ESPN. The Clemson Tigers have likely secured the top seed with a 12-1 season, and teams including the Oklahoma Sooners, the Georgia Bulldogs, the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Alabama Crimson Tide are vying for the remaining spots.

"Our charge is very simple," said selection committee chair Kirby Hocutt on Saturday: "to come in and select the four very best teams for selection into the semifinals for the playoff, and that's what we'll do. We'll base our discussions and our debates over what has transpired over the 12 or 13 opportunities that we've had to watch these teams play."
