“Many teams remain very close throughout the rankings,” said selection committee chairman Kirby Hocutt. “Head-to-head victories among comparable teams, results against common opponents and strength of schedule remain important points of differentiation for many teams.”

The Allstate Sugar Bowl (Monday, January 1, 2018) will host two of the top four teams in one of the College Football Playoff Semifinals. The other Playoff Semifinal will be hosted by the Rose Bowl, also on January 1.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl will host the Big 12 and the SEC seven times in the next 10 years. The other three seasons (2017, 2020 and 2023), the Allstate Sugar Bowl will serve as a College Football Playoff Semifinal.
