The four teams that will be in the College Football Playoff have been revealed.

No. 3 Notre Dame vs. "We won't have to worry about that. We'll have a great challenge but one that we're excited about", Kelly said.

"I think the first thing to do is turn the tape on of the Texas football team", Smart said, asked how to get his players past the 35-28 defeat to Alabama and ensuing CFB Playoff snub. "They can - all the experts have to pull from in their recent experience is what's happened over the last ten years and how we got blown out by Alabama in '12 and lost to Ohio State in '15 in the Fiesta Bowl. They'll probably win a national championship, in my opinion", Narduzzi said. He finishes his career with a record of 215-117-1, trips to 19 bowl games, two Big 12 championships, and a spot in college football's Hall of Fame. In the other 2018 College Football Playoff semifinal, Notre Dame and Clemson, both undefeated, clash in the Cotton Bowl at 4 p.m. ET at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Notre Dame's defense is what will keep the Irish in the game. "It got taken away at the last second, and we didn't make the play".

Postseason offers the league at least seven more opportunities versus Power Five opponents: the aforementioned Clemson-Notre Dame, N.C. State-Texas A&M and Virginia-South Carolina matchups, plus Pitt-Stanford in the Sun Bowl, Miami-Wisconsin in the Pinstripe and Georgia Tech-Minnesota in the Quick Lane.
