New Year's Eve Bowl Schedule: College Football Playoff Semifinals and more

New, comments

The second edition of the College Football Playoff has arrived.

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

It's finally here. The wait for the Semifinal games for the second edition of the College Football Playoff is nearly over. This afternoon, we will finally get to see the top four teams in the country square off for the right to play in the CFP National Championship Game in a week and a half.

Storylines abound in these games. Last year, Oklahoma and Clemson met in the Russell Athletic Bowl, where Clemson housed the Sooners by a score of 40-6. In the other semifinal, Nick Saban will be coaching against the school that he led from 1995 until 1999.

Join APC as we follow along with today's games, and enjoy the football!
