Did the CFP committee get it wrong placing Alabama at No. 13?

Although it will not be in the College Football Playoff, the CFP committee could have at least provided it with an opportunity to be in a New Year’s Six bowl. On Sunday, the committee dropped Alabama to No. 13 – leaving every Crimson Tide fan wanting an explanation. 

While it ultimately gets a chance to face Jim Harbaugh and Michigan in the Citrus Bowl, the move was the final piece of “Alabama fatigue” for this season. Nick Saban and company lost its games by a combined eight points, which was the fewest among teams 5-13 in the rankings.

Did the committee get it wrong? 

On Monday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed the Tide’s latest ranking and how it should at least be playing in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. The CFP committee completely misfired on this one. Alabama’s next game will be inside Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on New Year’s Day for 2020. 

You can also listen to the audio version of the podcast via Spreaker.
