Did the committee get it right?

The CFP committee might have had the easiest job in the era. Did they botch this year’s four or nail it?

Playing in the Peach Bowl, the CFP Committee got the top spot right when it sent gave LSU the top ranking and sent them to the closest site to Baton Rouge, to Atlanta. With Utah and Georgia losing, all the committee had to do was pick the winner of the Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma defeated Baylor, and thus were given the four spot. LSU had five wins over then top ten teams, over Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and Texas. Oklahoma has beaten everyone on their schedule except for Kansas State (who they were upset by). But, Oklahoma has looked great since, and have their best defense in the CFP era, something that the committee always questions for the Sooners. Now, the committee slid Ohio State down from the top ranking to number two after they had to comeback to beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship. Thus, now the Buckeyes have to play Clemson, another undefeated (like LSU and Ohio State) who won their respective conference championship game (ACC). Both of those seedings are correct concerning most of the public. Clemson and Ohio State will meet in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona come December 28. According to me, the committee got it right by moving LSU to the top spot and Ohio State down to the number two spot.
