NCAA Football: SEC Championship-LSU vs Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to Championship Saturday!

The final spot in the college football playoff will be decided today after Utah went down in flames against Oregon last night in the Pac 12 title game.

Baylor and Oklahoma might be a play-in game to the tournament now, assuming Ohio State, Clemson and LSU take care of business later today. The winner of that game now has the best shot to jump into that No. 4 slot, likely to face Ohio State. That game can be seen at noon ET on ABC.

Memphis and Cincinnati will square off for the second week in a row, this time playing for the AAC title and a shot at a New Year’s Six Bowl.

No. 2 LSU and No. 4 Georgia will kickoff shortly after at 4 p.m. ET in Atlanta, with massive playoff implications on the line. Georgia has a shot to play their way into the field this afternoon, but they’ll have to topple Joe Burrow and the Tigers to do so.

Virginia and Clemson will play for the ACC title in Charlotte tonight, while Ohio State and Wisconsin will play for the Big Ten title in Indianapolis.

The full schedule is below.
