College Football Playoff Selection Show Open Thread

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Time to find out who's going to the playoff, and more importantly, where the Louisville Cardinals are going bowling.

The Playoff semifinals, which are the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, will be unveiled at approximately 12:30 p.m. ET, with the ESPN/WatchESPN broadcast beginning at noon ET.

The selection committee's No. 1 team (Alabama) will play the No. 4 team in the Peach, and the No. 2 team will face No. 3 in the Fiesta.

Expect Clemson, Ohio State, Penn State, and Washington to be the four teams in the mix for the other three spots.

The committee will place the top two seeds at the most advantageous sites, which includes criteria such as convenience of travel for its fans, home-crowd advantage/disadvantage, and general familiarity with the host city and stadium. The preference will go to the No. 1 seed.

Teams that will be selected for the other four New Year's Six bowls (Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Cotton Bowl, and Rose Bowl), as well as the final Top 25 rankings and start times for the semifinal games, will be announced around 2:30 p.m.
