The top four teams in the final rankings will play in the Playoff Semifinals on January 1, 2018, at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual and the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

“The committee members spent a lot of time preparing for today by watching games and studying detailed information,” said selection committee chairman Kirby Hocutt. “I am grateful for how seriously they take their mission. There are three new members this year and they all hit the ground running.”
