--Hola, gang! (I'm currently in Mexico on vacation as I type this.) It's time for this year's tournament! Same great format--the ten conference champs plus two at-large berths, for a total of twelve teams.
--Here are the seeds and the first-round matchups. As usual, the number following the # is the AP rank, and the number in parentheses is the seed in the tournament based on the CFP rankings.

--#1 Alabama (1)--bye
--#2 Clemson (2)--bye
--#3 Notre Dame (3)--bye
--#4 Oklahoma (4)--bye

--Northern Illinois (12) at #6 Georgia (5)
--Appalachian State (10) at #7 UCF (7)
--#19 Fresno State (9) at #9 Washington (8)
--UAB (11) at #5 Ohio State (6)

I plan to get started on this tournament and start posting results shortly after I return home (Dec. 19).

Quarterfinal results from my SBQPHM Football 2018 CFP Playoffs:

The opener of the day was a classic. #9 Washington (8) battled #1 Alabama (1) hammer and tongs (Bama and tongs?) but the Crimson tide won it on a field goal as time expired, 31-28.

#3 Notre Dame (3) and #5 Ohio State (6) were tied up 7-7 at the end of the third quarter, but then the Fighing Irish pulled away in the fourth quarter and won it 28-7.

#4 Oklahoma (4) came from behind to defeat #6 Georgia (5) 20-14.

And in the nightcap, #7 UCF (7) just couldn't pull off the upset with their starting QB still out, and #2 Clemson (2) won it 34-20.

Semifinal matchups:

Orange Bowl (national semifinal): #1 Alabama (1) vs. #4 Oklahoma (4)

Cotton Bowl (national semifinal): #2 Clemson (2) vs. #3 Notre Dame (3)

Sugar Bowl (consolation bracket): #6 Georgia (5) vs. #9 Washington (8)

Semifinal results from my SBQPHM Football 2018 CFP Playoffs:

Orange Bowl (national semifinal): #4 Oklahoma (4) gets the upset here, defeating #1 Alabama (1) 24-14.

Cotton Bowl (national semifinal): Heck of a finish here. Going into the last two minutes, #2 Clemson (2) led #3 Notre Dame (3) 24-20, and had the ball, trying to kill the clock. As it turned out, in their hope to get a first down and finish off the Irish, the Tiger QB threw an interception, and Notre Dame returned it for a pick-six! The Fighting Irish win it, 27-24!

Sugar Bowl (consolation bracket): #6 Georgia (5) takes care of #9 Washington (8) here, 23-12.

Rose Bowl (consolation bracket): Again, the backup QB for #7 UCF (7) could not get the job done, as #5 Ohio State (6) def. UCF 28-14.

So this sets up the CFP National Championship: #3 Notre Dame (3) vs. #4 Oklahoma (4)
