The College Football Playoff (CFP) is an annual postseason knockout invitational tournament held by the NCAA to decide a national champion at the FBS level of college football in the United States. Two semifinal games feature four teams, with the winners advancing to the College Football Playoff National Championship game.
Ohio State defeated Oregon in the title game to win the first tournament, which took place at the end of the 2014 NCAA Division I FBS football season. After the inaugural season, Alabama and Clemson have mainly dominated the playoffs; the two teams have met three times in the title game and once in the semifinals.
The four teams who will compete in the CFP are chosen and seeded by a 13-member committee.

The Horseshoe in Columbus is an instantly recognizable structure, and the Ohio State Buckeyes rarely disappoint their adoring supporters, who crowd Ohio Stadium to the brim, much exceeding its capacity of 104,944. The Buckeyes’ Ohio Stadium has the atmosphere and experience to be one of the top football venues in the country, with unrelenting fans, persistent buzz, and a consistently outstanding program to back it all up.
For anyone in the SEC, and especially an out-of-conference opponent that isn’t prepared for that kind of intensity, a trip to Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge is always going to be a tough road trip. Taking the field in front of a hostile crowd in Death Valley, whether it’s a familiar rival or a program making a rare trip, can be daunting.
It’s hard to separate the Rose Bowl Game’s rich heritage from the venue, which has hosted three Super Bowls in addition to serving as the home of the UCLA Bruins since the 1980s. The stadium in Pasadena, California, has an aura about it that’s tough to describe.
After Covid-19 Details
The coronavirus outbreak caused the sport to completely rethink its operations. Everything was different, from the mask-wearing coaches on the sidelines to the spectator game-day experience to comprehensive team testing methods — and even how the sport is refereed.
The game-day experience is a big part of what makes college football special: the spectators, the band, the student section, and tailgating. Everything had changed radically.
The stadiums were only around a quarter or a third filled. At halftime, there were no more marching bands. The student sections were not as crowded as they formerly were. The 2020 college football season was unlike anything we’d seen before, as institutions took steps to reduce the spread. However, by 2021, everything had returned to normal. COVID looked to be a thing of the past as college stadiums were full.
