TCU is moving on to the National Championship Title game after beating Michigan in a 51-45 shootout in the Fiesta Bowl. The sides clashed in Glendale where the Horned Frogs got out to a quick 14-0 lead and went into the half up 21-6. The Wolverines stormed back and cut the deficit to six after Roman Wilson caught a touchdown pass with just over three minutes left. However, Michigan was unable to score after getting the ball back with less than a minute left to play. The Wolverines suffered their first loss and ended the season 13-and-1. The teams combined for 44 points in the third quarter, which is the highest total in college football playoff history. It was also the second-highest scoring game ever in the playoffs. TCU will prepare for the National Championship game against Georgia at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood a week from Monday.

Georgia defeated Ohio State on Saturday night to make it to the National Championship game.

Georgia beat Ohio State 42-41 in the Peach Bowl. The sides clashed in Atlanta where the Buckeyes took a commanding, 35-24 lead early in the second half. After an Ohio State field goal with less than three minutes left in the game, the Bulldogs stormed down the field and took a one-point lead after Stetson Bennett connected with Adonai Mitchell for a 10-yard touchdown. The Buckeyes got the ball back with less than a minute left, but Noah Ruggles missed a 50-yard game-winning field goal which sealed the victory for top-ranked Georgia.
