Undefeated college football teams in 2018

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and UCF are the last four teams in college football with perfect records as the season heads toward bowl season.

Here are the four remaining undefeated college football teams for the 2018 season, listed in order of their CFP ranking, and the remaining matchups. 

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF: Bama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Oklahoma make field | Top 25

No. 1 Alabama (13-0)

Next game: No. 4 Oklahoma

Unlike in last season's national title run, Alabama brought home the SEC championship in 2018 and will not have to sweat out Sunday's College Football Playoff selection show. The No. 1 Crimson Tide will enter the Playoff undefeated for the second time in three years.

It was Jalen Hurts who kept Alabama's pristine record in check, coming off the bench for an injured Tua Tagovailoa to lead the Tide back from a 13-point deficit against No. 4 Georgia. Hurts' 15-yard rushing touchdown with 1:11 remaining clinched Alabama's 35-28 win in Atlanta.

The toughest game left: Oklahoma — The Tide will play the Sooners in the College Football Playoff semifinal on Dec. 29.

No. 2 Clemson (13-0)

Next game: No. 3 Notre Dame

Clemson picked up an unprecedented fourth-straight ACC title after a 42-10 drubbing of Pittsburgh Saturday. 

The Tigers were led by Travis Etienne, who had 156 yards and two touchdowns on the day, giving him 1,307 yards on the season so far. Trevor Lawrence was adequate, throwing  for 118 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, but while his stats don't jump out, they were more than enough to get the job done as Clemson rushed for 301 total yards.

The toughest game left: Notre Dame — Clemson will play Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff semifinal on Dec. 29.

No. 3 Notre Dame (12-0)

Next game: No. 2 Clemson

It wasn't always easy, but Notre Dame finished the regular season undefeated by beating Southern California, 24-17. The Trojans actually led 10-0, but Notre Dame rallied to ruin their bowl hopes.

Ian Book wasn't strong all game, but he did still throw for 352 yards and two touchdowns to go with one interception. Dexter Williams added almost 100 yards on the ground.

The toughest game left: Clemson — The Fighting Irish will play Clemson on Dec. 29 in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

No. 8 UCF (12-0)

Next game: No. 11 LSU

The Knights did it again. Coming back from a 17-point halftime deficit, UCF topped Memphis 56-41 to win the American Conference Championship game on the play of Darriel Mack Jr. and his five second-half touchdowns. The Knights are guaranteed to get a New Years Six bowl game and will have the opportunity to show how they stack up against one of college football's more recognizable powers. 

The toughest game left: LSU — The Knights are headed to the desert to play the LSU Tigers in the Fiesta Bowl. Last year, UCF beat SEC opponent Auburn in the Peach Bowl.
