The College Football Playoff era has its seventh edition in the 2020-21 season.
Last season, LSU beat Oklahoma and Clemson beat Ohio State in the semifinals before LSU defeated defending champion Clemson to win the CFP national title.
Here's a look at the upcoming CFP schedule:
When is the 2020-21 College Football Playoff field selected?
The four teams selected to the 2020-21 College Football Playoff will be announced in a final top 25 rankings reveal on Sunday, Dec. 20. Originally scheduled for Dec. 6, this final rankings release was pushed back two weeks as a result of several conferences moving their championship games to Dec. 12, 18 or 19.
