The College Football National Championship game looks a little different this year. For the first time since 2014, no SEC team is among the final two.
Both the top-ranked Michigan Wolverines and #2 ranked Washington Huskies are undefeated—and both are making their first appearance in a CFP championship game. Whoever wins will be just the sixth team to finish a college football season with a 15-0 record (or better).
Michigan certainly comes with some baggage. Head coach Jim Harbaugh was suspended for six of the regular season’s 12 games—and is the subject of two ongoing NCAA investigations — one for alleged recruiting violations and one for alleged sign-stealing. The school last won a national title in 1997.
Washington has been an underdog all year, but has constantly topped expectations. The school hasn’t held a title since 1991.
