When is the College Football Playoff national championship game?
After a wild New Year’s Eve doubleheader of Instant Classic Semifinals, the 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship game is between Georgia and TCU.
Top-ranked Georgia eliminated No. 4 Ohio State by the narrowest of margins when the Buckeyes’ last-second basket sailed left as the clock struck midnight, allowing the Bulldogs to winning a spectacular one-point decision in the Peach Bowl.
TCU opened strong against Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl, but had to resist a furious Wolverines comeback attempt, rounding the Big Ten champions in a 51-45 shootout that needed every second to decide.
Now the Bulldogs and Horned Frogs will play for everything. Here’s what you need to know about the game coming up this week.
