We haven’t even kicked off the 2023 football season but that’s not stopping people from looking ahead to 2024.
There’s a lot of excitement for 2024 for a lot of good reasons, including conference realignment and an expanded playoff. Oklahoma and Texas are headed to the SEC next summer, and USC and UCLA are moving to the Big Ten. The playoff is expanding to 12 teams.
So get ready for all sorts of fun in the year 2024.
Brad Crawford of 247Sports put out an early 12-team College Football Playoff.
This projection has the Sooners as the No. 4 team in the field, earning a first-round bye.
Unfortunately for the Sooners, they’ll face the No. 5 Alabama Crimson Tide in Norman for the second time that season.
Crawford has the Sooners falling to Alabama in that quarterfinal game. It’s unclear who he has winning the game earlier in the season, but if the Sooners were to win that one, it would be hard to beat Alabama twice in one season, no matter where it’s played at.
That ultimately sets up for an all-SEC final with the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama facing off.
For Oklahoma, what a season that would be to make the CFP in their first year in the SEC.
I bet if you asked Oklahoma fans today about making the playoff in year one, they’d take that in a heartbeat.
But there’s still a lot of work to be done and the 2023 season left to be played before that season is upon us.
