Team Selection Rights
The Valero Alamo Bowl has the #1 selection from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences after the CFP.
The CFP host bowls will take a second team from either conference if their top teams finishing ranked #1-4. That means if the season ended today, #3 Oregon would play in a semifinal game at either the Goodyear Cotton Bowl or Capital One Orange Bowl and #23 Utah would go to the Rose Bowl.
On the Big 12 side, their champion (#9 Oklahoma State, #11 Baylor or #13 Oklahoma) would go to the Allstate Sugar Bowl unless they finish in the Top 4. If the other two teams are not at-large selections for the CFP bowls, they would be both be available when the Valero Alamo Bowl makes their selection.
