What's on the line

Washington: The Huskies are looking for their first undefeated season since 1991. This is the only time Washington has captured a national title with Billy Joe Hobert and Mario Bailey leading Washington's offense.

Washington is also hoping for its first CFP victory. The Huskies' only other playoff appearance came after the 2016 season when Washington lost to Alabama in the Peach Bowl.

Texas: The Longhorns are searching for their first national title since Vince Young scampered into the end zone against USC to win the Rose Bowl at the end of the 2005 season. And even though Texas is headed to the SEC, the Big 12 will likely feel a little proud of Texas' win . Texas will be the second Big 12 team after TCU to play for the national title in the CFP era.
