First Brush has 'Bama facing Texas A&M in Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

- It's early, but the first official College Football Playoff rankings have Alabama facing Texas A&M in a one versus four national semi-final matchup December 31 in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.

The one loss Aggies were a surprising choice at number four, beating out the undefeated Washington Huskies with their strength of schedule. Washington and Ohio State finished five and six respectively with number two Clemson pitted against number three Michigan in the other semi-final game.

The weekly rankings will likely change, giving college football fans lots to talk about until the final rankings are released on December 4.

How does all this impact our own Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl? FOX 5 Sports Justin Felder spent a few minutes with the Bowl's President and CEO Gary Stokan to find out.
