That includes the College Football Playoffs, with the national title game to be held in Atlanta at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. No team ranked No. 1 in the final CFP regular-season rankings has ever won the national title. Defending national champion Clemson, heading into this year’s playoffs at No. 1, will try to change that.
