Michigan to Face Alabama in College Football Playoff Semifinal at Rose Bowl

The College Football Playoff semifinal will see top-seeded Michigan take on Southeastern Conference champion Alabama in the 110th edition of the Rose Bowl Game. The CFP committee announced the lineup for the final four-team playoff on Sunday, with the unbeaten Wolverines (13-0) set to face the Crimson Tide (12-1) in the historic bowl game.

Michigan’s return to Pasadena holds significance as the Wolverines have played in the Rose Bowl Game 21 times, second only to USC. Despite their storied history at the Granddaddy of Them All, Michigan’s last appearance in the Rose Bowl was in 2007.

The Wolverines, led by head coach Jim Harbaugh, have overcome adversity this season, including two suspensions for Harbaugh, to secure their spot in the CFP for the third time. Michigan is aiming for their first national title since 1997 and their first victory in the CFP.

However, they face a formidable opponent in the fourth-seeded Crimson Tide, who secured their eighth appearance in the Rose Bowl after a spectacular upset victory over No. 1 Georgia in the SEC title game. Alabama’s previous Rose Bowl Game appearance was in 1946, and they also won the national championship at the Rose Bowl in 2010.

The national championship game will be played on January 8 in Houston, and both Michigan and Alabama will be vying for a spot in the title game. The showdown at the Rose Bowl is sure to be a must-watch for college football fans.

This matchup marks an exciting and historic moment for both teams, as they aim to etch their names in college football history. The stage is set for an exhilarating semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game.
