The top four teams in the final rankings, which will be released on Dec. 8, will play in the playoffs. Playoff games will be held at the Peach Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 28.

The championship game will be played in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Jan. 13.

With one regular season games remaining, the Bulldogs remain in control of their destiny. They close out the regular season against Georgia Tech on Saturday.

The Bulldogs have already secured a spot in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta on Dec. 7, against LSU.

Should the Dawgs win every game, they'll be assured of a spot in the playoffs. Any stumble along the way, and the path to the championship is likely blocked.
