The doubt no longer exists. Any controversy will not be about Alabama football on Sunday.
The likelihood is that the Tide will be named as the No. 1 seed for the College Football Playoff on Sunday following their dominant win in the SEC Championship Game over Georgia.
The Bulldogs should be there too, though the committee has not always treated non-conference champions with reverence. Nor have they ever put a Group of 5 team in the four-team tournament, and that should change with Cincinnati.
Key word: Should. We'll know for sure on Sunday morning. Here's how you can watch Sunday's selection show.
