Today’s College Football Playoff semi-final will for the first time see a matchup of undefeated teams in the 5-season history of the playoff.

In fact, before this season, there had never been more than one unbeaten team in a single College Football Playoff, but this year there are three.

Clemson and Notre Dame are joined by defending national champion and No. 1 Alabama which will play No. 4 Oklahoma in the second semi-final.

The Fighting Irish (12-0), who are the first independent team to make the Playoff, are playing in their first College Football Playoff.

They are an eight-time national champion.

Meanwhile, the Tigers (13-0) are making their fourth consecutive College Football Playoff appearance and coach Dabo Swinney says his players are ready to play.

“We are excited,” Swinney told ESPN before kick-off. “This is what it’s all about. We have worked all year for this moment.”

The four-time ACC champions won the national title two years ago after beating the Crimson Tide.

The football experts are expecting a very tight contest, but according to ESPN’s Football Power Index, Clemson has a 71.5 percent chance to advance to the national championships.

Today is the fourth meeting all-time between Clemson and Notre Dame.

The Tigers hold a 2-1 advantage in the all-time series with the most recent meeting coming in 2015 which ended in a 24-22 victory for the Tigers at Memorial Stadium.
