Texas (12-1, 8-1 Big 12) lived up to lofty preseason expectations, winning the Big 12 title in its final year in the conference and making the College Football Playoff for the very first time. The Longhorns picked up a season-defining victory in Week 2 when they went into Tuscaloosa and defeated future SEC rival Alabama. Outside of close loss to arch rival Oklahoma, UT marched right through it conference schedule and ultimately blew out Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Washington (13-0, 9-0 Pac-12) ran the table to become the final Pac-12 champion and is back in the CFP for the first time since 2016. The Huskies jumped out to an impressive 5-0 start to the season before surviving a big-time showdown against rival Oregon in one of the best games of the entire season. They’d experience a handful of close calls down the stretch, but remained unbeaten and once again defeated the Ducks in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Texas enters the game as a 4-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, accompanied by a total of 63.5.
