Texas and Washington will meet in the Sugar Bowl for a chance to play in the national championship game. The unbeaten and second-seeded Huskies are Pac-12 champions and led by Heisman Trophy runner-up Michael Penix Jr. at quarterback. Quarterback Quinn Ewers and the Longhorns won the Big 12 title. The winner will advance to the national title game Jan. 8 in Houston against either Alabama or Michigan, who play each other in the Rose Bowl.

The two teams also met in the postseason last year with Washington beating the Longhorns 27-20 in the Alamo Bowl. The stakes are much bigger this time around. It's the first time Texas has made the College Football Playoff and Washington's second appearance (2016).
