What channel is Michigan vs TCU airing on today? Time, television schedule for the college football playoff semifinals


After years of dominance by Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney, the College Football Playoff Championship Game will feature new blood – and it will come out of this game.

Michigan hasn’t played for a national championship since 1997. TCU has played in major bowls over the years, but never had a chance to play for a national title. The drought will end for the winner of this game.

Michigan, the undefeated Big Ten champion, hopes to slow down TCU’s offense with the same defense that kept Ohio State in check at Columbus.

The Wolverines’ killer running game remains the heart of the attack, even without the injured Blake Corum. The biggest wildcard may be quarterback JJ McCarthy, who looked terrific against Ohio State but will face Heisman Trophy finalist Max Duggan.

Duggan has made gigantic progress as a passer this season while keeping defenses on their toes with his rushing ability. The Horned Frogs also have two legitimate NFL prospects surrounding Duggan in running back Kendre Miller and wide receiver Quentin Johnston, so the Horned Frogs could present the Wolverines with a challenge they haven’t often faced in the game. Big Ten.

Jim Harbaugh, a year after a blistering loss to Georgia in the CFP semi-finals, is looking to take the next step to a national championship, while Sonny Dykes is aiming to do the improbable and play for a title in his first season at TCU.
