Nick Saban disappointed Alabama isn't in the CFP (1:22)

Alabama didn't make the College Football Playoff, that's for sure. There is a time and a place for it.

3:12 PM ET

After missing out on the College Football Playoff for the second year in a row, Alabama will play Kansas State in the Sugar Bowl.

The fifth-ranked Alabama will face the ninth-ranked Kansas State in a football game on New Year's Eve.

The Capital One Orange Bowl has two teams heading to it.

The highest ranked team left after the Rose and Sugar bowls was Tennessee. The seventh-ranked Tigers and sixth-ranked Volunteers will play in the Orange Bowl for the fifth and fifth times, respectively.

The game is scheduled to start at 8 pm. It will be the first time the two teams have met in a decade.

Utah will play Penn State in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

The last two teams to make back-to-back Rose Bowl appearances were the Utes and the Cardinal.

USC, which fell just short of a College Football Playoff bid, will play in the Cotton Bowl. It will be the first New Year's Six bowl game since the 1940 Sugar Bowl when the 10th-ranked USC faces the 16th-ranked Tulane.

The bowl games will be shown on Disney's network.
