AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Longhorns are in the College Football Playoff semifinals for the first time in program history.

No. 3 Texas will play No. 2 Washington in the Sugar Bowl at 7:45 p.m. CT, Jan. 1, 2024. No. 1 Michigan will play No. 4 Alabama in the Rose Bowl at 4 p.m. CT, Jan. 1, 2024. The CFP National Championship game will feature the winners of those games on Jan. 8 at NRG Stadium in Houston.

Florida State is the first undefeated champion from a Power 5 Conference that wasn’t selected to make the field. The committee ranked them No. 5 and the Georgia Bulldogs No. 6. Alabama defeated Georgia 27-24 to win the SEC championship.

The Longhorns clobbered Oklahoma State 49-21 to win the Big 12 Conference title as they’ll head to the Southeastern Conference next year. With a 57-7 win over Texas Tech in the Big 12 regular-season finale, the Longhorns won their last two games by a combined score of 106-28.

Texas lost to quarterback Michael Penix Jr. and the Huskies in last year’s Alamo Bowl 27-20. Running backs Bijan Robinson and Roschon Johnson opted out of the game to prepare for the NFL Draft.

This is developing and will be updated with more details and quotes later Sunday
