    This is a deep dive into the college football selection committee, where they currently work and where they played and/or get their education. When the final Selection Show airs on Sunday December 8th many fans, especially those with their favorite team battling for the fourth and final spot, will want to know exactly where the committee members' allegiances and subconscious biases may lean.
