With the new college football playoffs format, there are 2 semi-final games and then the championship game.
If your pool includes the championship game, it will show on the picks page, but, will have "TBD" teams until the 2 semi-finals games have finished. Then the 2 teams for the championship will be put into the system. ..at that point, people will have to return to the site to make their championship predictions.
Please note: that the "edit picks" page may read "Picks: Incomplete" until every last game has been selected.
If your pool includes the championship game, and that game is locked, the system will unlock the picks page after the last bowl game, on Jan 2, before the Championship game, so players can pick the Championship game, without being able to change any other game.
Not all pools with bowls include the championship bowl game.
If the championship bowl game is not on your picks page, then your pool does not include the championship game.
