LOS ANGELES - For years, college football fans pleaded for a playoff. Now it's here and it starts at the sport's most hallowed venue, with two Heisman Trophy winners and the defending national champions.

Welcome to the College Football Playoff at the Rose Bowl.

Marcus Mariota and second-seeded Oregon (12-1) face Jameis Winston and third-seeded Florida State (13-0) on Thursday in the first national semifinal ever played at college football's highest level.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says the Seminoles are looking forward to the challenge. Meanwhile, Oregon is a relative newcomer among college football powerhouses. The only thing left for the Ducks to confirm their status as a member of the nation's elite is a national title.
