No. 1 Michigan battles No. 2 Washington on Monday in the College Football Playoff National Championship from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. This title game has a different feel than those in years past, namely because neither team has made it this far yet despite being included in past fields. This is also the first national title game without an SEC team since the CFP’s inception in 2014. 

Michigan and Washington have also taken entirely different approaches to Monday’s seismic clash. The Wolverines are in their ninth year under coach Jim Harbaugh, with this being their third straight College Football Playoff appearance. Michigan failed to make it out of the semifinals in each of its first two years, losing by a combined score of 85-56. 

Washington’s ascension under coach Kalen DeBoer feels almost immediate by comparison. He led the Huskies to 11 wins in 2022 — his first year with the program — and guided them to their first undefeated regular season since 1991 and a Pac-12 championship to secure a playoff return. The Huskies made it previously under former coach Chris Petersen in 2016. 

This is also a rare national title matchup in that both teams rank outside the top 10 of the 247Sports Team Talent Composite. Michigan sits at 14th, while Washington is 12 spots behind at 26th — a testament to the ability of both staffs to identify and develop talent both through high school and transfer portal recruiting.
