Big 12 Teams
The Big 12 is the only Power 5 conference to have never sent a team to the CFP National Championship.
Big Ten Teams
Ohio State won the very first edition of the CFP back in 2015.
The Buckeyes lost in the semifinals in both 2017 and 2020, and the title game in 2021. Michigan State made an appearance in the CFP in 2016, but were hammered 38-0 in the semifinal by Alabama.
Oregon is responsible for the PAC-12’s only CFP National Championship appearance. The Ducks lost 42-20 in the very first edition.
Washington is the only team from the conference to make it back to the playoff since then.
The SEC is the only conference to ever send two teams to the same playoff (which it’s done three times). Both Alabama and Georgia were a part of the 2018 CFP, and actually met in the National Championship, as well. In 2021, Alabama and Florida both qualified. In 2022, Georgia and Bama met in the title game again.
Group of Five Contenders
Cincinnati became the first G5 team to qualify for the four-team playoff in 2021-22, losing to Alabama 27-6 in the Cotton Bowl.

Table updated through 2022 CFP.
There are only six teams who have won a game in the College Football Playoffs, and both Alabama and Clemson have more CFP wins than the others combined. These two schools have simply dominated the CFP era.
No Independent or team from a Group 5 Conference has ever won a national championship in this time.
