Championship Game

Alabama over Georgia


Last year Alabama did what Alabama does and ran through it’s schedule. Many spoke on that Alabama team in GOAT terms. Until they got shellacked in the national Championship game by Clemson. Alabama lost a lot of coaches and talent. But they reload like no other team in history. They still have Tua at QB. They have a better coaching staff this year with Sarkisian at OC (upgrade over Enos/Locksley). We do expect this Alabama team to be what people thought last years team was. National Champs. Georgia is probably the 2nd or 3rd best team in the nation, but will be hard pressed to run through their schedule unscathed and unlikely to beat Alabama in Champ game. Thus with 2 losses would be on the outside looking in.

Do expect Tennessee to be on the mend and make a bowl as well as 11 other SEC schools (all except Vanderbilt and Ole Miss). LSU could end up being the 4th or 5th best team in the nation. It is a very stacked year for the SEC.

Alabama the #1 seed in the playoffs. LSU and Georgia top 10 teams. UF, TAMU, and Auburn top 25 teams.
