The CFP (Jan 1)

Monday, January 1

  • Rose Bowl Playoff semifinal, 5 p.m. on ESPN: Oklahoma vs. Georgia

    • Damn this is gonna be one hell of a game. Being from the Big 12 Oklahoma hasn’t played a defense as strong as an SEC team. That being said, this Georgia defense has seen quite a lot of good offenses, but nothing like Oklahoma's. That being said, this game isn’t going to come down to Baker mayfield vs. the Georgia linebackers, this game is gonna come down to who runs the ball better. My prediction: Oklahoma will start off the game well but going into the second half Chubb and Sony will start to pick up and Georgia will dominate the running game the second half and win by a slim margin. Expect an uncharacteristically high scoring game from Georgia.

    • Georgia

  • Sugar Bowl Playoff semifinal, 8:45 p.m. on ESPN: Clemson vs. Alabama

    • I don’t like this. I don’t like trying to predict this even after dropping my Alabama bias. The quick choice would be choose Clemson but if you start to think about it this game does not have a clear easy choice. While Kelly Bryant is very good he has not been tested in a game of this scale. He played well against Auburn and Miami, but playing against the most experienced playoff team in college football that also boasts the best defense in the NCAA (Wisconsin doesn’t count) is something he has never experienced before. Alabama will be healthy, rested, and prepared which makes them the most dangerous team in the playoff. These defenses are very evenly matched being the two best in the country with Alabama’s allowing 20 yards less per game and having one more total forced turnover Alabama has the most slight of edges in terms of defense. Alabama also has the edge on offense ranking 19th vs Clemson at 30th. However this is gap is not as big as it seems because Alabama only averages about 30 yards more and two more total touchdowns. This advantage could be negated if Kelly Bryant has a big game through the air to match his skill on the ground but if he does not, then the advantage goes to Alabama.  Special Teams is very hard to judge outside of the eye test. The eye test would tell you these teams are pretty even with a slight advantage to Alabama because of how excellent JK Scott is at dropping a ball inside the 5. The number support this too, according to ESPN’s team efficiency rankings, Alabama special teams figure at 53.8 out of 100 with Clemson at 45.9 out of 100. Overall this is a very close game to call but Alabama has the advantage especially when factoring in experience and the extra week of rest.

    • Alabama

Monday, January 8

  • Playoff National Championship, 8 p.m. on ESPN: Rose winner vs. Sugar winner

    • TBD

 

Why Alabama is in over Ohio State or UCF
