Oklahoma vs. Georgia
Yeah, I know that Baker Mayfield is sick (or hungover from a bender), but I am not going to bet against him. There is a reason why Mayfield won the Heisman Trophy: the dude can ball.
The only thing I don’t like about the Sooners is that they do not play defense. That doesn’t bode well against a team that likes to run the football and bludgeon teams up front. Plus, Baker and Co. has not faced a defense with the athletes the Bulldogs have.
Yeah, I know I said on my podcast that I’d be shocked if Georgia keeps it within single-digits. After sleeping on it, I still like Oklahoma, just not in a blowout…
Sooners 35, Bulldogs 27
Clemson vs. Alabama
This is what we college football fans have been waiting for: Tigers-Crimson Tide III. It’s just that none of us thought it would be in the semifinals.
Nevertheless, here we go.
I think this will be a game of the ages. Both squads are deep and very strong, especially in the front seven. I will be shocked if this is a high scoring game.
I have to give Clemson the edge. I just think this is Clemson’s time. And the Tigers have Nick Saban and the Tide’s number…
Tigers 20, Crimson Tide 17
