Large College GameDay Panel Predicts CFP Title Game Between No.1 Alabama and No.3 Georgia
It has been 41 years since Georgia won a national championship. If ESPN’s “College GameDay” has anything to say about it, the drought will end on Monday when the No.3 Bulldogs face No.1 Alabama in the national college football playoff championship.
Here’s how the crew chose the game:
Lee Corso, 13-5 headgear picks this season.
“All Alabama has going for them in this game is they have the best varsity coach ever. Alabama in attack all they got was Bryce Young, the Heisman Trophy winner. And, in Alabama, all they have in defense is Will Anderson, the best player. And, Alabama, beat them 37 days ago by 17 points. Poor old Georgia. Everything. what they have are hungry Dawgs I’m going Uga.
Meanwhile, back in the preseason, David Pollack, Georgia’s honorary captain for Monday night, chose Alabama to beat Georgia in the SEC title game and lose to the Bulldogs in the national championship. . Did he stay with the pickax?
“This is the fifth time that the top 5 teams have met in the same season,” he said. “The four were won by the losing team. I think Georgia, revenge, defense is playing better. Stetson Bennett plays a good game with his feet and his arm. I think Georgia wins.
Desmond Howard: “Looking at Georgia you have to think this defense won’t have the same poor performance it did in the SEC Championship game. They’re just too good for that. … This team is mentally ready for this game. I’m going with the Georgia Bulldogs.
Joey Galloway: “I was never right when I picked Alabama, but, damn it, I’m going to try again. Give me the Georgia Bulldogs.
Jesse Palmer: “The Georgia Bulldogs. They play with a chip on the shoulder.
Greg McElroy: “I love Bama. I think they have more guns. The top 2 players in the game are Bryce Young and Will Anderson. 31-28, tide.
Robert Griffin III: “I’m leaving with Bama 38-34. I think it’s a great game. Bama has Bryce Young, the Heisman. They also have Will Anderson Jr., the nation’s top defensive player. So I rock with the tide.
Alabama and Georgia, set at 7 p.m. (8 p.m. ET) and will be streamed live on fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
