There are three major college football games on tonight and they are Alabama vs Georgia(SEC CHAMPIONSHIP) Florida State vs Georgia Tech(ACC CHAMPIONSHIP) AND Wisconsin vs Nebraska (Big 10 CHAMPIONSHIP).
The Marquee matchup of the night is Bama vs Georgia. Both teams come into the game ranked in the top three in the BCS polls, with the winner going to face Notre Dame in the National Championship. Bama is ranked number 1 overall in defense and ranked 24th in offense, but AJ McCarron has played really well for the tide this year and has had great execution from his o line. If he is able to get clean looks it will be a long day for the 22nd ranked defense of Georgia. Though in Georgia’s defense their defense rank is deceitive of how good they are especially their front 7. This game should be a defense masterpiece and will most likely be won or lost by a qb. Personally I don’t like either one of them, but if I had to choose I’d choose Murray. With all that being said I will pick Georgia 20-16.
This needs to be said before I go forward. I am a Miami Hurricanes fan. I’ve been a fan for over 10 years so this one is very tough for me.
The ACC champ game is between Florida State and Ga Tech. FSU has a top 2 total defense and a 16th ranked offense goes up against GA Tech. Ga Techs woeful defense will have a lot of problems trying to stop EJ Manuel and this potent offense. FSU may have issues trying to stop the triple option offense that GA Tech Coach Paul Johnson runs, but that is tech’s only chance. I don’t think this will be a close game at all I have it 42-21 FSU wins.
The final game is Wisconsin vs Nebraska of the big 10. This game is going to be a passing offense in Nebraska versus a more run oriented offense in Wisconsin. Nebraska has lived up to expectations while Wisconsin has not been close to pre season hype. Taylor Martinez has improved greatly over the years since his freshman year where he was very inaccurate and was only a run threat. Now you have to respect both parts of his game. For Wisconsin they will need to get
Montee Ball going early and often against this poor run defense of Nebraska. Wisconsin should stop this Nebraska run game and control the clock. I have Wisconsin pulling the upset and win 27-23.
