Why Alabama Will Win The College Football Playoff National Championship

Maybe it really was just as simple as Alabama is just better than Georgia at college football.

Yeah, the Crimson Tide struggled against Florida, and LSU, and Arkansas, and needed a miracle to get by Auburn, and lost to Texas A&M, and …

When it was time to turn things up a few notches, it did it.

There were problems. The offensive line was too inconsistent, the defense had a strange way of taking some me time for stretches, and the ground game was hit-or-miss – but that’s all nitpicking.

It’s Alabama. The quarterback won the Heisman. The receivers are going to soon start for your fantasy team. The pass rush was incredible, RB Brian Robinson will have a long career in the NFL, and the coaching staff is peerless.

Will Anderson – 97 tackles, 17.5 sacks, 33.5 tackles for loss – and the defensive front live behind the line. Anderson got one of the team’s three sacks and two of the six tackles for loss in the first meeting, but as long as the D is generating pressure, it’ll be doing its job.

Georgia QB Stetson Bennett was fantastic against Michigan, and he actually has a better quarterback rating than Bryce Young, but he was pressed by Bama and threw two picks in the first game all season long with a wee bit of stress – JT Daniels played in the opener against Clemson.

Can Bennett hold up when he needs to come through in clutch moments? Georgia converted just 3-of-12 third down conversions against Bama.

Can the running game get going? It averaged fewer than four yards per carry and couldn’t take control.

Can Georgia get the shake the doubt once Alabama starts rolling for a stretch?

Maybe, probably not, and Nick Saban lives comfortably rent-free in Georgia’s head.

Long blurb short, Georgia hopes it can win.

Alabama knows it’s going to win.
