College Football Championship Game Predictions

Since 1998 when a true champion was crowned the Southeast Conference (SEC) has produced 16 teams in the championship game and 12 champions. The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) has produced 10 teams in the championship game and five champions.

That bodes well for both Alabama, of the SEC and Clemson, of the ACC in 2020. The two schools boast the top two college football coaches in the country in Alabama’s Nick Saban and Clemson’s Dabo Sweeney. They also have the country’s two best quarterbacks in Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence. 

Tagovailoa completed 69 percent of his passes for 3,966 yards with 43 touchdowns and just six interceptions last fall. Lawrence completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,286 yards with 30 touchdowns and just four interceptions. 

It’s hard to bet against either the Crimson Tide or the Tigers, but if you don’t like the short odds you may want to take a chance on LSU, at 20-1, or Oklahoma, at 16-1. But the reality is it’s going to be Alabama and Clemson again for the title.
