This week is the final stretch of the college football season as this week is championship week. This weekend there are seven conference championship games which will help decide the top four teams to the new postseason playoff.
The College Football Playoff can be tough to predict if they would rather see a team that won their conference, but played an easy out of conference schedule. This weekend the only match ups that people will be watching are the Southeastern Conference Championship game which is between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Missouri Tigers in Atlanta, Georgia. This is early big favorite for the Tide as the line is 14.5 points in favor of the Tide. Missouri has had two bad losses this season to Indiana and Georgia. Indiana is a team that you as an SEC school should never lose too unless it is basketball season.
Last year’s national champion, Florida State looks to extend the winning streak as they face the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship game. Georgia Tech has a really strong quarterback that if given a lot of room and time he will run all over your defense. Meanwhile, the Florida State Seminoles look for their 29th win in a row and this streak started back in 2012 as the Seminoles defeated the Yellow Jackets in the ACC Championship game.
Championship weekend is kicked off on Friday night with a west coast rematch between the Arizona Wildcats and the Oregon Ducks. In the first game between these two schools the Arizona Wildcats shut down the Ducks, forced two turnovers, and held Oregon to a season low 24 points. This game is important for both teams if they want to have any chance of getting into the playoff.
