Okay we are down to just a couple days before these 4 mighty teams: Clemson, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Michigan State kick this NCAA Football post season off.
I have to stick with one of my pre-season NCAA pick for runner-up, Clemson Tigers and that magical QB they have in Deshaun Watson as I believe they will outshine the Oklahoma Sooners by a score of 38 to 34 in a shootout.
I see Alabama Crimson Tide and Michigan State Spartans as muscle against muscle, old fashioned mud and guts football. Pound it up the middle baby. The problem is, the Crimson Tide is better at it and going to regain the honor of the S-E -C, by out smashing Michigan State 27-13.
Put your money on Alabama to re-claim the national title as well.
For the Bonus pick, the Fiesta Bowl Notre Dame Fighting Irish versus the Ohio State Buckeyes. Ohio State is clearly the more talented team, but Notre Dame has enough great coaching and talent to compete with Ohio State for a close game. But who is more focused and seems hungrier? Notre Dame is. Ohio State has a lot of guys planning what suit and tie they are going to wear to the NFL draft day. That spells upset city. Take Notre Dame and any points you can get on your co-worker, this one is going to be close and I think the Irish will sneak out with a win by 1 or 2 points.
Enjoy the games and have a Happy New Year.
