Below is the final pick from Norman Arey’s bowl predictions column. His summary: A 27-24 win by Alabama. The final: Tide 26, Georgia 23.
#4 Alabama vs. #3 Georgia – Here we are, the scenario the Bulldog Nation has been howling for since 1982. A real shot at another national title that has deftly eluded the Dawgs for years. It’ll be dramatic with pupil Kirby Smart going against his mentor, Nick Saban. The Bulldogs finally fulfill what many believe to be their destiny and take the national crown back to Athens. IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Alabama will play just well enough to bring the National Title back to Tuscaloosa and Nick Saban leaves Atlanta with a really big smile, 27-24.
