Championship weekend is upon us, so while there are less games this weekend they’re supposed to be more competitive. We’ll see how that goes. The match-up of the weekend will be Alabama looking to continue their perfect season in the SEC Championship versus the Georgia Bulldogs, who have somewhat of a home advantage with the game behind played in Atlanta. That said, even if this game was played in Athens I’m not sure it would be very close. The Tide look as dominant as they’ve ever been.
Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship should be a great game between Utah and Washington, with the Utes looking to avenge their regular season loss to the Huskies earlier this season. The B1G 10 game between Northwestern and Ohio State doesn’t really do much for me, but local Wildcat alumni will certainly be out and about this weekend (at least, before kickoff).
