Georgia vs. TCU National Championship: Preview & Prediction

Georgia vs. TCU National Title Preview & Prediction

The undefeated and technically returning champs Georgia Bulldogs had to rally back from double digits twice to beat Ohio State 42-41. The Texas Christian Horned Frogs were able to hold off a Michigan comeback by routinely making plays back stunting the Wolverines momentum. And now here we are in a matchup not many folks in the media would’ve guess we would get with TCU making the title game. Both teams have strong offenses but the Bulldogs have a sizable advantage on defense. Of course it didn’t necessarily appear that way against the Buckeyes.

That said let’s not forget the talent Ohio State has in the passing department. That’s not to say TCU QB Max Duggan and WR Quentin Johnston can’t air it out with the best of them. But the real question will be can TCU run the ball with consistency? We still don’t know 100% if RB Kendre Miller will play and if so will he be as effective as he was during a year in which he stacked up almost 1400 rushing yards, 17 touchdowns, and averaged 6.2 yards per carry. But we can’t sleep on his backup RB Emari Demercado who rushed for 150 yards and a TD versus a normally stingy Michigan defense. Controlling the clock is a key however TCU is known for quick-strike scoring drives so how far do they want to wander away from what go them here?

Also, something to think about is the Georgia defense only giving up 77 rushing yards a game compared to almost 150 yards giving up by TCU. Stuffing the run and somewhat limiting the explosive plays will be a key for the Bulldogs because their all fully capable of running the ball. They have quarterback in Stetson Bennett with a ton of experience in big spots who won’t try to make a play that’s not their generally speaking. Will the Bulldogs be hung over from having to mount that comeback facing the type of adversity they hadn’t seen prior? Or was that the best chance to beat Georgia, now the team got humbled and are ready to get back to their bread and butter on defense?

The spread got as high as -13.5 for Georgia which this College Football junkie jumped all over on the plus side. Currently it sits at 12.5 and all though Georgia will win the game I don’t see TCU coming out flat and even if that’s the case they will make enough plays to sneak under the point spread. With an over/under set at 63 look for this one to go over and it could be a late score by the Horned Frogs. It’s been one helluva ride watching TCU this season and as a fan I really hope they win this game. It was already a big deal for a TCU vs. Kansas State Big-12 title matchup given the conference will lose Oklahoma and Texas. If TCU wins the Natty it would be bonkers for that league and the state of Texas along with all of us fans that got to sit back and enjoy the ride.

My Pick: Georgia Wins Championship +12.5 TCU Over 63
