In NCAA Football game, we will see Oklahoma at Alabama.
Oklahoma enters the postseason as they beat Texas in the Big 12 title game. Kyler Murray won the Heisman trophy and the school earned the award for a second consecutive year after Baker Mayfield won the same award last season. This is an offense-oriented team that always tries to score more than it concedes. I’m sure that the neutrals will enjoy this game as I expect the Sooners to put up big numbers on Alabama. Oklahoma averages 49.5 points per game while allowing 32.4 points.
Alabama saw its QB Tagovailoa getting injured in the SEC title game against Georgia and the team needed to come back from a large deficit in the third quarter, in order to win the game and earn another CFP berth. The team finished undefeated and Tagovailoa is expected to return to action in this one. The Crimson Tide are averaging 47.9 points per game while allowing just 14.8 points.
I expect this to be a shootout but not a competitive shootout. I’m sure that the Crimson Tide will force some turnovers early in the game and get a big lead while Oklahoma will try to get back in the game.
