College GameDay analysts predict national champion after Playoff announcement
College GameDay analysts Kirk Herbstreit, Rece Davis and David Pollack, among others, were on ESPN Sunday for 4 hours announcing the Playoff field and breaking the matchups down.
The College Football Playoff selection committee revealed Sunday that No. 1 Alabama will play No. 4 Cincinnati in the Cotton Bowl, while No. 2 Michigan will play No. 3 Georgia in the Orange Bowl.
Just before ESPN’s selection show ended, the ESPN analysts revealed their national title predictions. Three of the analysts predicted Georgia will win it all, while Alabama and Michigan got 1 prediction each:
David Pollack: Georgia Bulldogs
Joey Galloway: Georgia Bulldogs
Jesse Palmer: Georgia Bulldogs
Chris “Bear” Fallica: Alabama Crimson Tide
Rece Davis: Michigan Wolverines
David Pollack predicted Georgia would win the national title before the season, and he’s sticking to it even after the SEC Championship Game struggles. Joey Galloway thinks that UGA will now play with a much bigger edge and come back with a vengeance after the conference championship loss.
Rece Davis was the lone non-SEC pick (Michigan) of the analysts.
This is an intriguing Playoff final 4, and most are predicting that it will be an all-SEC national title again and a rematch between Alabama and Georgia.
