Paul Finebaum staff ranks 3 SEC teams among 10 squads under most pressure to win title
The Clemson Tigers dominated the Alabama Crimson Tide in January to claim their second College Football Playoff title in four years.
The Crimson Tide, of course, have two of the last four titles, so it isn’t like they’re in danger of falling from the top echelon of college football teams any time soon.
However, on Monday, the staff of “The Paul Finebaum Show” on the SEC Network ranked the 10 teams under the most pressure to win the 2019 title. As you can see below, they had Alabama at No. 1, followed by Georgia at No. 2 and LSU at No. 9:

The Tide are seemingly under a lot of pressure, especially since QB Tua Tagovailoa is likely to leave for the NFL Draft after the season. However, it only makes sense to have Alabama at No. 1 if Clemson wins the title. Nick Saban wouldn’t want Dabo Swinney to win another title over him.
This year’s battle for a title will be fun to watch though, and the stakes are high for these nine teams (and the entire Pac-12).
