Steve Spurrier delivers great quote about SEC and ACC playing for national title
Steve Spurrier, AKA the Head Ball Coach, has never been shy about sharing his opinions.
On Tuesday night, he delivered another great quote when speaking to Florida reporter Pat Dooley. This one involves the 2020 national championship.
Per Dooley, Spurrier said the SEC and ACC should play their seasons and then have their champions play for the national title since that’s usually how it works out, anyway:
Coach Spurrier called a few minutes ago. Said the SEC and ACC should just play their seasons and winners face off for national title because one conference was going to win it anyway.

Indeed, after LSU-Clemson in 2019, there have been a number of Alabama-Clemson matchups for a title over the years.
The Big 12, of course, is still among the Power 5 conferences looking to play this fall, even after the Big Ten and Pac-12 postponed their fall sports seasons. We’ll see what happens, but an ACC-SEC title-game matchup is once again a strong possibility.
