NCAAF National Championship
TCU vs Georgia Over 63.5
Georgia has been so dominant at times this season, it’s easy to forget just how much the Bulldogs lost to the NFL Draft last season, especially on the defensive end. Georgia caught Oregon in the opening game of the season with a new coach and quarterback, holding the Ducks to three points in a dominating performance. But after that, Georgia didn’t see an upper-tier offense for the next two months. Now that the Bulldogs have seen a handful of above-average offenses over the last month, it’s fair to question just how much this group was tested during the course of the regular season. LSU earned 549 yards on 7.6 yards per play in the SEC Championship Game. Ohio State gained 467 yards on 7.1 yards per play in the Peach Bowl, and the Buckeyes were missing key players on offense. TCU’s offense is built on hitting the big play, and the Bulldogs’ defense has shown that they are not infallible to giving them up. Quentin Johnston and Taye Barber combined for nearly 1,700 yards and 11 touchdowns this season at nearly 18 yards per reception. Horned Frogs’ running back Kendre Miller is questionable for tonight’s contest, and if he is limited, that would likely put the ball in Max Duggan’s hands even more than it normally is (Ohio State used that same approach with much success since the Buckeyes’ running back rotation was limited). Stetson Bennett has the chance to put his name into some rare company with a second national title win, and he showed that he’s capable of living up to the pressure in that Peach Bowl comeback over the Buckeyes. The best path for success for both teams will likely include the use of a high-tempo offense at times. This should be a fun affair, with neither team letting their foot off the gas until the clock says 00:00. Both semifinals went comfortably over the total, and we envision a similar script here.
