College Football Duo of Action: Auburn at #5 Georgia & Florida State at #3 Notre Dame
This is one of the few college football seasons where we can very few complaints about how the playoff committee has the top 4 ranked right now.
The teams that are there overwhelmingly deserve to be so, but they will also know that there are still a few teams with a shot at knocking them out.
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish may be forced to sweat it out even if they go unbeaten, as a 1-loss Power 5 conference team may just oust them. The Georgia Bulldogs have perhaps the best shot at being that team, so it’s safe to say that these two teams have important games this week.
Let’s take a closer look with our College Football Duo of Action.
Auburn Tigers at #5 Georgia Bulldogs
After losing to Tennessee as a 14 ½ point favorite a few weeks ago, a lot of us thought that the Tigers might be ready to end the season with a whimper. After all, that defeat represented the second straight game that they had lost as a favorite, with the offense once again misfiring. This Auburn team has bounced back with 2-straight wins and can kill any chance that Georgia has of making the playoffs with a win here. That said, they have yet to beat the Dawgs in their last 5 trips to Athens.
The danger for Georgia here is that they will have a letdown after securing the SEC East with a big win over the Kentucky Wildcats last week. This is a team that many feel are on the brink of being a dynasty, though, and the experience they gained from making it to the National Championship last season should help them here. Since losing to LSU, the Dawgs have won back to back games, covering the spread in both. They come into this one as a 14-point favorite, which may seem a little high to some.
The Georgia running game has once again been on point this season and I think it will be again this week. I see them wearing down the Tigers D on the way to a win.
Predicted Score: Auburn Tigers 17 | Georgia Bulldogs 35
Florida State Seminoles at #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish
With just a few weeks left in the regular season, the Florida State Seminoles are in a position where they may not even become bowl eligible. They are just 4-5 on the season and have now lost 3 of their last 4, including back to back blowouts at the hands of Clemson and NC State. They come into this one as a 16 ½ point underdog and are just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 road games. They are 4-1 SU in previous games versus Notre Dame, but those wins came when this program was still elite.
This should be a game that the Irish come out and win comfortably, and you almost feel that they need to do that, as they are going to need to continue to impress the playoff committee in order to maintain their top 4 status. Notre Dame have been involved in a few squeakers against lesser opposition this season, going 4-4-1 ATS, so they need to come out and make a statement here with a big win.
I think that Notre Dame come out at home and get the win that they need, and I also think they cover the spread.
Predicted Score: Florida State Seminoles 19 | Notre Dame Fighting Irish 39
