Sporting News envisions a Georgia-Alabama matchup in the SEC Championship Game.
The season almost is upon us, but there’s still time for outlets to make their preseason predictions. Sporting News’ Bill Bender made his voice heard with a forecast for the SEC.
To little surprise, Sporting News picks Alabama to win the conference. Check out part of his explanation below:
That’s a four-peat, both in the SEC and the College Football Playoff. We’re still living by the same-old saying: The season doesn’t start until Alabama loses.
The only problem with that analysis? There’s a chance Alabama won’t lose this season.
Yes, the Crimson Tide will be loaded again. Led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, Alabama figures to be a force in the SEC West once more. Many envision Auburn becoming a threat for the Crimson Tide, but it’s easy to envision the Crimson Tide capturing another SEC title.
We’ll find out soon enough if Sporting News and many others who have jumped on the Alabama bandwagon are correct.
