Most people trying to predict how the college football season will go down this season don’t have any undefeated teams making it to the playoffs except for maybe Clemson. The Tigers have a bit of an easier schedule than everyone else with their only true test coming against Florida State. Alabama might have the toughest gauntlet to run through playing in the SEC West.
The Crimson Tide should be stout again this year, but a lot of people see LSU possibly breaking through their Bama rut and beating them with Leonard Fournette finally getting some help in the air with the improvement of Brandon Harris. However, the SEC Network has other ideas and think a very run-heavy team will get the better of the Tide this season.
Arkansas showed flashes of improvement last year, but it didn’t seem like enough to beat a strong squad like Alabama’s. It seems former Bama quarterback Greg McElroy and former Razorbacks QB Clint Stoerner might know something we don’t about the teams. This season also seems like the one where Tennessee has a legitimate chance of of beating their permanent SEC West rival. That’s why you play the season though!
