Can Huskies Crack ‘Bama D?
The 2016 Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl will feature the Washington Huskies and the Alabama Crimson Tide. Both will be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Georgia Dome and hoping for a spot in the College Football Playoff Championship Game. The Peach Bowl is one of the highest paying games of the Bowl Season. The game always sells out and is usually a great game.
Oddsmakers currently have the Crimson Tide listed as 14½-point favorites versus the Huskies, while the game’s total is sitting at 53.
In their last action, Washington was a 41-10 winner at home against Colorado Buffaloes. They covered the -8-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (51) was profitable news for UNDER bettors. Sophomore quarterback Jake Browning passed for 3,280 yards and a school-record 42 touchdownsthis year. While winning Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year honors he put up astounding numbers. He threw a school-record six touchdown passes twice this season. What is scary is he has just scratching his potential.
Alabama hammered Florida in their last game, 54-16. It wrapped up their SEC Championship and secured their spot in the College Football Playoff. The Crimson Tide have scored 10 defensive touchdowns this season. It is the as the most opportunistic defense in the country. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts is a multi-dimensional QB who has accounted for 34 touchdowns this year. He has passed for 2,592 yards and rushed for 841 while masterfully running the offense.
The QB can also join Oklahoma’s Jamelle Holieway (1985) as the only true freshman quarterbacks to lead a team to a national title.
