Okay, so I understand that the poll is probably going to go overwhelmingly Alabama's way. They're the clear favorite here, no way around it. But what are you guys expecting to see from this game? Blowout? Close one?

I think that it will be a close game, and that it will be a highly defensive battle. I feel like 14 points may win this thing. Both teams have very solid defenses, but I think that Alabama out-muscles Washington and when they need plays they'll create them. My pick:

Alabama 17
Washington 13

Go Dawgs! Can't wait!

It's going to be an uphill battle but my heart says the Dawgs keep it a close game for the most part. I expect Browning to have a tough go. But, I also think the defense will keep them in the game. The coaches will try to establish the run as much as possible.


Spoiler:
Washington shocks the world!

Washington 24 Alabama 23

I haven't even voted. I expect a blowout yet hope for a close game. If it was who do you pick with Bama giving up 21 or something, then I feel I'd have a decision to make. I hope I'm wrong though.

i think it is going to be closer than most expect, i wouldnt expect true frosh to dominate these type of games. at the end bama has superior talent though.

I just hope it's a close game. I somehow doubt it though. Maybe for a half.

It's one of the best in the country. Just doesn't get the recognition.
