The NCAAF brings more excitement during the Christmas period as the Oklahoma Sooners will clash with the Alabama Crimson Tide. The winner advances to the College Football Playoff Championship Game.
Oklahoma Sooners Form
The Sooners are heading into this game after the beat Texas in the Big 12 title game. They were down 14-6 early in the second quarter against Texas. However, the Sooners got a 27-14 lead and was tied at 27 after three quarters. It seems that they found their motivation deep into the game as they ended on the winning side.
On the offensive side of the game, the Sooners have 49.5 points per game with 577.1 yards per game.
On the defensive side of the field, they allow an average of 32.4 points per game. Therefore, they are placed on the 96th spot in the national defensive rankings.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama is heading into this game on the wings of the 34-27 win against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game on December 1.
The Crimson Tide trailed 28-14 in the third quarter. Yet, they were able to bounce back as they scored the final 21 points. Jalen Hurts managed two late touchdowns thus securing the win.
On the offensive side of the game, the Crimson Tide are putting an average a total of 525.7 yards per game. Also, they have an average of 47.9 points per game so far this season.
On the defensive side of the game, they have conceded an average of 14.8 points per game this season. Therefore, they are the 4th best team in the national defensive rankings.
It seems that both teams are capable of scoring this season. Their offensive firepowers are one of the best in the country. However, both sides are facing some injury problems and that might the downside of this clash. Nevertheless, I expect a very tight game between two efficient teams.
All in all, I think that Alabama has the edge in this one. Go for the Crimson Tide in this one.
