      It's down to a three man race.

      With one game to go, I lead the TGT group with 477 points (40 remaining) , followed closely by Tigerjustin who has 471 (39 remaining) and then cdj who has 456 (40 remaining).

      Unfortunately CLW is 53 points out of 1st with only a max of 36 points remaining. Those lost 28 points on the NC AT&T pick comes back to haunt CLW.

      So it's all down which team cdj, Tigerjustin and myself pick. Either we all pick the same team and I end up guaranteed victory regardless of the result, or we pick differently and I'm sweating out the National Championship Game.

      And it all comes down to me and Tigerjustin13. I picked Alabama (cdj also picked Alabama, so he can't catch up to me) while Tigerjustin13 took Clemson.

      Now I've got to sweat out this national title game and hope for Alabama to actually win if I'm gonna win the group.

      So far, it's been big plays. Bama up 16-14 early second.

      Rooting for Clemson here, but really shouldn't care either way. These two programs are so far ahead of everyone else right now, they don't need any additional titles/help.

      Yeah, only reason I have for rooting for Alabama is to win this. Otherwise, I'd much rather see Clemson win.

      I will say, this is one hell of a game so far! Despite yet another Clemson-Alabama match-up, I'd definitely rather have these two playing tonight than Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Georgia, Ohio State or UCF. Much more explosive game than we'd like see from the other teams that were in the running.

      Alright, now this game has just turned plain embarrassing. Good god Nick Saban and Alabama are getting their asses handed to them.

      Happy for Clemson. mainly due to the success Venables has had with their defense. He got a bum rap from the OU fans, including myself after a few of the games. Of course nobody expected Mike to turn us into one of the worst defenses in the country.

      OU did put up 34 points on Bama. Spotting anyone 28 points is bad, spotting Bama 28 points is suicide. Before tonight it was the most points against Bama since Clemson threw up 35 on them in the 2016/2017 title game. Just FYI.
