Trav’s 2022 College Playoffs Predictions

Heading into conference championships weekend there were scenarios that could affect the college football playoffs. Georgia, Michigan, TCU, and USC were the top 4 in place. Ohio State and Alabama were lurking at the 5th and 6th spot. Georgia blasted LSU in the SEC Championship by routing them by 20. Michigan handled Purdue in the Big 10 championship game. TCU was upset by Kansas State in the Big 12 title game. Utah manhandled USC in the Pac-12 championship game. The top 2 spots were solidified with Georgia and Michigan after their undefeated seasons. TCU was still safe in my opinion after finishing the regular season undefeated. The Trojans lost their second game and was beat handily by the Utes. The final four came out to be Georgia, Michigan, TCU, and Ohio State. Georgia battles Ohio State in the Peach Bowl. Michigan and TCU meet in the Fiesta Bowl.

The first game takes place on Saturday, December 31st at 4 p.m. The 2nd ranked Michigan Wolverines will battle the 3rd ranked TCU Horned Frogs. As we all know, Michigan comes into this game undefeated and winners of the Pac-12. TCU finished the regular season undefeated but fell to Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship game. The Wolverines use their physicality on both sides of the ball to wear opposing teams down. TCU use that same formula to wear opponents down. Michigan has a better offense and defense, but the Horned Frogs are feisty. Max Duggan, the TCU signal caller is also a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. Duggan’s willingness and determination will keep this Horned Frogs team fighting. The offensive and defensive lines of the Wolverines will eventually wear down TCU and allow Michigan to advance to the title game. Wolverines Win 31-21

 

The Peach Bowl takes place in Atlanta and the game will be played on Saturday Night. The top-ranked Georgia Bulldogs battle the 4th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. At the beginning of the year, many wanted this for the title game. Georgia had a couple of hiccups during the season, but they continued to roll. Ohio State dominated everyone except in their finale against Michigan. Jaxon Smith-Njigba will not play in the game after declaring for the NFL Draft. The absence of Smith-Njigba will take away one of C.J. Stroud’s big weapons. With the game being in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the Bulldogs will have a homefield advantage. This should be a great game between these two powerhouses. C.J. Stroud can show he’s the potential top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft with a win, but I’m picking Georgia. Bulldogs Win 38-28
