Arkansas Fight SEC Predictions, Championship Week

Can Florida give Bama a game?

The Hogs have wrapped up their regular season (with an anticipated bowl announcement on Sunday!), but the SEC have a handful of games left to play on Saturday, highlighted by the championship game in Atlanta.

Alabama has gotten better and better as the season has gone along, as if they weren’t good enough in week 1. The Mac-Jones-to-Devonta-Smith connection has been unstoppable, and one of those two will likely win this season’s Heisman.

On the other side of the field, Florida will be looking to keep up, and they have their own dynamic Kyle-Trask-to-Kyle-Pitts connection that continues to embarrass defenses. But how’s the team’s psyche right now? They just dealt themselves a shocking (but hilarious!) loss to LSU, under foggy, shoe-filled skies. On the plus side, what do they have to lose at this point?

The Gators have pretty much been written-off, as an 17.5-point underdog. If they lose, who cares? If they win, it’s the beginning of a seismic shift in the SEC.

And you can never tell with expected blow-outs. If poor, pitiful LSU can knock off a top five opponent on the road, couldn’t Florida beat Alabama? Was the preceding question a Tenet-level paradox?

Do you give Florida any kind of a chance? Let us know in the comments!
