Alabama will take on Washington in the Peach Bowl in a College Football Playoff matchup.
Regardless of the outcome of the SEC Championship, it looked like Alabama was headed to another College Football Playoff. The Crimson Tide were the only Power Five team who were undefeated heading into college football’s championship weekend. Alabama did not disappoint with their blowout win over Florida to win the SEC.
Alabama had unofficially locked up the top seed and were waiting to see if they would face Penn State, Ohio State or Washington. Washington held on to the final playoff spot and gets the “good news” of facing the Crimson Tide in Atlanta.
Both teams feature dynamic offenses and an equally imposing defenses. Alabama receivers Calvin Ridley and ArDarius Stewart will face one of the best secondaries in the country. Washington speedster John Ross will look to give Washington a spark against a relentless Alabama defense.
