College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl
This game is one of two College Football Playoff national semifinals. The other is the Cotton Bowl Classic between #2 Clemson and #3 Notre Dame.
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide
The Crimson Tide are the defending national champion, having defeated Georgia in last season’s CFP National Championship as the #4 team. This season, Alabama has been at the top of the polls all season, and is coming off of a victory over Georgia in the SEC Championship Game.
The Tide have rolled (pun intended) through the 2018 college football season. In 12 games against FBS opponents – they played FCS school The Citadel this season – they won by an average of 33.1 points per game. In SEC play, the margin went down a bit… to 29.8.
