The Final Four in college football is set-
#1 Alabama Crimson Tide 11-0 record and the clear top seed, though if Trevor Lawrence had played in Clemson’s first game against Notre Dame they likely would have won and been the top seed. Alabama has an explosive offense and good defense.
#4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 10-1 record and the best choice to be the 4th seed if you weren’t going to put the Cincinnati Bearcats (9-0) or the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (11-0) in there. I don’t want to hear from Texas A&M, they got blown out by Alabama the same way Notre Dame got beat down by Clemson. So yeah, the Irish likely get blown out here but the Aggies would have been blown out as well.
#2 Clemson Tigers 10-1 record, with that loss coming to Notre Dame when they didn’t have Trevor Lawrence. Good offense and defense and should win their game.
#3 Ohio State Buckeyes 6-0 record though they didn’t look all that good against Northwestern. If Justin Fields can shake off the horrible game he had against the Wildcats, they should make it close. They just need to manufacture enough points.
Both game are on January 1, 2021, with the winners facing ten days later on January 11 to crown the National Champion.
