Do The Numbers Favor Alabama Or Georgia On Saturday?
The National Championship is already set in the minds of plenty of college football fans. Analysts and fans alike are already predicting a Notre Dame/Alabama showdown this January, even though Alabama has yet to win its spot. The Crimson Tide still has to face off with rival Georgia in order to get into the National Championship.
Even though many people think Alabama will be the clear winner, these two foes are more alike than you might think. Here’s a photo that sums up the stats, and they are almost identical.

The big difference between these teams is the number of points they’ve let opponents score. If that’s all analysts are basing this game on, then sure…Alabama will get the “W”. But take a look at every other stat, and it’s a lot tougher to judge who’s going to win.
So far this picture is spreading fast throughout the Twitterverse as people notice how similar these teams really are. Who do you think will come out on top and move on to face Notre Dame?
