My favorite part about the new Georgia Tech basketball season is the excitement it brings to the fans. Georgia Tech fans are more than ready to see their alma mater take home another national championship. A win over Clemson would put Georgia Tech in the College Football Playoff. It will be a big game…but it will also be a big win for Georgia Tech fans.
This is how it works for Georgia Tech fans. Every year, the NCAA releases a poll to find out which schools will be in and which will be out. And this year, Georgia Tech is ranked #18. Last year, the team’s ranking was #6. This year, it’s ranked #14. And of course, the team’s ranking puts it in the top 20 of college basketball.
This year? UGA fans can finally add another school to the list of teams ranked in the College Football Playoff. This move is the result of an updated NCAA Championship Committee poll that only includes teams ranked 20-24 in the NCAA Tournament. Georgia Tech is ranked 20, and is in the top ten this year. Georgia Tech will be in the top 10 in the College Football Playoff this year.
Georgia Tech is the third ranked team in the CFP poll, behind Alabama and Oklahoma State, but it is also the only team with a top ten ranking in the CFP. Georgia Tech is also the only team in the top ten of the CFP that did not also make the College Football Playoff.
In other words, Georgia Tech will be ranked top ten in the CFP by a team that has just been to the CFP Championship game.
The Bulldogs are probably the most decorated team in the nation in terms of winning. There is no more exciting story than the comeback in the 2014 CFP Championship game against Oklahoma State. Georgia has had some pretty great wins over the past several years, but the 2014 win was pretty special. Georgia’s fans were going crazy, Georgia’s players were jumping up and down, and Georgia was up 20-14 after it was down to its final three seconds.
The Bulldogs are the only undefeated team in the nation, and there is no team in the country that comes close to the Bulldogs in terms of wins, but there is no better rivalry than the one between Georgia and their archrival, Alabama. The Tide have been dominant over the past few years, but Alabama has never lost in the CFP Championship game. There is no better rivalry than the one between Alabama and Georgia.
Georgia and Alabama have never faced each other this year and are currently in a bit of a slump. While Georgia will be favored in the SEC Tournament, the Tide are still expected to go up against one of the two best teams in the nation and beat them. If the Bulldogs beat Alabama, it would be the first time in more than a decade that the two teams would meet on the same night.
The game is on Saturday night. It is also the SEC Tournament. The Tide are expected to be favored by a lot and the Bulldogs are expected to be favored by a little. That means that Alabama and Georgia will play each other in the SEC Tournament. This game can actually affect the rankings in some way. If Alabama wins by a lot, but Georgia wins by a little, then Alabama will be ranked higher.
This is a big one because it comes about because the polls put Georgia in the top 4 of the SEC, so that makes Georgia the second team to play in the game and the second team to be ranked in the poll. The polls have put Alabama in the top 4 in the SEC, so this game will make Alabama higher in the polls.
