The eagerly awaited score prediction from a former expert

I’ll be the first to admit it. My predictions have run hot and cold all season. Hot to start, cold after that before a near perfect score against Tennessee. Who can figure it? Don’t worry about losing cash by following my pick today since no sports book is accepting bets on this one. Just for fun in this week’s guess:

Let’s be honest here. Georgia Southern is a very good football program. It’s not your average FCS squad and certainly much better than the Georgia State team that came to Tuscaloosa a year ago. The Eagles just aren’t in the same league of a program like Alabama. The size, the speed, the talent is just on a different level.

It’s really a matter of how bad the Tide wants to make it. Considering a trip to Auburn is just seven days away, the desire to rest the starters as much as possible will keep the final score from getting out of hand. It won’t be close, but scoring records won’t be set this afternoon.

Alabama 42, Georgia Southern 3

Now take a spin down memory lane with my game-prediction track-record.
