The final college football game of the season is tonight, with the College Football Playoff championship game between Clemson and Alabama. This gives "The Book" one last shot at a pick and believe it or not, after 744 games in the 2016 season, a chance to get over .500 on the year as we currently stand exactly at that number. So a win and we can proudly be "bowl eligible" and a loss and we stay home for the prediction holidays.
The Book went 21-19 for the bowl season, including a 15-6 record in games between two power five programs and 5-1 in the New Year's Six games and 1-1 in the CFP semi finals.
In this game, the Book is taking Alabama. Personally, I am leaning Clemson and taking the 6 that Danny Sheridan posted for the opening line, but the math here still favors the Tide.
Enjoy the game, the final rankings will be released on January 11.
