Saturday’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl promises to be epic. Huskies fans have taunted “We want Bama” and they’re about to get their wish.
These two schools have met exactly four times in their history: New Years Day in the 1926 Rose Bowl, in 1975 U-Dub came to Tuscaloosa, three years later the Tide traveled to Seattle and their last meeting was on Christmas Day 1986 in the Sun Bowl. Each meeting resulted in a glorious victory for the Crimson Tide.
That was then. This is now.
Alabama faithful know only too well the nation sees Alabama as villains. The Tide is the defending National Champion with the nation’s longest winning streak. Washington has had a miraculous one-loss season but they are a 14-point underdog. The last time the Huskies were National Champions was 25 years ago.
Alabama enters the Playoffs undefeated and looking to keep that record intact to become the first repeat Playoff era champion. Legendary coach Paul “Bear” Bryant won six national championships. Nick Saban has won five. Winning against Washington moves Saban closer to tying “The Bear”.
I believe with all my heart my beloved Crimson Tide will defeat the Huskies. It’s their destiny. The players want the win for school pride and they want it for Coach Saban.
So...get your hate on. The Huskies will leave the Georgia Dome like yelping pups with their tails tucked between their legs having faced college football’s most powerful dynasty.
