ABOUT THE FWAA-NFF SUPER 16 POLL: The FWAA-NFF Super 16 Poll was established at the conclusion of the 2013 season by long-time partners, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and the National Football Foundation (NFF). Voters rank the top 16 teams in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, and the results will be released every Sunday of the 2022 season; the individual votes of all members will also be made public. The first regular season poll will be released on Tuesday, Sept. 6 (to account for Labor Day games), and the final poll will be released Sunday, Dec. 4. The pollsters consist of FWAA writers and College Football Hall of Famers who were selected to create a balanced-geographical perspective. The poll utilizes a computer program designed by Sports Systems to compile the rankings.




CFP Championship – Bama vs Bulldogs in Classic Title Matchup

College Football Playoff National Championship
Bama vs Bulldogs in Classic Title Matchup

The 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship game is set for Lucas Stadium in Indianapolis Indiana. It’s a rare rematch of the SEC title game between Alabama and Georgia just four weeks ago. Bama had a dominant title game winning 41-24 with the score no indication of the matchup. The final features #1 vs #2 with both clubs 13-1. Georgia was undefeated entering the SEC title game and is quietly looking for revenge for the disappointing performance. Each team had an impressive Semi-final win, Bama vs Cincinnati 27-6 and Georgia 34-11 over Michigan. Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young outclassed the Bulldogs QB Stetson Bennett in the title game and had Georgia trailing from early in the contest. Young gives the Tide the trump card that has spelled the difference in big matchups.

The college football season comes down to the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs squaring off in the College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T (Monday, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN).

The eighth final of the College Football Playoff will truly represent the top two teams. The Tide is seeking their 7th national championship in the past 13 seasons and their second back to back title. The Bulldogs are seeking their first since 1980. Georgia HC Kirby Smart hopes to break a winless streak (0-4) against his former boss, Alabama coach Nick Saban. Georgia lost to Bama in the 2018 Championship game after leading at halftime 13-0. Bama behind Tuo Tagovailoa spearheaded the comeback in overtime with a thrilling 41 yard TD pass to another Bama Heisman Trophy winner wideout DeVonta Smith.

It will be Alabama’s 6th appearance in the national final in the past seven years, including last year’s title-winning contest. The Tide has won the last seven meetings between the teams under legendary coach Nick Saban. Tide rolls behind the magic of QB Bryce Young.

Prediction: Alabama 27 – Georgia 13




It’s All SEC for National Title – Alabama vs Georgia

It’s All SEC for National Title
Alabama and Georgia Impress in Semi-final Matchups

Both SEC teams won their Semi-final games to earn the CFP national championship on January 10th.

Alabama and Georgia had strong wins in last Friday’s semi-finals. Bama methodically defeated Cincinnati 27-6 in the Cotton Bowl to retain their #1 ranking entering the title game. Georgia was just as impressive drilling Michigan in the Orange Bowl 34-11.

They will meet in a rematch of the 2021 SEC title game where Bama smashed the Bulldogs perfect season with a 41-24 victory. The score does not reflect the fact that the Tide dominated from the opening kickoff and the final looks closer than the actual contest. Alabama has won seven straight against Georgia, including that overtime triumph in the CFP title game, and three SEC championship game victories, the most recent coming Dec. 4.

The 2022 title game has all the makings of a Classic close matchup despite the SEC title game lopsided game. Georgia spent most of the season as the #1 team, while Alabama ranked high though rarely dominated after midseason.

College Football Playoff – Championship Week

College Football Playoff

Dec. 1, 2021

Michigan scored their most impressive victory of the Jim Harbaugh era with a strong win over rival Ohio State last week. The Wolverines upset the Buckeyes 42-27 at the Big House, that pushed them into the #2 spot of the new College Playoff rankings. The final rankings will determine which four teams will play in the two CFP semifinals on New Year’s Eve and will be released Sunday, Dec. 5 at noon on ESPN.

Unbeaten Georgia remained No. 1 for the fifth consecutive week, followed by Michigan, Alabama, Cincinnati, Oklahoma State and Notre Dame.

Michigan faces #13 Iowa this Saturday in the Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis. If they win they figure to play in a CFP semifinal at either the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic or Capital One Orange Bowl.

Georgia reached 12-0 for the first time since its last national championship season in 1980 with a 45-0 victory at Georgia Tech on Saturday. The Bulldogs play Alabama in Saturday’s SEC championship game in Atlanta. Georgia might get into the CFP even if it loses to the Crimson Tide because of its dominance this season. They may be the only club who could lose this week and still retain a position in the top four teams.

Undefeated Cincinnati plays Houston in the AAC Championship this Saturday and with a win they probably retain a position in the top four clubs. Both Oklahoma State and Notre Dame are one loss teams that need one of the top clubs to lose this week to move up a few positions to get into the magic four teams.
