So ESPN does this elaborate “What If There Were a 64-Team Tournament for the 2019 Football Season?” exercise, and it turns out to be nothing more than a troll of the Georgia fan base.
(1) Alabama 31, (1) Georgia 30: After playing just twice in a decade, the Tide and Bulldogs meet for the third straight season in an extremely high-stakes matchup. Once again, Georgia takes an early lead behind Fromm’s precision passing and two Swift touchdown runs. And for the third straight year, Alabama breaks Georgia’s heart because of a backup quarterback. Mac Jones comes off the bench to relieve an injured Tagovailoa and find Ruggs for the winning touchdown pass with 6 seconds left.
If Mac Jones beats Georgia with six seconds to go, Kirby Smart will officially have become college football’s 21st century version of Marv Levy.
At least there’s no mention of a fake punt.
