Athlon Sports predicts Georgia, Clemson will meet in College Football Playoff

Fans anticipating the renewal of a rivalry between Georgia and Clemson may not have to wait too much longer, according to Athlon Sports. 

Recent rumors that the teams might pop up on each other’s schedules as early as 2021 caused a buzz on social media, but the annual bowl predictions from Athlon Sports have the two meeting in Miami later this year. 


The path Athlon predicts for the Bulldogs isn’t exactly clear. An earlier ranking of the SEC has Georgia falling behind after the conference championship. 


This made some fans skeptical about the predictions, which include two SEC teams in the playoffs for a second year in a row. 


SEC title or not, Athlon Sports has consistently named Georgia a national front-runner since releasing a preseason top 25 in May.
