- Tide Drowns Cats, then Dawgs: ‘Bama whips Clemson, Georgia for title
- Baker’s Dozen: Mayfield leads Oklahoma’s 45-point/game offense to 12 wins
- Create Your Own Playoff :19 teams won 10+
Alabama won its fifth national championship of the past nine seasons by avenging the prior year’s title-game loss to Clemson in the semi-finals, then beating Georgia in a thrilling finale. But with a mere three-point victory over Georgia in overtime – after Georgia’s dramatic 54-48 double-OT win against Oklahoma – this playoff begs for a replay, Strat-O-Matic-style.
This playoff produced eight NFL first-round draft picks, including Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, whose 70-percent passing, 12.9 yds/pass and 43 TD passes (vs. just 6 interceptions) led the Sooners’ 45-points/game offense to 12 wins and earned Mayfield the Heisman Trophy and the honor of being the NFL’s No. 1 draft choice.
Perhaps you’d like to see an expanded playoff. Choose from 19 teams who won at least 10 games, including 13-0 University of Central Florida, which beat seventh-ranked Auburn in the Peach Bowl. Maybe add 9-win Stanford, whose RB Bryce Love rushed for 2,118 yards (8.1 average) and 19 TDs to earn unanimous All-America honors.
Prefer conference play? The Southeastern Conference had three teams (Alabama, Georgia, Auburn) ranked in the pre-bowl top seven, had six teams with at least nine wins and sent 11 teams to bowl games. The Big Ten went 7-1 in bowl games. In the Big 12, Mayfield did not even lead his conference in TD passes (Missouri’s Drew Lock threw 44) or passing yards (Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph led the nation with 4,904).
Enjoy a different take with a star-quarterback league. Mayfield, USC’s Sam Darnold, Wyoming’s Josh Allen, UCLA’s Josh Rosena and Louisville’s Lamar Jackson all were NFL first-round draft picks. Rudolph, Lock and Western Kentucky’s Mike White would be worthy challengers.
The mid-major conferences were especially noteworthy this year, starting with UCF. San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny (a first-round draft choice) led the nation with 2,248 rush yards (at 7.8/carry), scoring 23 times. Florida Atlantic RB Devin Singletary led the NCAA with 32 rushing TDs. SMU WR led the nation with 114 catches and Memphis WR Anthony Miller tied for the lead with 18 receiving TDs.
With Strat-O-Matic, you can replay a memorable NCAA season or thrill to what-if replays that could rewrite the conference standings, or create your own national playoff.
