    Conference Championship Preview


    Atlantic Coast Conference

    [​IMG] VS. [​IMG]

    #1 Florida State vs. #2 Georgia Tech

    Florida State enters this game currently on a 26 game winning streak under Coach Runthepound. The Seminoles won the ACC Title as well as the National Championship last season. Last season, FSU was loaded with talent and they are good this year as well, just not quite as good. Jason Scott and Darrell Parham have shared the QB duties and Dusty Thompson has been a bright spot as a true Fr. at the HB spot. Florida State has been pretty balanced on offense. They bring in the #16 Rushing Offense and the #10 Passing offense. They are the #2 scoring offense in the country.

    Georgia Tech has been hanging around the top of the ACC every since Coach G-Unit has been at the helm. Tech has won the ACC Coastal division the last 3 season but has come up short in the Conference title game each year and hasn't won it since 2010. Georgia Tech also lost some great talent last season but has reloaded with more great players. Mark Sowell stepped in at QB this season and has been very consistent and efficient. Reggie Foster has been the workhorse and has been very productive with his versatility. Georgia Tech brings in the #5 rushing and #3 scoring offense. Tech passing offense isn't as highly touted as their rushing attack is, but that is only because Reggie Foster has been productive.

    Tech comes into this game with the #1 rushing defense in the country. Will the Noles be able to run the ball and keep a balanced attack like they have all year? Or will they have to rely more on their passing game? Will Tech be able to run the ball and let Reggie Foster take control of the game? Or will Mark Sowell have to step up and bethe team leader Coach G-Unit knows he can be? Will Coach RTP's and FSU's big game experience help give them the upper hand or will Georgia Tech outshine the Noles on the big stage? This game should be very close to the very end. Whichever teams comes out on top will be the front runner for the National Title.



    Southeastern Conference

    #3 Lousiana State vs. #5 University of Florida

    LSU came into this season as a favorite to contend for the national title. Despite their week 7 home loss to Florida(30-28), LSU is sitting pretty heading into the SEC Championship game. The year started on a whirl wind for LSU with the Mike Pennington for Heisman campaign. MTV's 'Hard Knocks' was on campus recording the daily lives of the star LSU players. After the heart breaking loss to UF, Coach Shadow decided all the attention from the media was overdone and decided to shut the show down. That is when the team rallied together to finish the season strong. LSU has been playing like a well oiled machine since the UF loss and has one thing on their mind and that is revenge. One of the greatest combos in college football will be taking the field in this game and that is QB Mike Pennington and Albert Gray. Those two have a special bond that produces big plays on the field.

    Florida comes into this game still licking their wounds from a home loss to the current #1 team in the country, FSU. A game they had circled since last season loss to the Noles, ended in dissapointment again. Despite the loss, Joel Brown is still having an All American type year. He has had a lot of help this season from Freshman sensation HB Andrew Garrison. Garrison has been phenominal on the ground gashing defenses for big gains. Florida currently has the #4 rushing offense in the country and are also the #4 in terms of PPG. 5* Freshamn wideout JJ Haley has olympic speed and has also stepped up for the Gators. With speed like Haley has, any play in his direction has been one tackle away from a TD.

    LSU brings the #4 rushing defense in the country and the #10 total defense. Besides their loss to Florida earlier in the season, LSU has played lights out on Defense. The question is, will they be able to recover the fumbles, hold onto the picks, and Coach Shadow's kryptonite in big games, will they be able to stop the 3rd and short downs? Florida will have work to do as well. They are stellar at stopping the run, but how will they do this time against the dynamic duo of Pennington and Gray? And if they stop the duo, who else will Penningotn turn to? Is LSU ready to step up and contend for the big game or are they comfortable hiding in the shadows? (pun intended)

    Needless to say, 2 HUGE games that will most lkely determine who plays for the 2015 National Championship.
