first_imgPaul Finebaum explains why Clemson will lose.There are several major college football bowl games on tap for today, but ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum singled out two.Those games:LSU vs. UCF in the Fiesta BowlTexas vs. Georgia in the Sugar BowlThe ESPN college football analyst made his predictions for those two major contests.Finebaum is predicting an upset in the first one. He likes UCF.“I think there’s great significance for the little guys out there, the Group of 5 and all those not quite sitting at the elite table with the Alabamas, and the Clemsons and the Ohio States,” Finebaum said. “This isn’t quite the stakes of last season when UCF was the only undefeated team. That’s why their fans claimed a national championship. They can’t do that this year because of Alabama and Clemson, but they will have a parade and they’ll beat an SEC team. And that’ll hurt because Ed Orgeron won’t get to 10 wins and the season will end badly for him.”That would make two straight big bowl wins for UCF, which defeated Auburn last season.Finebaum likes Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.“There was a narrative going into this game a couple days ago that maybe Georgia wouldn’t be motivated, but I think what happened Saturday will motivation them,” Finebaum said. “They have a chance to prove again that the (CFB Playoff selection) committee got it wrong. And by winning tonight and looking impressive, that’s what the takeaway will be for many people. That Georgia should’ve been in there.“It doesn’t matter now, but I think it does to Kirby Smart’s team. This is the team that gave Alabama the best game of the season and a win tonight over a good Texas team, not a great one, they can walk out of the season with their heads high.”LSU and UCF are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. Georgia and Texas will play at 8:45 p.m. E.T.last_img read more
