Tim Tebow thinks two teams will be above the rest in the SEC in 2018.
Alabama and Georgia met in a thrilling national title game last month, with the Crimson Tide winning in overtime.
Would anyone be surprised if they had a rematch in the SEC title game next December? We wouldn’t.
Tim Tebow apparently wouldn’t either. Tebow offered his thoughts on all things SEC football to SEC Country this week.
When it comes to predicting division winners, Tebow is going with the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs. This should be a popular pick.
Alabama won the SEC West three straight years before Auburn snapped the streak in 2017. Georgia’s 2017 SEC East title was its first since 2012, and the Bulldogs won their first SEC Championship Game since 2012.
Tebow’s major reason for picking Alabama and Georgia? Their quarterbacks.
“I think the two best teams in the SEC will be Alabama and Georgia. Kind of because of that, I think Jake Fromm and Tua are probably your two leading candidates [for SEC Offensive Player of the Year], because they’re also on the best teams. It doesn’t mean they’re the best players, but they’re good quarterbacks on the best teams. That usually affects things a little bit.”
Tebow also offered his opinions on potential breakout players, programs and more.
