PFF: Georgia Could Make 'Surprise' National Title Run In 2017

One college football expert is a believer in Georgia this season.

Pro Football Focus believes Georgia has what it takes to make a surprise run at the College Football Playoff this upcoming season.

The Bulldogs went 8-5 in 2016, but finished the season strong with a bowl win over TCU and return some promising young talent, especially on offense.

PFF lists three reasons why Georgia could make a "surprise" national title run:

  • The Bulldogs have perhaps the best backfield in the country with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel
  • Expected improvement from sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason, who played as a true freshman
  • The SEC East will expectedly be weak

Georgia currently has 20/1 national championship odds on Bovada. The Bulldogs might not be a bad bet.
