The final game of the 2023-24 college football season is here as the CFP Championship Game is set to take place on Monday night. The Washington Huskies will take on the Michigan Wolverines in a battle of the two remaining undefeated teams.
Washington won the Pac-12 Conference this season, and they have been massively underrated all season long. The Huskies got past the Texas Longhorns in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in order to get to the final game of the season.
Michigan has been one of the top teams in the country all season long, and the Wolverines have lived up to the hype all season long. The Wolverines were able to pick up an overtime win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Rose Bowl Game.
The Michigan Wolverines are 5.5-point favorites over the Washington Huskies in the CFP Championship Game on Monday night.
Huskies Looking to Throw
Washington quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has had a massive season as he has thrown for over 4,600 yards and 35 touchdowns this season. Penix is one of the best players in the country, and he always seems to shine in the biggest games.
Washington might want to throw the football to win this game, but they have also proven that they can run the football to win games. The Huskies are one of the best offensive teams in the country, but they will also need to get stops in this game.
The Huskies have allowed 31 points in back-to-back games, and it’s going to take a better performance to win this game. Washington has always made clutch plays this season, but they now have to prove it one final time.
Wolverines Just Make Winning Plays
Most college football teams tend to focus on offense to win games, but the Michigan Wolverines are a team that plays the game a bit differently. Michigan has been one of the best defensive teams in the country all season long, and that unit will have to show up in this game.
The Wolverines had five sacks in the first half in the Rose Bowl Game, and they will be coming after Michael Penix Jr. Michigan has also been a great offensive team this season, and they can rack up the yards in many different ways.
Running back Blake Corum has 25 touchdowns this season, and he is going to have his hands on the ball a ton in this game. Quarterback J.J. McCarthy has been incredibly accurate all season long, and he will take some shots in this game.
Wolverines Win Tight Battle
The Washington Huskies have the ability to put points on the board in a hurry, and that offense will need to show up in a big way in this game. Washington will find a way to hit on enough plays to keep it close, but that’s about all to expect.
Michigan has just been so dominant on both sides of the ball this season, and at some point they are going to take control in this matchup. The Wolverines will try to get an early lead in this game, and then allow the defense and running game to shut the door.
Taking the 5.5 points is the best course of action in this matchup as it is going to be a close game, but the Michigan Wolverines are going to win the national championship.
