Tuberville: CFB national title up for grabs – ‘I don’t think there’s a dominant team this year’

On a call with Alabama reporters on Wednesday, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville got a break from questions about the latest on Capitol Hill to talk about something else he knows a lot about: College football.

Coach gave his take on some of the country’s more successful teams and why he thinks that this year’s national championship could be different from years past.

“I think we’ve got a lot of good well rounded teams,” Tuberville said. “Ole Miss is moving up. I watched them play last week. They’re much improved. I saw them play against Auburn.”

The Senator managed to catch some PAC 12 action as well. “Washington squeaked it out against USC,” he said.

When it comes to the question of who could win the national title this year, Tuberville thinks that there isn’t a team that has shown themselves to be ahead of the rest.

“I think Georgia and Alabama are probably much improved than they were at the beginning of the year,” he said.

“I don’t think there’s a dominant team this year when it comes to the National Championship. I think that’s going to be what makes the playoffs fun.”

Tuberville’s name remains synonymous with success in the SEC, particularly due to his famous “six in a row” streak of wins over Alabama in the Iron Bowl from 2002 to 2007.

The Senator believes that in the coming weeks the world of college football could become increasingly unpredictable.

“We’ll have to see what happens in the next couple of weeks. I think you’re going to have some losses of top 10 teams.”
