Alabama Football: Bold predictions for All Hallows Eve through the end of the 2020 college football season.

Halfway through the 2020 Alabama football season, I’ve seen enough. Not that I don’t want to see more, but that more is not needed, to see in advance what will happen from Halloween Night through the playoffs.

These visions break down the eight remaining games. Yes, I am already giving away one bold prediction! The Alabama Crimson Tide will not only return to the CFB Playoffs, it will be in the National Championship game.

Let’s now backtrack and work through this with some semblance of order. The outcome of each game will be predicted, as will the four participants in the CFB Playoff. One disclaimer that should be allowable – if the Playoff Selection Committee follows our previously published advice, my prediction stands. If they opt for some expanding the Playoff field nonsense, I don’t know what to expect or predict.

In addition, team records and player records will be predicted. Not all of them, of course, but a goodly number and enough to satisfy most stats geeks and Alabama football, historians. I confess to sharing a geekiness about stats, rather than being an actual statistician. I am, however, a proud, if self-anointed Alabama football historian. One of the few advantages of age is having followed Alabama football for more decades than pride wants to admit.

Anyway, let’s get to the predictions and we will start with Halloween Night.
