The NCAA Football playoffs are finally here, and the first game in the mix is The Alabama Crimson Tide versus the Washington Huskies. With the Crimson Tide finishing one of their most dominant seasons of all time, it was no doubt they were going to end up as a number one seed for this playoff series. The Huskies were in and out of the playoff picture for several weeks, but over the last few games, made a strong run beating both WSU in decisive fashion as well as winning the Pac-12 Championship Game with little difficulty as well.

These sites cause a lot of viruses, which can be a pain to clean up.
