Georgia, TCU an unlikely pair for what should be intriguing College Football Playoff title game

The Bulldogs will chase a second national championship in a row as prohibitive favorites against the Horned Frogs,

 after both teams narrowly escaped the College Football Playoff semifinals.

That's nothing new to TCU, which was motivated by Michigan's obvious confidence heading into the Fiesta Bowl.

the Wolverines were outgained on the ground and rocked by the Horned Frogs' aggressiveness, resulting in an unexpected defensive collapse.

Whether TCU can do the same to Georgia will be the game's deciding factor.

And while the challenge is daunting, that Ohio State was able to force the Bulldogs into an up-and-down shootout in the Peach Bowl,

 suggests the defending national champions could struggle putting the clamps on one of the top offenses in the Bowl Subdivision.

The Frogs rank third nationally in scoring (41.1 points per game), 11th in yards per play (6.9),

 eighth in quarterback efficiency (160.5) and seventh in rushing touchdowns (36).
