The two top-five teams have sky-high aspirations for the 2021 season. But just one will emerge victorious by Saturday night. To get a preview of the marquee showdown, ESPN’s College GameDay will provide analysis and predictions on Saturday morning.
Per usual, College GameDay is bringing in a special guest to make game predictions at the end of the show. This week, NASCAR’s Chase Elliott will be that special guest.

Elliott is a die-hard Georgia fan, so it’s safe to say we know which team he’ll be picking to win Saturday night’s Georgia-Clemson game.

The winner of Georgia-Clemson may skyrocket up to claim the No. 1 ranking in college football by early next week. The winner deserves such recognition.
Clemson really has nothing to prove in this game. The Tigers could lose and go onto run the table in the ACC and sneak into the College Football Playoff. Georgia, on the other hand, is facing immense pressure.
The Bulldogs are always in the playoff conversation. But they struggle to meet expectations on a yearly basis. Could this be the season they finally get over the hump and bring a championship to Athens for the first time since 1980? We may find out on Saturday night.
Georgia-Clemson gets going at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC this Saturday night. College GameDay, meanwhile, begins at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN.
