ATLANTA - The pick is in and, unsurprisingly, Atlanta Falcons’ Julio Jones chose his alma mater to win the big game.
The wide receiver, who played for Alabama from 2008 to 2010, told Channel 2 Action News that the Crimson Tide’s defense will help them bring home the National Championship trophy.

Jones said he cheered for Georgia in the Rose Bowl but, “I can’t cheer for them Monday. I can’t.”
Jones predicted a low scoring game -- with a final score of 24-17.
“Hopefully it will be a great game,” he said.
