CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) — Roll Tide! The University of Alabama was crowned the football champs this week, but was it because of a lucky ball?
Nick the Dolphin selected Alabama to be the next NCAA national football champion over Georgia prior to Monday’s game.
Turns out, Nick was right! Alabam defeated Georgia 26-23 during the big game.
This makes Nick 6 for 7 in his sports predictions and 3 for 3 in his football predictions.
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is now auctioning off the “lucky ball” credited with Alabama’s comeback win.
As of Wednesday morning, the going price was $76.
All proceeds will go to support the aquarium’s mission to preserve our environment while inspiring the human spirit through leadership in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of marine life.
