Expert Picks, Predictions: College Football National Champion Will Be ...


The College Football Playoff national champion will be …

Jeff Feyerer @JeffFeyererCFN

Alabama Crimson Tide

I think we are in for an otherworldly Alabama season. After being embarrassed on the national stage in the title game last year, I have a feeling Saban and the boys will be out for blood this season.

With the most talented QB and WR corps Bama has had under Saban, along with a defense full again with talent, we could see a performance for the ages in Tuscaloosa.

Clemson is going to do its little song and dance over lesser ACC foes, but the Tide will be more than ready.

Of course Alabama is going to win the national championship. Do you really think the program is going to be anything less than amazing after that?
There might be a misfire along the way, and it almost has to happen that way.  There needs to be some sort of stress and strain along the way – the Tide don’t seem to handle the No. 1 seed all that well; no one does – but all the one loss will do is refocus the efforts for the best team in college football.
The real curveball will be the opponent – Oklahoma.
No. 3 Alabama beats No. 2 Clemson, No. 1 Oklahoma beats No. 4 Michigan, Bama beats Jalen Hurts and the Sooners.
Watch the 2019 college football season anyway.

Phil Harrison @PhilHarrisonBW,

Alabama exacts revenge and beats Clemson. Sometime in the next decade we’ll see two other teams get a piece of the pie, but not this year.

Isaiah Hole @IsaiahHole,

Clemson will repeat, given that Trevor Lawrence returns under center and might overall have more talent top-to-bottom than any other team. But most important is the quarterback position for the Tigers.

Will Hunter @wil__hunter,

(heavy sigh) Alabama over Clemson. Unless there are major injuries suffered, I’m not picking against the two best programs in the country. Alabama gets revenge from last year’s embarrassing loss.

Johnny Rosenstein @JohnnyParlay11,

Clemson … again. The ACC schedule doesn’t offer much of a challenge so the Tigers should cruise into the CFP final four where QB Trevor Lawrence and RB Travis Etienne will put on another show.

Roll Damn Tide

Scott Steehn @Steehnroller,

Clemson – Very good defense and too much offensive firepower. The Tigers haven’t lost a game since Oct. 13, 2017.

Keith Stewart

Alabama has Tua Tagovailoa and a a chip on its shoulder. Clemson’s lack of experience on the D-line will be itsr downfall.

Joe Vitale @JoeVitale,

Georgia will beat Clemson in the national championship. Dawgs on top.

Chris Wassel @ChrisWasselDFS,

Alabama gets its revenge against Clemson this time in a highly-contested game. Expect this to be much closer than the blowout in January.

Clucko The Chicken (a Power Five team randomly picked out of a hat from the four – Vanderbilt, Oregon, Purdue, Baylor – that was picked to make the CFP)
