College Football Bowl Season and Playoff Predictions

As we enter a new era of college football, a even more grand column is written.  Previewing the “Bowl Season” games on top of the “at-large”, committee picked bowls, and the Playoff is a lot of predictions.  I highly doubt that even 80% of them will be right, but this is for fun.  The “Bowl Season” games still consist of a conference vs. conference format.  The “committee” picked bowl games are strictly at-large. The best teams who didn’t make the Playoff.  Then we have the new, updated, and fair playoff system.  The committee picks the top four teams in the nation, seeds them, and they play two semi-finals games.  The winners advance to a National Championship game.  This should provide more excitement and certainly more fairness among the teams.

Playoff Semi-Final Games
The Big 12 gets two teams. I don’t know what other teams are going to be good enough to get in to the Playoff. Baylor vs. Oregon was a incredibly hard decision. If this game actually happens, defense wouldn’t even be a word. This would be a shoot-out, with scores probably in 50’s. Florida State is a somewhat easy pick against Oklahoma. I thought Oklahoma was a little overrated this year, which is why I picked Baylor to win the Big 12. However, Oklahoma will better than Auburn or Alabama.

#1 Florida State vs. #4 Oklahoma

#2 Oregon vs. #3 Baylor

National Championship

#1 Florida State vs #2 Oregon

Not even going to try to decide…
