There you have it my college bowl picks are up, and the playoff games will be at a later date. Plus the National Championship game will be featured sometime in January. Its been a great year in college football, now its time for bowl season once and for all!!

My 2015 College Football Playoff Preview & Picks

My 2015 College Football Playoff Preview & Picks

Well its the 2nd National playoff in its history, and there is only 1 returning team (Alabama) to the party. The 3 others struggled to make it back, im speaking of Oregon, Florida State, and defending champ Ohio State. So there will be a new champion this time around. This college football season was one of the best in a long time. A lot of upsets that nobody would have predicted. Outcomes and the endings of games that was wild, I mean you could not ask for a better season than this one. The 2015 season will be one for the books, and for the annals of history. Well lets get on for the playoff preview already!!!

Orange Bowl (Miami, FL)
Clemson vs. Oklahoma

I was shocked that Oklahoma got in after all that talk about the Big 12 (which don’t have a championship title game still) I felt that Stanford (Pac 12 Champion) should have got in, however the committee got it wrong in spite of Stanford losing twice as suppose to Oklahoma only losing once (to a 4-8 Texas team). At least Clemson was impressive all season long in the Atlantic Coast Conference. I do not have Clemson playing in the championship game, I believe Oklahoma has the fire power to overcome Shaun Watson and that attacking offense of Clemson. Plus the Sooners defense has played very all season in the Big 12, as they were the only defense to shut down opponents week after week. My Pick is: Oklahoma winning over Clemson in this contest.

Cotton Bowl (Dallas, TX)
Alabama vs. Michigan State

Now for the matchup we have all been waiting for, how about them Crimson Tide rolling through opponents all year long in the tough SEC conference. The impressive trio of QB Jacob Coker and RB Derrick Henry (Heisman winner). I think Alabama will have no problem with the Spartans. Its almost if they can do no wrong when it comes to playing there game. As for Michigan State, I did not see anyone in the media giving them a chance in this game. Don’t get me wrong, they have had a great season in there own right in the Big Ten (what a conference) They pulled a great upset vs. Michigan in there house, if not for a bad snap on a pending punt at the end of the game. Also they beat Ohio State at a critical time, when it look like nobody was going to even stop them from getting a 2nd straight national championship. My pick Alabama blows out Michigan State

There is my playoff picks, and sometime next week my National Championship Preview is coming out stay Tuned!!!

My National Championship Preview and Pick

My National Championship Preview and Pick

well its Ohio State vs. Oregon, and its been a great season for both. Only one can be a winner, and this is now a true national Championship game. Ohio State is being led by a 3rd string QB Cardale Jones (only playing in his 4th game) after J.T. Barrett got hurt in the season finale vs. Michigan. They went on to destroy Wisconsin in the BigTen Title game. Overall there season is great, however they will say the big ten is down mostly due to lack of elite teams in the conference. Coach Urban Meyer has done a great job rallying the troops after Braxton Miller got hurt days before the season opener. I say good luck to Ohio State because they will need it. I am picking Oregon to win it, especially after letting the 2010 title game vs Auburn get away at the end. There offense is one of the best in college football, scoring wise that is. Look what they did to Florida State in the Rose Bowl, reducing there offense to a pedestrian. Jameis Winston had no answer for the Oregon Ducks, as there defense swarmed the Seminoles. Also shutting down there playmakers and Ohio state will need to bring there ‘A’ game in order to make this a close game. I pick oregon to win it, and they better get it done.


Now the offseason begins after this monday night!!

College Football Picks

College Football Picks

its been a very interesting and impactful year in college football. The Bowl season has been entertaining at least for me here. Now finally comes the playoffs in college football involving 4 teams. People say there should have been at least 6, maybe even 8 teams. I would like to see them expand it, however that will be a long ways from happening. Like around 2026 for even consideration for it. Here is my picks:

Rose Bowl:

Oregon (#2) over Florida State (#3)

Sugar Bowl:

Alabama (#1) over Ohio State (#4)


There it is your college football picks for this season. Look for my NFL Playoff picks coming later this week. Happy New Year 2 u!!
