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!!!
