It would be fun -- a lot of fun -- to watch Ohio State make it to the title game, and then lose by 35 to Alabama.
Ohio State is not Notre Dame, the later being a team that had no business playing for the National Title last season.

Apart from a trip to College Station and a home game against LSU, Bama has a cakewalk to the SEC title game. They only play 4 true road games this season.

Hmmm i have to go with Oregon playing in the title, Why? I think what alot of people overlook is how very young Oregon was last year, most of there key starters where 1 or 2nd year, So how good they were last year add another year of experience. With this group of talent look to Oregon either this year or two to take the title.

I personally would love to see Oregon and Alabama/Texas Am or even Ohio St or Boise St.

After Nebraska's defense's performance last night... My wife took back her wish for the Huskers to play Alabama. Yes they held Wyoming to 34. But they gave up 602 yrds of offense...

I went back through this thread to see who everyone picked preseason...

NOT one of us picked FSU... Much less Auburn. We have to do better next year... Especially us CFB forum regulars. Lol...

I was surprised at how many Stanford picks there were. Outside of that it was mostly Bama, Oregon, Ohio State, and Georgia.

If we couldn't have Florida state and Bama ;Auburn will do fine .Didn't take a miracle play to get there either.No body picked FSU because they did not do that well last season;while the others have done so.FSU hasn't had great team in some years; so what do you expect .Look at the last seven national championship and where they came from.

Even if they lose to A&M (I doubt it), that's way early and they can make their way back to #1. Stanford is the sole beneficiary of Chip Kelly leaving Oregon (and the fact that Stanford/Oregon game is on the farm I believe).
If not for miracle 2.0 at Jordan Hare Alabama would be there. if Stanford doesn't drop that Utah game, they'd be in discussion as one of those 1 loss teams. Hell, even with the Utah loss, if they beat USC, they'd be in discussion. Wasn't a bad pick.

FSU has this rookie red-shirted QB nobody knew about.
