College Football Playoffs

College Football Playoffs are Saturday and both games are on ESPN.

First up, Peach Bowl in Atlanta. #4 Oklahoma v. #1 LSU – LSU has some injuries at key positions and a Heisman winner. Oklahoma has Jalen Hurts, who knows LSU. Interesting matchup. Kickoff at 3:00 CST on ESPN. Y’all Pick: Upset alert- Oklahoma.

Next, #2 Ohio State v. #3 Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona. Kickoff 7:00 p.m. CST on ESPN. Clemson is hard for me to figure out. I wanna believe, but, something is holding me back. When I saw OSU play Wisconsin Week 1 and dismantle them, I thought they were the best team I watched in Week 1. I still think they are the most complete team. And for this writer, that’s hard to write, ’cause I can’t stand them. Y’all Pick – OSU
