Power 5 Conference Predictions
ACC- Georgia Tech over Clemson Georgia Tech finishes regular season 11-1 and gets revenge on Clemson in the ACCCG. Justin Thomas puts up Heisman numbers throughout the season.
SEC - Alabama over Georgia Alabama continues its dominance over the SEC and easily wins over Georgia, who wins an easy division.
PAC 12 Oregon over UCLA Oregon transfer QB Vernon Adams will excel in Oregon's offense and lead them to a two-loss season but upset UCLA in the championship. No two-loss team will make the playoffs but Oregon will be in a big time bowl game.
BIG 12- TCU Boykin will be a Heisman finalist and lead TCU to an undefeated regular season and clinching a spot in the playoffs.
BIG 10- Ohio State over Nebraska Easiest pick to make this year. Ohio State will go undefeated in the regular season. Their talent level is to high for them not to. They will have 2 Heisman finalists in Ezekiel Elliot and JT Barrett.
Evan MorrisonACC: Virginia Tech (10-2) over Clemson (10-2), Surprise team is Pitt who contends for Coastal title B1G: Michigan State (11-1) over Wisconsin (9-3), Surprise team is Minnesota giving Wisconsin a run for their money in the West. Big 12: TCU (12-0) beats Baylor (11-1) late in the season, Surprise team is Oklahoma winning 10 games. Pac-12: UCLA (10-2) over Cal (9-3), Surprise team is Cal coming out on top in a messy North division. SEC: LSU (10-2) over Tennessee (9-3), Surprise team is Vandy winning 6 games to go bowling.
Tim ThomasACC: Clemson over Virginia Tech: The Hokies will be ready to make their return to the ACC Championship this year, but Deshaun Watson is the best quarterback Clemson has had in a long time if not ever. Big 10: Ohio State over Wisconsin: The Buckeyes are ready for another great season, and another trip to the Big 10 Championship against a familiar foe. Wisconsin should win the West, but don't be surprised if Minnesota beats out the Badgers. Big 12: TCU: Trevone Boykin turned the corner last year and became a star at quarterback. Gary Patterson will have his defense ready to go and the Horned Frogs will extract some revenge on Baylor this season. Pac-12: USC over Oregon: Questions remain with Steve Sarkisian, but the Trojans have a talented team that will find a way as a two-loss team to win the Pac-12 South and then dethrone the Ducks. SEC: Auburn over Tennessee: The Volunteers will make their return to prominence with a great season in the SEC East, but Jeremy Johnson is the real deal, and Auburn will be ready to win another SEC Championship.
Bama vs TCU. If this matchup happens it will be one of the most anticipated games, TCU has one of the most explosive offenses while Alabama has had an Elite defense. I give the slight advantage to Alabama solely based on Nick Saban and his coaching staff.
OSU vs GT. While this could be the best Georgia Tech team in its history, Ohio State will be too much for Paul Johnsons team to handle. Justin Thomas will play well but Elliot and Barrett will tear up GT's defense and win in a blowout.
Ohio State vs Alabama. Ohio State wins in a shoot out 38-35 and the Buckeyes win the 2nd National Championship in a row.
