I predict that in the final year of the BCS ERA, NO SEC Will be in the final game. Although Alabama will be there and a few other schools, I don’t see any one team running the table.
What I see is at least 4 teams from around the nation having a shot at going undefeated. If at least 2 of them run the table, The SEC will be locked out with one loss.
Here are my 4 teams:
Oregon: You have to put them in the hunt every year. Stanford will probably be their toughest game but I think they can do it.
Notre Dame: They ran the table this year and play about the same schedule with the Irish getting better.
Ohio State: The B1G is down which help the Buckeyes. Hard to repeat, but they have the coach and the motivation.
Clemson: Yep. My beloved Tigers. 2013 was supposed to be our year and with Tajh Boyd coming back it could be a special year. If we get by UGA, we will be in very good shape. We have to play 2 FCS schools this year because the ACC jerked the league around with the 9 team league schedule then dropping it back to 8 games. FSU won’t be as good this year and we have them in the valley. SCAR will be the game we have to figure out how to win.
That is my early candidates…...
