I predicted the outcome of the first round of the first-ever college football playoffs, with Oregon & Ohio State advancing to the championship game on January 12th! Having watched both teams and their uptempo offenses, dominating defenses, and world class quarterbacks, albeit the 3rd string QB for Ohio State who could start on any college team in the country, and just may be the guy at Ohio State next year with the way he’s played in the 2 biggest games for the Buckeyes this year, the Big Ten championship, and leading Ohio State to in their upset of #1 seed Alabama.
You could see the confidence both teams brought to their playoff games, they knew they were going to win, and seeing that is why I picked them both for what I was calling ultimately would see them in the championship game, or as I termed it before they even got there, The “Oh”-“Oh” Bowl for Oregon & Ohio State! This past Thursday, 28.2 million viewers watched Oregon crush Florida State 59 to 20 in the Rose Bowl. Then 28.3 million tuned in as Ohio State put 28 straight point on the board, coming from 2 TD’s down to win 42 to 35 in the Sugar Bowl. So now, who will win the Championship game? It’s a tossup, but I believe it will be high-scoring, and may go 2 or 3 overtimes before it’s settled, with a slight edge to Oregon, but watch out for Ohio State who with their 3rd string QB improving every game, may just be at their very best and take it all. This game will be one of the best ever!
