CFN Bowl Predictions

Their National Championship prediction might pique your interest..........

quote:

Discover BCS National Championship
January 7th, 8:30pm, ESPN
Miami Gardens, FL Sun Life Stadium
BCS No. 1 vs. BCS No. 2
Preseason Call: LSU vs. Oregon
Top Three Other Options: 1) Alabama, 2) Oklahoma, 3) USC
WHY? For those of you who really wanted a rematch of the 2011 season opener, you might have your wish.

Oklahoma will be in the hunt for the national title, as will Florida State and the Big Ten champion. However, the real fight might be over whether or not a second SEC team deserves to be in - again. After last year’s outcry, there might not be much of a desire to make it another all-SEC finale. Oregon might make the question moot if the offense is revved up like normal and if there aren't any major gaffes until the showdown at USC. It will take a mega-upset to slow down the Ducks with winnable game after winnable game until the road trip to USC on November 3rd. No matter what happens it might all come down to a Oregon-USC rematch in the Pac-12 title game with the winner going on to play for the whole ball of wax.

LSU is the easier part of the equation. The Tigers are loaded again and have a much, much easier schedule to handle this season with no Oregon or road trip to West Virginia to deal with in non-conference play. North Texas, Washington, Idaho and Towson will make for a nice and breezy four wins, while there are only four true road dates to deal with. Alabama has to come to Baton Rouge, and while away games at Auburn, Florida, Texas A&M and Arkansas will all be challenging, LSU is stronger than all four.

Oregon is starting a freshman QB, not going to happen. Also lose their best RB.

OU has the easiest path IMO. They will be favorites in every one of their games and really only play 3 tough games all year. Texas, West Virginia, and TCU.

I dont think they have the best team but id be suprised if the dont go 12-0

May not, but Oregon has a really good guy to step in at rb, and they can plug in at qb to run that offense...it will come down to usc/oregon...as noted...to see who might play the SEC.

re: CFN Bowl Predictions
Oklahoma is a perennial disappointment in college football, as is Florida State. Oregon has a freshman QB, so count them out. I highly doubt USC runs the table. I see them getting AT LEAST one loss. All that being said, other than LSU, I don't have the slightest clue as to who will be in Miami in January.

ETA:. In fact, I am not backing down my earlier prediction many threads ago. I say USC gets 2 losses this season.

A freshman QB typically doesn't lead a team to a national title game appearance, just saying.

While it does appear possible that Marcus Mariota could be the starter, I think it is more likely that Bryan Bennett will win the job. They did lose James, but Barner and DAT are more than adequate at that spot.

After spring, Mariota > Bennett in terms of what I've heard from them. Looks like they could go the freshman route, which means growing pains like any team.

Why don't we just beat Bama in the regular season again and then have another rematch in the title game!

Me neither.

I see Oregon beating USC in the regular season, then USC beating Oregon in the Pac 12 Championship. That should vault them into the NCG spot
