College football returns in less than two months, and Athlon Sports is preparing for kickoff with their college football bowl projections for 2016.

Here are their picks for the playoff:
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl: Alabama vs. Clemson; Alabama wins
Fiesta Bowl: Florida State vs. Ohio State; Florida State wins
CFB National Championship: Alabama vs. Florida State
You can check out the full bowl and playoff game predictions at Athlon Sports.
The top four teams aren’t entirely surprising: Clemson and Alabama, last year’s champion, are among the favorites to win while neither Florida State nor Ohio State made it to the semifinals. Michigan, Oklahoma, Tennessee, LSU and Notre Dame will trail behind the top four in Athlon Sports’ projections.
