Could Tennessee win the national title in 2016? One college football analyst believes so.
The Tennessee Volunteers are a popular pick to win the SEC East and represent the division in the league’s title game this coming fall, but one college football analyst is taking it a step further. CBS Sports’ Brian Jones is picking the Vols to win the national title over Florida State.
Jones has Tennessee, Florida, Michigan and Stanford in his College Football Playoff. Obviously, he has the Seminoles and the Vols advancing to play for it all.
Butch Jones has certainly done a nice job rebuilding Tennessee, but many are hesitant to mention the Vols as a national title favorite until they prove they can beat rival Alabama. If that happens this year, expect everyone to jump aboard the bandwagon.
