The 2019 college football season is only two days away and predictions for the upcoming season are pouring in. A new prediction from one analyst is sure to get the Utah and Iowa fans excited.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, ESPN and SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic gave his picks for the College Football Playoff and all the major conference winners.

In the SEC, Cubelic had Georgia finally breaking through and beating rival Alabama.

Coming out of the Big 12 is Oklahoma over Baylor. In the Pac-12, he has Utah beating out Oregon.

Clemson also retains its ACC dominance, beating out Virginia to win it.

But in a selection that may surprise many, he chose Iowa not just to win the Big Ten West, but the entire Big Ten Conference.

Unfortunately for Iowa, winning the Big Ten doesn't prove enough to Cubelic to get into the College Football Playoff. That honor goes to Utah in a pick many people consider far more controversial.

As for the winner of the whole thing, he has Georgia upsetting Clemson to win the title.

We'll get our first taste of 2019 college football this weekend as Florida takes on Miami, and Arizona travels to Hawaii in "Week Zero."
