ESPN's Paul Finebaum Reveals His National Title Prediction

The 2018 college football season is now less than two weeks away and predictions are rolling in.

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum did his weekly appearance on WJOX 94.5 FM this morning and unveiled his College Football Playoff and national title picks.

They are not surprising.

Finebaum has two SEC teams making the final foursome and one of those teams winning it all.

Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State," Finebaum said. "I have Alabama winning it all."

Three of those four teams made the playoff last year, while Ohio State is predicted to take Oklahoma's spot.

The Crimson Tide enter the season as the preseason No. 1. The Tigers, Bulldogs and Buckeyes are all preseason top 10 teams, too.

Finebaum is not going with any dark horses this year, but that's probably wise. The College Football Playoff has in recent years been filled with teams that basically everyone expected to make it.

More predictions are coming later today. The preseason AP Top 25 is set to be released this afternoon.
