College football season finally returned this past Saturday, and this weekend, we get our first full slate of games. It's about that time to go ahead and make some official predictions for the season to come.

Our staff is picking division winners, conference winners, College Football Playoff participants and a national champion. There's a lot of chalk, but there are also a few surprises in the mix.

Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Washington are probably the four favorites.
