CBS College Football Expert Picks Surprise Team To Win SEC

Will a team other than Alabama win the SEC?

The college football season kicks off in just a few days.

With that in mind, college football experts from around the country are making their predictions for the upcoming season.

CBS' Barrett Sallee predicted a surprise for the SEC. Alabama is the favorite headed into the season, but Sallee doesn't think the Tide will win the conference.

Sallee predicts Georgia will win the SEC, and make the College Football Playoff.

A one-loss Georgia team will top a one-loss Auburn team in the SEC Championship Game and make the College Football Playoff.

It's a bold pick, but not totally outside the realm of possibility. We'll have to wait and see what the season holds.
