The picks!

NCAA Football: Heisman Trophy Presentation Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The playoff is finally here. We start at 3:00 tomorrow, then the second game is scheduled for 7:00. Both air on ESPN.

Clemson (-12.5) v. Notre Dame- These teams played fairly weak schedules. They’re legitimate top ten teams, but some wonder how good either team is.

Trevor Lawrence is excellent, and even with Clemson’s suspensions, they still have a talent advantage. I’ll take Clemson 28-14.

Oklahoma (+14) v. Alabama- I think Alabama wins because Oklahoma’s defense is going to have a nearly impossible time stopping the Tide’s offense.

But Alabama’s not going to have an easy day with Kyler Murray—the correct choice for the Heisman Trophy. I would not be shocked by any result in this game. I’ll take Alabama 42-38.
