I’m sorry, but I couldn’t disagree more with the ESPN projections this time around when it comes to the playoff and title game.

I see no situation unfolding where the projected title game shouldn’t be Ohio State vs. Clemson. There’s no situation at all where I think Alabama should be in over the Buckeyes.

I respect Alabama, but let’s be real about this. Ohio State is going to be favored in every single game outside of the playoff this season.

Even in a head-to-head matchup against the Tigers of Clemson, they still might be favored. Why would anyone think they won’t be in the title game?

The smart play is OSU vs. Clemson, and it shouldn’t even be up for debate.

As for Wisconsin, Kyle Bonagura of ESPN has them in the Peach Bowl against UCF. The Knights better hope like hell that’s not the matchup that happens.

If it does, we’ll boat race them off of the field. You best believe that.

Let us know in the comments who you think will make the title game!
