Alabama vs. Florida State

Since that's the situation for Florida State, you know this is also true: Should the Crimson Tide do the improbable by losing Saturday night, they'll shrug, and then they'll recall what they've done three times under Saban.

Number one: Surprise, surprise, the Alabama Crimson Tide will come in at number one and the reason (s) are simple: Saban, Saban, Saban.

Lamar Jackson returns to Louisville in pursuit of a second straight Heisman Trophy, and while I do not think he will achieve that goal, he should have another big season.

Nearly as bad as my LSU prediction. The SEC needs there to be a legitimate argument that there should be two conference teams in the College Football Playoff. "We want them to enjoy the history and know that this is something they can look back on and will be a special moment". But when you add a trip to Morgantown to play West Virginia, along with visits from Virginia Tech and South Florida to the mix that equals a rough opening month for a team that lost nine of its last 10 games in 2016. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for Fournette. In 2016, Ridley reeled in a team-high 72 balls for 769 yards and seven touchdowns.

Prediction: Louisville 41, Purdue 20; take Purdue +26. That was a 2015 game at Georgia, and the Tide crushed the Bulldogs that day. The committee releases the matchups for the inaugural playoff and for the other bowl games.

According to the Associated Press preseason poll, that is not an idle boast.

Hurts said FSU's defense reminds him a lot of Alabama's. Syracuse, Wake Forest, Boston College? He will be even better this year. Nearly every so-called college football expert has picked the Miami Hurricanes to win the ACC Coastal Division this year. Clemson has reigned over the ACC the past two seasons thanks to Deshaun Watson, but FSU is the -100 betting favourite to win it in 2017 behind 16 returning starters. But this year's game may carry a little bit of extra interest considering the impressive way the Rams smashed the Pac 12's Beavers last week.

Sindhu trumps Yufei to face Okuhara in the finals
Nozomi was outlasting Sindhu in the early matches but after Rio, Sindhu has two successive wins to her credit. Though I have beaten her (Okuhara) in the Olympics, it is a new match and there will be a new strategy.

"You can't be someone you're not, and yet I think some of the principles maybe are the same and yet the application has to be personalized to what each coach is all about". While they haven't yet recreated the magic of their historic victory at MI, they've turned into a very solid Group of Five program.

ESPN College Gameday's Kirk Herbstreit pegs Ohio State topping a Playoff including Alabama, Florida State and Southern Cal. Desmond Howard has Miami as the ACC Champion and Stanford winning it all. This matchup gets the nod simply because of how much each team returns.

Then there was November 13, 1993, and No. 1 Florida State traveled to No. 2 Notre Dame for another Game of the Century won by the Irish after they survived dramatics by the Seminoles at the end. "If you drop the ball you can give the other team momentum that we don't need". "Right now, they're just offers".

Harrison enters his junior season and this game against Florida State as a preseason first-team All-SEC selection and widely recognized as one of the top defensive backs in the country.

Oklahoma fullback Dimitri Flowers (36) scores in front of Oklahoma State defensive end Trace Clark and Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, left. It might be an unranked matchup, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a game that has more importance for both teams. Based on last year's pick of LSU, if you're a fan of the team I pick, you better be prepared for the wheels to fall off.

"It's in the rearview", Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts said of that stinging, last-play defeat, "but the thing about a rearview mirror is you can see it". The Crimson Tide and Seminoles are in his top five. Florida State handles Duke easily and struggles in a revenge win against Louisville and reigning Heisman Trophy victor, Lamar Jackson. In the Sugar Bowl, Ohio State University defeats University of Alabama 42-35, advancing to the first College Football Final against the Oregon Ducks in Arlington, Texas.
