FOX Sports crew makes CFB Playoff predictions
With less than a week left until the start of Week 1, the college football experts with FOX Sports have made their final College Football Playoff predictions.
The FOX Sports college football crew, which consists of Bruce Feldman, Joel Klatt, Robert Smith, Matt Leinart, and Dave Wannstedt, made their CFP picks over the weekend. There’s some good news and some bad news as it relates to the B1G.
The good news? All five of the analysts have a B1G team picked to earn a spot in the four-team field. The bad news? Nobody has a B1G team winning the national title.
Of the five experts, three picked Wisconsin to reach the CFP and two picked Ohio State. The full predictions are listed below.

The B1G missed the CFP a season ago, as Ohio State’s two losses were too much to overcome in the eyes of the selection committee, despite winning a B1G title.
Most of the selections made by the crew were sensible, except one of Robert Smith’s picks. He selected Texas to be one of the four teams competing for a national title this season.
The Longhorns are coming off a 7-6 season in 2017.
Below is the video of the experts making their CFP predictions less than a week before Week 1.
