Urban Meyer, FOX 'Big Noon Kickoff' crew make national championship predictions
FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff crew believes that Ohio State will undoubtedly reach the College Football Playoff again this year, now that the B1G is reinstating a fall schedule in 2020. Whether or not the Buckeyes win it all is still where there’s some disagreement.
Saturday, analysts from Big Noon Kickoff made their predictions for the 2020 College Football Playoff. All four analysts — Urban Meyer, Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and Brady Quinn — selected Ohio State to be one of the four teams in the field this year. Clemson was also a unanimous selection among the crew.
When it came to crowning a champion, though, there was some disagreement.
Meyer and Bush both believe the Buckeyes are taking home the title at the end of the season. Leinart and Quinn are going with the Tigers.
Last year, Ohio State and Clemson met in the Fiesta Bowl in the semifinal round of the College Football Playoff. Despite an early 16-0 lead by the Buckeyes, the Tigers stormed back and won the game 29-23.
Three other teams were selected as College Football Playoff contenders among the four analysts — Alabama, Florida and Oklahoma. Below is each analyst’s prediction:
