2016 College Football Season Preview Conference Winners with Reasons Are Several

2016 College Football Preview

Before the 2016 College Football Season kicks off, I joined Matt on Reasons Are Several to talk about rivalries, traditions, and to make predictions and picks for the upcoming season.

We predicted conference champions for each of the major conferences in the FBS, as well as our semi-final and final matchups, plus our prediction for the National Champion and Heisman trophies.
