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.

The episode is all the college football you can handle and maybe more. In an effort to maintain complete transparency and because it’s easier to look at a post than relisten to an episode, below are our picks. We can’t back out of them now. And if you didn’t listen to the episode, you may get some explanation as to why we picked who we picked should you choose to press play.
