College Football Odds For 2020
The NCAA football predictions for the 2020 season are out and the favorites for the title game are a pretty predictable list of teams that everyone has been waiting to see in action. However, there are some intriguing team names on that list that may surprise the rest of us and give us a whole new level of excitement for this year’s play.
One of the most anticipated games of the year between Florida State and Oklahoma in Tallahassee will feature one of the top two teams in college football. Of course, it is no secret that Oklahoma has the most talented team and has been the favorite to win the national title since last year. Florida State, on the other hand, is a very talented team with a number of young, athletic stars that could bring their team to the promised land if they can stay healthy. The Seminoles are led by Heisman Trophy candidate Jameis Winston, a true dual threat who can run the ball or throw it.
LSU has always been a strong contender for an upset at the national championship game. The Tigers are coming off a disappointing loss to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game. LSU will be looking to prove that it does not matter what anyone says about its chances of winning the national championship. LSU is one of the favorites for the SEC title, but the Tigers need to start winning games to keep the national title hopes alive. LSU will probably have to go through Oklahoma in order to reach the national title game.
Oklahoma is a team on the rise and could become a powerhouse within a few years. The Sooners have the best player in the country in quarterback Landry Jones. Jones was one of the most well respected players at Oklahoma when he transferred from Mississippi. Now Jones will get an opportunity to take his talents to the NFL and prove that he is more than just a passer. Oklahoma’s defense has always been one of the best in the country, but the unit has lost some of its luster with the recent suspension of star linebacker Travis Dickson.
The other great team name on this list is Arizona, who won’t get the hype of many other teams mentioned in this article. Arizona hasn’t been able to win the big games in recent seasons, but it is still a dangerous team with talented running back Andre Ellington and receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who is expected to win the Biletnikoff Award as the best receiver in the country. The Cardinals have the potential to become a top five team in the Pac 12 this year, which will help them to make a deep run into the NCAA tournament.
The final team name on this list that should get the hype is Auburn, the favorite to win the National Championship game between Florida State and Oklahoma. Auburn is a solid team with one of the best defensive players in college football in end Dee Ford and explosive running back Tre Mason. Auburn is also one of the favorites to win the SEC, which would put it in the top four of the conference and give it a big edge over the Seminoles.
