The college football season is finally upon us, and as we gear up to watch teams across the nation begin their season this weekend, I have put together my picks for how each conference will turn out and who will make the college football playoff.

All of us at Jox 94.5 put out our picks, and you can catch them all here.

For me, I think it all goes through Alabama, who I see winning Saturday against Florida State (my week 1 picks can be seen here), and not dropping more than one game all season. I actually like the Pac-12 to miss the playoff this season, barring something crazy happening.

Here are my picks for the 2017 season:

SEC Championship – Alabama over Georgia
ACC Championship – Florida State over Miami
Big Ten Championship – Penn State over Wisconsin
Big 12 Championship – Oklahoma State over Oklahoma
Pac-12 Championship – USC over Washington
