2019-2020 season best five games in the SEC
1.Florida vs. Georgia (Jacksonville,FL)
The annual game for the SEC East champioship (or so it seems like) for the next few years. Florida needs to win this game to get into the SEC Championship and Georgia should also want this game with a test across the division versus Texas A&M ahead.

2.LSU at. Alabama
Is this the first year that LSU beats Alabama since 2011? I don’t think so but don’t think that ESPN’s College Gameday won’t be there. LSU and Alabama may be the two favorites for this division but watch out for Texas A&M (despite having a tough schedule).

3.Georgia at. Texas A&M
Georgia heads to Aggie land for the first time since A&M was introduced into the SEC. If Texas A&M wins, Georgia’s playoff hopes may not be as strong as they were if the Dawgs were before unbeaten but an SEC Championship win over Alabama will keep Georgia in the CFP no matter what.

4.Alabama at. Texas A&M
As stated before, Texas A&M has a very tough schedule. But, a chance at home to beat a top-three ranked Alabama team may not be out of the picture for a vastly improving Texas A&M team.

5.Florida at. LSU
LSU and Florida are likely to finish second in their respective divisions so a win in the middle of the season will definitley improve either squad’s playoff resume and a chance at an SEC Championship berth.

2019-2020 season best five games in the Pac-12
1.Oregon at. Washington
These teams will likely fight it out for the Pac-12 north championship once again.

2.Utah at. Washington
Utah’s big chance to win and get a stranglehold on the Pac-12 south and a big win over a Pac-12 north power.

3.Washington at. Stanford
Stanford and Washington are right behind Oregon in the Pac-12’s pecking order, can one of them use this game to fuel a Pac-12 championship run?

4.Arizona State at. Utah
This could be an unoffical Pac-12 championship game. Winner goes to Los Angeles.

5.Washington State at. Washington
Washington State may not do as well as they did last year but Wazzu could spoil Washington’s chance at a Pac-12 championship let alone a college football playoff appearance.

2019 cbhsports College Gameday Predictions

Week 0-Miami vs. Florida (Orlando,FL) (August 24)
This is the obvious pick. Gameday has already announced they will be headed to the Camping World Kickoff Classic. Florida and Miami is the only notable game in week zero, so this is an obvious pick.

Week 1-Oregon vs. Auburn (August 31)
Gameday will usually go to the ABC/ESPN nightcap prime time and this Oregon-Auburn game will be that game. While Alabama is playing in Atlanta versus Duke, Oregon-Auburn should be the more intriguing match up. Oregon can’t get a blemish on their record or they won’t be headed to the playoff. Auburn can’t take a loss in a make or break year for Head Coach Gus Malzahn. This game should easily be the pick for game day in week one.

Week 2-LSU at. Texas (September 7)
Texas is officially back according most of the public and LSU is headed there. Austin would love to have game day versus an SEC powerhouse. A win for the Longhorns here could catapult them into the top seven teams in the country, and a win for LSU could mean that they have cemented themselves as legit college football playoff contenders.

Week 3-Clemson at. Syracuse (September 14)
This is easily Clemson’s biggest challenge in ACC play. College Gameday wants to include the reigning champs anytime they can so going to the Carrier Dome for this match up in a defacto ACC Atlantic championship will be a game everyone wants to see.

Week 4-Notre Dame at. Georgia (September 21)
While this game may be on CBS (Due to it being on Georgia’s home field thus CBS owning its rights), College Gameday will likely head to Athens for a key September out of conference match up. Notre Dame cannot afford a loss in Athens or they will be out of the playoff hunt. Georgia may be able to take a loss but they have the rest of the SEC to get through.

Week 5-Ohio State at. Nebraska (September 28)
This is the first time new Head Coach Ryan Day and Ohio State will be tested. Is Nebraska back? I guess we will see, beginning in this game and throughout the rest of this upcoming season. Nebraska and Ohio State should be the pick because of the hype around both of these new head coaches building up their programs again.

Week 6-Virginia Tech at. Miami (October 5)
If Virginia Tech and Miami be as successful as I think they will be, this game should be a pick made easy by ESPN and College Gameday. Because it will be an ACC contest, this game should be the ABC/ESPN prime time game, making the pick even more obvious to get the game between the two former Big East conference rivals.

Week 7-Oklahoma vs. Texas (October 12)
I don’t remember College Gameday not going to Dallas for this match up when both teams have at least been half decent. Oklahoma and Texas are the two favorites for the Big 12 so I see the winner of this game having a better shot at the College Football Playoff.

Week 8-Oregon at. Washington (October 19)
Another de facto division championship. Oregon and Washington could be the ABC/ESPN prime time game and it would be an obvious selection for game day if both squads were still in the top fifteen at that point.

Week 9-North Dakota State at. South Dakota State (October 26)
Gameday always picks an FCS game and picking two rivals including the team with easily the most wins this decade at the level (North Dakota State) is a no brainer.

Week 10-Georgia vs. Florida (Jacksonville,FL) (November 2)
Despite this game being on CBS, Gameday should pick this game. This game will likely determine who comes from the east division of the SEC and heads to Atlanta for the SEC Championship.

Week 11-LSU at. Alabama (November 9)
Gameday usually does not pick back to back SEC (thus CBS) games but LSU-Alabama has to be an exception. A week after the SEC East is likely determined, the SEC West will likely be determined with the winner of this game. That is why College Gameday will go to Tuscaloosa for this match up.

Week 12-Wake Forest at. Clemson (November 16)
There wasn’t a ton to pick from this week, and this is College Gameday’s biggest opportunity to go to Clemson. Wake Forest shouldn’t beat Clemson but they will be competitive versus the reigning champs.

Week 13-Penn State at. Ohio State (November 23)
This game will begin a tough strecth for Ohio State. Gameday should pick this game despite it being on FOX.

Week 14-Ohio State at. Michigan (November 30)
This is the obvious pick. “The Game” no matter what (maybe if both squads are unranked but that’s highly unlikely). So, I don’t see a way why College Gameday won’t be in Ann Arbor on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

2019-2020 season best five games in the Big Ten
1.Ohio State at. Michigan
“The Game” is always the biggest game in the Big Ten. Winner will most likely be in the thick of the playoff race yet again.

2.Michigan at. Penn State
This will prove if Michigan is for real and their biggest test before Ohio State.

3.Wisconsin at. Nebraska
The two most talented teams in the Big Ten west will fight it out for division supremacy.

4.Michigan State at. Michigan
Maybe behind Penn State, this is the Wolverines’s biggest test until thanksgiving weekend.

5.Michigan State at. Ohio State
Michigan State is and has been Ohio State’s biggest thorn in its side in the Urban Meyer era. No that Meyer is out of coaching, Ohio State fans should hope that Michigan State’s good play against the Buckeyes ends soon.

2019-2020 season best five games in the Big 12
1.Texas vs. Oklahoma
This will most likely be the first of two matchups this season. The winner will have a better chance at the end of the season to get the Big 12 a CFP team.

2.Iowa State at. Texas
The winner of this game should get to ten wins and a chance at a Big 12 title.

3.Baylor at. Oklahoma State
Both of these teams need this win to contend in the Big 12 with heavywights Oklahoma and Texas.

4.Oklahoma at. Oklahoma State
Bedlam could have some bigger implications in 2019 than you think. OKSU could spoil Oklahoma’s chance at a third consecutive season in the college football playoff.

5.Texas at. TCU
After TCU had a horrible season a year ago, they look to get a win and potentially upset a top ten Texas team mid-season.

2019-2020 season best five games in the ACC
1.Clemson at. Syracuse
Clemson’s second ACC game is its toughest in conference play. Syracuse’s stingy defense and improving offense should make it tough for Trevor Lawrence and his receivers to make an impact but I still see Clemson breaking through and winning this game.

2.Virginia at. Miami
The winner of this game will likely go on to win the ACC Coastal. Manny Diaz looks to get to the ACC Championship in his first year in Coral Gables, and Virginia looks to get to their first ACC Championship overall.

3.Virginia Tech at. Virginia
Whoever wins this game will have a real shot to win the ACC coastal.

4.Wake Forest at. Syracuse
Similar to VTU-UVA, whoever wins this game will be Clemson’s real competitor in the ACC Atlantic.

5.Duke at. North Carolina
This could determine who goes to a bowl game between the two tobacco road rivals.

chsports 2019 NFC East Preview:Eagles, Cowboys will likely be on top of division again in 2019

Team on the Rise

Dallas Cowboys
Adding Amari Cooper was cool. Keeping Dak, Zeke, and the aforementioned Cooper together, we learned this August, is going to be the hard part. If Dallas keeps their nucleus together, keeps their talented offensive line together, and their excellent young linebacker core together, expect Dallas to be on the top of the NFC East in years to come.

Team on the Decline

New York Giants
The Giants have been on the decline, and this year isn’t going to be any different. Trading away OBJ for no new receiving talent was pretty bad. I mean, now QB Eli Manning has no expierience to throw to. And Manning may not even be the team’s starter through a week or two in the year. It could be the talented Duke product, Daniel Jones, who was coached by David Cutcliffe in Durham. Cutcliffe, coincidentally, was the head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers during Peyton’s (Manning) time in Knoxville, and Ole Miss’s Offensive Coordinator while Eli was in Oxford. I’m getting off topic, but if Daniel Jones can become half (or a quarter) of what Eli was, pairing him with star Running Back Saquon Barkley could really tear down the division in coming years.

Rookies to Watch
Dwayne Haskins,QB,Washington Redskins:The Redskins were smart in drafting Haskins out of Ohio State, and apparently he’s been very impressive during the off-season. Technically Case Keenum, who was traded to Washington, is slated to be the starter, but after a few weeks, the job could belong to Haskins.

Daniel Jones,QB,New York Giants
I’ve already mentioned Jones in this post but Jones could get the start in week two or New York could wait and give the job to him when the team needs a new leader in the middle of the season.

Player to Watch

Ezekiel Elliott,RB,Dallas Cowboys
The main question for Elliott isn’t on the field. It’s if he will get a deal done with Dallas before the season. If he doesn’t get paid, Zeke will holdout the entire season. But if Zeke comes to agreement with the Cowboys, Dallas should be with Philadelphia as the division favorites.

Projected Standings
1.Dallas Cowboys 10-6
2.Philadelphia Eagles 9-7
3.Washington Redskins 6-10
4.New York Giants 4-12
