An update

Hey everyone, the 2020-2021 college football season officially wrapped up after Alabama blew out Ohio State 52-24 in the 2020-2021 CFP National Championship.

cbhsports 2020-2021 College Football Playoff National Championship Preview

College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T
No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 3.Ohio State
Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, Florida)
Jan. 11, 8 PM ET, ESPN/ESPN App

Ohio State played their in their first complete performance of the season on New Year’s Day against Clemson. While, Alabama did not look so dominant against Notre Dame, they have in most of their games this season. In much of the media’s opinion Alabama has a top five QB, the best RB, and the best WR in the country. Thus, Alabama’s offense is and has looked like the best offense in the country. Ohio State QB Justin Fields might have a rib energy but he will have to tough it out in my opinion if Ohio State is even going to have a chance at winning. Ohio State receivers Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson have to be as good as how they played versus Clemson because to beat Alabama, historically you’ve have a have a great vertical offense. Also, Ohio State’s front seven has to be as good as it was Saturday night, to rattle Alabama’s offense just a little bit. Projected Score: Alabama 49, Ohio State 38

DeVonta Smith wins 2020-2021 Heisman

It took almost thirty years for another receiver to be named a winner of college football’s most prestigious player award. After an incredible season, Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith won the 2020-2021 Heisman Trophy over fellow finalists Mac Jones (Alabama QB), Kyle Trask (Florida QB), and Trevor Lawrence (Clemson QB). Smith took off for 105 catches, almost 1,700 receiving yards, and 20 receiving touchdowns after fellow star receiver Jaylen Waddle was sidelined with an injury. After winning the AP College Football Player of the Year Award, Smith became the first wide receiver to win the award since former Michigan wide receiver Desmond Howard won it in 1991, who now works for ESPN.

Texas hires Steve Sarkisian to replace Tom Herman

After Texas AD Chris Del Conte discussed the future of the football program with other presidents at the university, the University of Texas announced on Saturday morning the firing of head football coach Tom Herman. During four seasons Herman went 32-18 and will be replaced by Alabama Offensive Coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian has led one of the best offenses in the country at Alabama, and should bring in that mindset as he heads to Austin.

cbhsports 2020-2021 College Football College Football Playoff Preview (and New Year’s Six)

College Football Playoff

College Football Playoff Semifinal at The Rose Bowl Game Presented by Capital One
No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Notre Dame
AT&T Stadium (Arlington, Texas)
Jan. 1, 4 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

With the versatility of Alabama’s offense I find it hard anyone is going to stop them, especially a Notre Dame defense that surrendered 34 points in a blowout loss to Clemson. Notre Dame’s offense has to continually answer Alabama’s offense and it is hard to believe they will be able to respond every time. Projected Score: Alabama 52, Notre Dame 17

College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Allstate Sugar Bowl
No. 2 Clemson vs. No. 3 Ohio State
Mercedes-Benz Superdome (New Orleans)
Jan. 1, 8 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

Clemson had its first complete performance of the year in their revenge game win over then no. 2 ranked Notre Dame in the ACC Championship. Ohio State comes in after barely beating Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship. Anyway, in a rematch of last year’s playoff semifinal Trevor Lawrence outdoes Justin Fields and Clemson beats Ohio State for a second straight season to get a third berth in as many years in the national championship. Projected Score: Clemson 45, Ohio State 41

New Year’s Six

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic
Oklahoma vs. Florida
AT&T Stadium (Arlington, Texas)
Dec. 31, 8 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

Whether anyone likes it or not this game will be determined by the QBs and defenses. Florida QB Kyle Trask has been everyone’s Heisman pick for much of the season, while after a so-so start, Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler has been awesome for the Sooners. Known for their defense most of the time, Florida’s unit is not even an average group much of the sport’s media would say, it cost Florida a shot at the CFP. But, known for its historically bad defense the past few seasons, Oklahoma Defensive Coordinator Alex Grinch has turned the ship around on that side of the ball for the Sooners. Projected Score: Florida 38, Oklahoma 31

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl
Cincinnati vs. Georgia
Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta)
Jan. 1, 12 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

Many say, Georgia will dominate top group of five team Cincinnati. And, they could be right. Georgia has been terrific on that side of the ball with QB JT Daniels starting their last three games. But, maybe this Cincinnati defense can make plays to make it harder for Daniels and the rest of their offense. Projected Score: Georgia 45, Cincinnati 31

PlayStation Fiesta Bowl
Oregon vs. Iowa State
State Farm Stadium (Glendale, Arizona)
Jan. 2, 4 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

Oregon was not even supposed to be in the Pac-12 Championship game on December 18. They lucked out as Pac-12 North division winner Washington was dealing with COVID-19 issues. So the second place team went in there and dominated top fifteen ranked USC on the defensive side of the ball. Iowa State lost its first game since an opening weekend upset loss to Louisiana. Iowa State’s talented backfield Brock Purdy (quarterback) and Breece Hall (running back) should be the difference in the game. Projected Score: Iowa State 34, Oregon 20

Capital One Orange Bowl
Texas A&M vs. North Carolina
Hard Rock Stadium (Miami Gardens, Florida)
Jan. 2, 8 PM ET, ESPN, ESPN App

North Carolina should have a pretty decent chance in this game. But, with all of the opt outs for their bowl game, a hungry Texas A&M team led by veteran QB Kellen Mond and a stingy defense, Texas A&M has no reason to lose this game. Projected Score: Texas A&M 49, North Carolina 38

Boise State’s Harsin replaces Malzahn as Auburn head coach

Auburn announced Tuesday night that Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin would be its next head football coach. Harsin replaces Gus Malzahn, who coached on the plains for eight seasons. In seven seasons at Boise State, Harsin went 69-19 and won three Mountain West titles. Louisiana head coach Bill Napier and Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables both turned down the Auburn job after being offered it in the past few weeks.

Who I think should be in the CFP entering Selection Sunday

Despite the ongoing coronavirus, we got through another great college football regular season and, get this, conference championship weekend. So, here is who I think should be in at noon ET today.

1.Alabama (11-0)

Alabama played a pretty complete game last night in Atlanta in the SEC Championship against Florida, further cementing their spot at number one in the country. Alabama has three guys (THREE GUYS) who are elite and should have a chance at the Heisman Trophy in a few weeks-QB Mac Jones, RB Najee Harris, and the presumable favorite (by much of the media) to be the first receiver to win the award since Desmond Howard, DeVonta Smith. Alabama will happily take their spot in familiar New Orleans, Louisiana.

2.Clemson (10-1)
Let’s be honest. Had Clemson got QB Trevor Lawrence back for its game against highly ranked Notre Dame on November 7, the Clemson Tigers would’ve beaten Notre Dame and likely kept their top ranking all season. Many had their doubts about Dabo Swinney’s ball club entering the season. The offense lost top receiver Tee Higgins to the NFL Draft and fellow top receiver Justyn Ross to injury. But, playmakers at receiver like veteran Amari Rogers stepped up. Clemson’s young defense had questions. But, former five-star recruit Bryan Bresee stepped up, among others. Alabama and Clemson are the clear top two teams, but I know there will be mixed opinions at 3 and 4.

3.Ohio State (6-0)
I know what everyone is going to say. “Ohio State played half a season.” “Ohio State only beat a pedestrian Northwestern team by 12”. “Ohio State’s best win is versus Indiana.” “Ohio State will be the freshest mentally and physically because they’ve only played half a season.” All of these concerns make sense. But when the committee looks at it (and me, too) Ohio State is the Big Ten champion. That can’t go unnoticed. While Ohio State is not playing their best football right now, I believe that a few weeks of practice will get QB Justin Fields and his receivers back in sync. Yesterday, we saw Ohio State RB Master Teague carve up an awesome Northwestern defense. So, at this point, I think Ohio State will be okay, and should easily make it in the playoff.

4.Texas A&M (9-1)

Yes, I have Texas A&M in over Notre Dame. Clemson easily beat Notre Dame in Charlotte yesterday, which means that Clemson probably would’ve handled Notre Dame the same way back in South Bend on November 7. Texas A&M handled all of their SEC competition except for getting clobbered against Alabama by 28 points. Either way, the strongest conference in college football needs to get two teams in the playoff.

2020-2021 cbhsports College Football Conference Championship Week Preview (12/18/20-12/20/20)

Yo how’s it going everybody? I know I have not posted a lot but my goal (now that I am out for school for Christmas break) is too post as much as I can during the next two and a half weeks. Anyway, here’s you 2020-2021 College Football Conference Championship Week Preview.

2.Notre Dame Next Game: vs.3.Clemson

3.Clemson Next Game: vs.2.Notre Dame

4.Ohio State Next Game: vs.14.Northwestern

3.Clemson Next Game: vs.2.Notre Dame

4.Ohio State Next Game: vs.14.Northwestern

5.Texas A&M Next Game: at.Tennessee

6.Iowa State Next Game: vs.10.Oklahoma

Oregon at. 13.USC (Friday, 8 PM ET, FOX)

The Pac-12 Championship has always happened on Fridays during the CFP era and this year this no different. USC will get to host Oregon, as the ducks (3-2) replace one loss Washington because of COVID-19 issues within the program. There will be no shortage of talent on the field, though, as Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal has raided southern California and other places for elite talent on national signing days. For USC to even be considered for the playoff they have to hope that their trojans blow out Oregon, Notre Dame beats Clemson, Florida beats Alabama, and potentially more. Projected Score: USC 38, Oregon 34

14.Northwestern vs. 4.Ohio State (Saturday, 12 PM ET, FOX)

FOX gets to broadcast two of the first three conference championship games at the Power 5 level. Ohio State needs a huge win to prove that they are in the playoff, as a 6-0 record does not mean a whole lot to the CFP Committee. But, a Big Ten Championship does add a lot to their resume. Expect Ohio State QB Justin Fields to have a big day but watch out for Pat Fitzgerald’s Northwestern Wildcats. Projected Score: Ohio State 35, Northwestern 24

10.Oklahoma vs. 6.Iowa State (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ABC)

The Sooners are looking to avenge a close loss in Ames tomorrow. Ever since a tough loss to Louisiana-Laffayette, Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell has led his team to an 8-1 Big 12 record. What I am most excited for in this match up is the QB match up, as veteran Iowa State QB Brock Purdy matches up with (RS) Freshman Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler. Talented Iowa State RB Breece Hall shouldn’t go unnoticed as he has added a caveat to the Iowa State offense that Oklahoma Defensive Coordinator Alex Grinch and his defense should be worried about. Either way it goes, it should be a fun one at Jerry World tomorrow. Projected Score: Oklahoma 42, Iowa State 38

3.Clemson vs. 2.Notre Dame (Saturday, 4 PM ET, ABC)

Without elite QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson fell to Notre Dame in South Bend in double overtime. But now that Lawrence has returned, he should be the difference in Charlotte. The Notre Dame defense has to prove that they are elite by making stops at least every now and then against this Clemson offense. Cannot wait for this one. Projected Score: Clemson 52, Notre Dame 42

7.Florida vs. 1.Alabama (Saturday, 8 PM ET, CBS)

The SEC Championship Game moves from its normal 3:30 PM ET start time to primetime on CBS. Florida’s lackluster loss versus LSU last week might have halted their playoff chances, and even a win versus the Crimson Tide tomorrow would like not kick them out of the playoff picture or put them in it either. But either way, this game is for the Heisman Trophy. Whether the winner is Alabama QB Mac Jones, Alabama WR DeVonta Smith, or it is Florida QB Kyle Trask, it will be determined in Atlanta tomorrow night. Projected Score: Alabama 45, Florida 35

5.Texas A&M Next Game: at.22.Auburn

6.Florida Next Game: at.Tennessee

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of CFP Poll)

5.Texas A&M at. 22.Auburn (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ESPN)

All A&M has to do is keep winning and hope that Florida wins the SEC Championship in 2 weeks. Then, I think they are automatically in the CFP. Projected Score: Texas A&M 28, Auburn 17

12.Indiana at. 16.Wisconsin (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, ABC)

Wisconsin QB Graham Mertz through 5 TDs in their opening season win over Illinois. After Mertz and others in the Badgers’ program tested positive, the program and its games were put on hold for weeks, meaning they missed games that they could not make up. When they returned to action, they got an easy win versus an underachieving Michigan team, then a loss to overachieving Northwestern. Wisconsin’s Big Ten Championship hopes are on the line as they face Indiana, a team who has only lost to highly ranked Ohio State. This one will be fun from Camp Randall Stadium. Projected Score: Indiana 49, Wisconsin 45

6.Florida at. Tennessee (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)

Florida is on a crash course for an SEC Championship date with Alabama. Florida QB Kyle Trask and the rest of the gators should have no problems with Tennessee at Neyland Stadium. Projected Score: Florida 59, Tennessee 24

13.BYU at. 18.Coastal Carolina (Saturday, 5:30 PM ET, ESPNU)

ESPN College Gameday heads to Conway, South Carolina and the campus of Coastal Carolina for the first time ever. Coastal has dominated the Sun Belt this season on its way to a perfect 9-0 season. For BYU, they have also gone perfect in what many experts call a pretty easy schedule. It should be a fun one in Conway. Projected Score: Coastal Carolina 49, BYU 42

3.Clemson at. Virginia Tech (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)

With Clemson’s crushing defeat of a pretty decent Pittsburgh team a week ago (in Trevor Lawrence’s return), no one should expect anything but Clemson to go into Lane Stadium on Saturday and handle Virginia Tech. But another loss for the tigers means, that they are (likely) fully out of the college football playoff conversation. Projected Score: Clemson 49, Virginia Tech 28

Predicting the remaining three games on Arkansas’ football schedule

I’m sorry everyone for a prolonged break. I have been dealing with some things in my own life and wanted to take a little break. Still, be patient as I have exams coming up. My Arkansas men’s basketball preview will be posted at some point this upcoming week.

11/21
LSU

Many COVID-19 tests suggest that these teams come into this game thin. Both of these teams need a win for their bowl consideration, so “The Battle for the Golden Boot” will be fun. Arkansas gets out to an early lead and holds on with a late interception.

Projected Score:Arkansas 31, LSU 27

Projected Record: 4-4

11/28
at.Missouri

Arkansas defensive coordinator (Missouri graduate and former Missouri head coach) Barry Odom makes his homecoming as the hogs face Missouri. Arkansas makes a defensive statement in the fourth quarter and wins 35-21.

Projected Score:Arkansas 35, Missouri 21

Projected Record: 5-4

12/5
Alabama

Sam Pittman has the biggest challenge of his first season as head coach in the final weekend of Arkansas’ regular season. Nick Saban and Alabama will be the number one team in the College Football Playoff rankings barring an upset. An upset by the Razorbacks here would blow up the college football world.

Projected Score:Alabama 59, Arkansas 35

Final Projected Record: 5-5

Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)

Syracuse at. 18.North Carolina (Saturday, 12 PM ET, ACCN)

Led by Quarterback Sam Howell, North Carolina has sky high expectations in 2020. In this game, I believe UNC’s offense will obliterate Syracuse’s defense and get off to a hot 1-0 start in conference play. Projected Score: North Carolina 56, Syracuse 17

Duke at. 10.Notre Dame (Saturday, 2:30 PM ET, NBC)

In Notre Dame’s first game in the ACC, they get an inexperienced Duke team. QB Ian Book and the Irish’s stingy defense should carry them this game and more, setting up a huge match up with Clemson come November 7. Projected Score: Notre Dame 28, Duke 17

Missouri State at. 5.Oklahoma (Saturday, 7 PM ET, )

Tulsa at. 15.Oklahoma Sate (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, )

1.Clemson at. Wake Forest (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)

Hey guys… (Must read)

Hello everyone. Hope your week has gone well. In my transition to Arkansas and SEC only content I have become demotivated to put up a blog post three times a week. Thus, I will be taking a break through Sunday September 20. The only post that I believe will go up during my time off will be the 2020-2021 cbhsports College Football Week 1 Preview (I will likely change titles of these posts from week to the actual dates due to the ACC beginning two weeks before the Big 12 and SEC). I hope you stick with me through this break but to get a refresh and to get some new creative ideas in this blog, I think it is what is best for me and the blog moving forward.
