  • It is an exciting time of year as college football is right around the corner! Last year’s season ended in very dramatic fashion as it was the first year with a new playoff system for the BCS (Bowl Championship Series). Instead of the top two poll teams advancing, the top four advanced. The one seed plays the four, and the two plays the three. Alabama was the highly touted number one seed, a high octane Oregon was two, Florida State led by number one overall draft pick Jameis Winston at three, and a controversial Ohio State sneaking in at four.

    Ohio was using their third string quarterback and was ranked number 6 heading into their last game against the powerhouse Wisconsin. New quarterback Cardale Jones led Ohio to a dominant victory, which leap frogged them from 6th to 4th seed. Oregon was able to beat Florida State handily and Ohio pulled off an upset against Alabama. In the end it was Ohio who was able to hold off the strong Oregon offense and score in bunches to win by an impressive margin of 42-20.

    Looking to repeat, Ohio is ranked #1 heading into the season. They currently have a quarterback controversy as all three of the quarterbacks throughout last season stayed. Power houses TCU, Alamaba, Baylor and Oregon round out the top 5. Sadly, no teams from New England are ranked in the top 25, but schools like Boston College could make a huge impact by stealing a game from Florida State or another strong team.

    This particular college football season is set to be very exciting and interesting. The season is right around the corner and soon the upsets will begin to pour in. In the end, only four teams will make the BCS playoffs and one will walk away champion. Who do you think will win? Can any teams in New England make any noise?
