Week 2 of college football is all wrapped up, and the new projections for the College Football Playoff picks are here.
ESPN's panel of expert reporters have selected Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma as the best bets for a playoff berth, with OSU starting to edge ahead of the non-Alabama field.
Notre Dame is no longer a top choice after the team's sluggish game against Ball State. The Fighting Irish would leave with a 24-16 win, but created more questions than answers.
Early morning Biggest CFB Takeaways:— Peter Burns (@PeterBurnsESPN) September 9, 2018
Alabama is using the Contra Code with Tua at QB
Oklahoma is making the CFB Playoff
Georgia is freaking legit
Clemson is lucky it plays in the ACC.
Miss St needs more credit.
The Clemson Tigers fought off the Texas A&M Aggies to save their playoff hopes, while Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma and Ohio State continued to look like powerhouse schools.
Alabama sits at a firm No. 1, and will remain there until they prove otherwise. Beyond them, it's anyones game, but the Buckeyes look awfully formidable.
