Today was ESPN College GameDay's preseason preview show, and here are the predictions that the guys made. Just filing this away in case it's needed later.

First Things First

Lee Corso looked and sounded a lot better than he did a season ago. He seems completely recovered from his stroke now, and good on him. Here's to good health for the coach.

Boise State's National Title Hopes

Corso and Howard believe that an undefeated Boise State team will not make the national title game if there are at least two Big Six conference champions with one loss. Chris Fowler and Herbstreit were skeptical of that happening, but declined to make a firm prediction.
