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.
National Championship Game
Desmond Howard: Alabama over Miami (FL)
Lee Corso: Nebraska over Florida ("just like 1995")
Kirk Herbstreit: Ohio State over Oklahoma
Howard: Alabama (over Georgia)
Corso: Florida (over Alabama)
Herbstreit: Florida (over Auburn)
Howard: Miami (FL)
Corso: Virginia Tech
Herbstreit: Miami (FL) over Boston College
Howard: Nebraska (over Oklahoma)

Herbstreit: Oklahoma RB DeMarco Murray

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.
