ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit picks Alabama to win CFP National Championship

Marvin Gentry - USA TODAY Sports

College football is back. 

After an offseason filled with the hottest temperatures to date and a lot of speculation, gridiron action starts today with Florida versus Miami (Fla.) in what’s being termed as “Week 0” of football.

More games return next week – including Alabama’s season-opener against Duke in Atlanta, Ga.

For some analysts, it’s never too early to start talking College Football Playoff. 

Kirk Herbstreit of ESPN released his top four seeds for this season – Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Texas – and has the Crimson Tide take it all. Following an embarrassing loss to the Tigers back in January, Nick Saban looks to erase that feeling and get his seventh title overall. 

The Crimson Tide returns an offensive roster with much firepower and a defense that looks to regain its respect as the nation’s most feared unit. With two new coordinators – Steve Sarkisian and Pete Golding – and a bunch of experienced assistant coaches, Saban is ready to show the world why he remains the greatest in his field.

Alabama has something to prove, but it is interesting that one major analyst already has it winning a national title for this campaign.
