Although coronavirus has changed the 2020 college football season dramatically, we’re still going to get a National Championship game. As of now, oddsmakers love Clemson, Ohio State, and Alabama, but there are a couple of SEC schools looming.
Clemson is 3-0 with three dominant performances on their resumé. It’s highly likely that the Tigers make the College Football Playoff considering their weak ACC schedule. Their biggest test of the season is coming up this weekend. Clemson will host the upstart Miami Hurricanes, who are rising in National Championship odds. If Miami beats Clemson, look for their odds to dramatically change.
Ohio State still has yet to play a game, but they are staying steady at +250 to win it all. Much like Clemson, the Buckeyes will benefit from a light conference schedule. Of course, one loss could change everything, but Ohio State has to love their chances to make the College Football Playoff.
Alabama rounds out the top three favorites, but Florida and Georgia aren’t far behind at +1400. The SEC is going to be an absolute bloodbath and no team is really safe. Bama made quick work of No. 13 Texas A&M over the weekend but the schedule doesn’t get any easier from here on out.
Bama is going to Ole Miss this weekend, but then they have No. 3 Georgia and No. 14 Tennessee on deck afterward. Although the SEC is playing a conference-only schedule, Florida and Alabama won’t meet in the regular season. However, they could wind up facing each other in the SEC Championship Game for a chance to go to the College Football Playoff.
