Hosts Braden Gall and David Fox take listeners inside the preseason College Football preview magazine.

 

The guys break down the top four teams in the preseason top 25 and how the Athlon team settled on our College Football Playoff Projections. Why did we put two SEC teams into the Playoff? Why did we pick Baylor over TCU? Is there any reason at all NOT to pick Ohio State to win it all? 

Will the Playoff Committee put two teams from the same league into the playoff or will it stick with conference champions?

The Ohio State starting quarterback debate rages on and the guys break down new Big 12 expansion rumors as well.
