2011 College Football Predictions

The college football season is less than two weeks away. As such, I thought I’d throw my predictions for the upcoming season up here, and it would also provide a forum for other folks to add their own predictions.

ACC: I don’t see anybody other than Florida State or Virginia Tech winning their divisions, especially with the questions around Miami now. In the end, I think the Seminoles will win the conference largely due to the experience they have at quarterback.

Big East: I really don’t see anybody winning this conference other than West Virginia. I don’t think it will be close.

Big 12: Oklahoma State and Texas A&M have a good shot I think, but I’ll take Oklahoma to take the conference. I don’t think Texas is quite back yet, but they’ll make a bowl again.

Big 10: Leaders and Legends are still ridiculous division names, but I think Nebraska will take the Legends, with Michigan State an outside contender, and Wisconsin will win the Leaders. I’ll take the Cornhuskers to win the conference entire.

Pac-12: Stanford with Andrew Luck is a strong contender, but I’ll take Oregon in the North. In the South, I think USC will have the best record, but since they can’t go to the conference title game I think that honor will go to Arizona State. Oregon will take the conference.

SEC: The SEC is still super strong: I’ll take South Carolina in the SEC East and Alabama in the SEC West. I think Georgia and LSU are contenders for their respective divisions as well. I’ll take Alabama to win the SEC.

In other news, I think Notre Dame will win nine games. Here’s a quick rundown of the other conferences:

C-USA: UCF, MAC: Western Michigan, MWC: Boise State, Sunbelt: Florida International, WAC: Fresno State

In the national title game, I’ll take Oklahoma against Nebraska, with the Sooners winning. I’ll also take Andrew Luck to win the Heisman.
