Clemson and Ohio State locked up last year in the CFP,with the Tigers coming out on top. This year an SEC analyst has the same 2 teams in the championship game. SEC Network and ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic predicted a rematch in the CFP final this season. He did so in an interviewwith Brandon Marcello from 247 sports.
Cubelic is picking Clemson and Ohio State to get back to the playoff, with Alabama joining them after a year hiatus and the Big 12 champion earning the final slot. When all is said and done, he thinks Dabo Swinney will have claimed his third national title.
“Clemson is winning the national championship,” Cubelic said. “I think Ohio State lost way too much up front, and it’s not just Chase Young. Nobody paid attention to what DaVon Hamilton and those guys did. They had a great defensive line around Chase Young and a solid group of linebackers around him, with one of the best corners in college football.
