Brad’s 2021 College Football Preview- Bowl Predictions

Every summer since 2007 I have created an intricate set of college football predictions for each upcoming season. This year is no exception, as I will be using my blog over the next few hours to publish my 15th annual college football preview guide which will contain 19 entries in all. Without further ado, here are my predicted bowl match-ups for the 2020 season. Note, the parentheses next to the teams in the two CFP games represents that team’s predicted playoff seeding.

I’ve got four unbeaten teams in the playoff for the first time ever. I am predicting Clemson and Bama to both win their semifinal games and then the Tigers to beat the Tide in Indianapolis.
