Fox analyst has Clemson as #1 seed in 2016 CFB playoff
Fox Sports analyst Tim Brando was on the Paul Finebaum Show on Monday afternoon and released his college football playoff prediction for the upcoming season.
Brando's four teams in the 2016 playoff were Clemson (#1 seed), Oklahoma (#2 seed), Michigan (#3 seed), and LSU (#4 seed). I think that Clemson would match up admirably against the hypothetical matchup with the power running game of LSU.
From the expression on Finebaum's face in the following picture, he was flabbergasted that Alabama was left out of the playoff prediction.
