He’s one of the most plugged-in reporters in the NFL, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter took some time to answer the question on every college football fan’s mind.
Schefter, appearing on SportsCenter on Sunday morning, said that he would put Alabama in the College Football Playoff over Ohio State. He cited experts such as Kirk Herbstreit and Paul Finebaum both having the Crimson Tide as a big factor in his decision.
Alabama did go 11-1 this year and did not surrender 55 points to Iowa, but the Buckeyes do have a better resume than the Crimson Tide. The other three playoff teams are expected to be Clemson, Georgia and Oklahoma.
The College Football Playoff committee will announce its decision at Noon ET on ESPN. Alabama has made the College Football Playoff in each of the last three seasons.
