This could be some good news for Alabama fans.
On Sunday morning, ESPN’s College Football Playoff expert made her prediction for the top 4 teams to be included in the College Football Playoff rankings. Interestingly, Heather Dinich placed Alabama at No. 4, instead of Ohio State. She also slotted Clemson at No. 1, Oklahoma at No. 2 and Georgia at No. 3
My official prediction: 1. Clemson 2. Oklahoma 3. Georgia 4. Alabama.

Could this be a good sign for Alabama fans nervous about whether the Crimson Tide will earn that coveted fourth spot? Perhaps.
Dinich has been close to the College Football Playoff committee throughout the season, and she’s frequently featured on ESPN as an expert voice about the topic. So her views hold weight when discussing this issue.
Soon, we’ll learn if Alabama can edge out Big Ten champion Ohio State to make the College Football Playoff. Crimson Tide fans would love to see Dinich’s prediction come true.
