Say what you will about Kirk Herbstreit (and Ohio State fans have said a lot), but nobody can accuse Herbstreit of slighting his former team this year. His 2015 predictions are Buckeye heavy.
Here's how Herbstreit sees the conference races shaking out:
|BIG TEN||OHIO STATE BUCKEYES OVER WISCONSIN BADGERS|
|BIG 12||OKLAHOMA SOONERS|
|SEC||LSU TIGERS OVER TENNESEE VOLUNTEERS|
|ACC||GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS OVER FLORIDA STATE SEMINOLES|
|PAC-12||ARIZONA STATE SUN DEVILS OVER STANFORD CARDINAL|
Obviously, Herbstreit will turn some heads with those picks. Granted, he could be hit or miss, but the most likely outcomes are that he looks like a sage or a fool.
Here's how Herbie sees the playoff field:
|OHIO STATE BUCKEYES|
|ARIZONA STATE SUN DEVILS|
Of those four teams, Herbstreit thinks it will be The Ohio State Buckeyes that capture the 2015 crown. On top of that, he's predicted Ezekiel Elliott to win the Heisman Trophy.
Ohio State fans have had their quarrels with Herbie over the years, but it's doubtful any will pick bones with him over this slate.
