Kirk Herbstreit reveals his College Football Playoff picks for 2017

Alabama fans can be happy with Kirk Herbstreit’s College Football Playoff picks — but not too happy.

Herbstreit revealed on Wednesday that he believes the Crimson Tide will be one of the four playoff teams again this year. However, he also has them losing to Ohio State in the National Championship Game.

Along with the Tide and Buckeyes, Herbie chose USC and Florida State to round out the College Football Playoff field. Of course, Alabama has been in the College Football Playoff in each of the tournament’s first three seasons — and the Tide is the preseason No. 1 team — so it’s no surprise that Herbstreit, along with many other critics, are expecting the Crimson Tide to be back again this season.

Herbstreit also has Alabama beating Florida in the SEC championship game again this year.

The popular ESPN college football analyst will continue to break down his picks, preseason awards and more when “The Herbies” air on ESPN2 on Wednesday night at 10 p.m. ET.
