SALT LAKE CITY – Spring football is done for nearly every college football program, so that means it is time to look ahead at the actual season that gets underway in four months.
Predictions have already started rolling in with many likely to be complete misses that no one will remember, but also it is a time to be bold and take stabs at what could be.
Trying to predict what four teams will be in the College Football Playoff before Halloween is tough enough but to do so in April is absurd but also fun.
ESPN put together a list of dark horse teams that could make a run at being one of the four teams invited to the College Football Playoff. The list starts off talking about USC because an early preseason list would not be complete without saying that the Trojans – or the Texas Longhorns – have a shot at a great season.
USC truly fits the mold of a dark horse playoff team, because no one see’s Southern Cal as a team that will turn it around from a 4-8 team to one that will be in the College Football Playoff.
