College Football 2013 Conference and National Title Predictions

Nick Saban

With kickoff for the 2013 college football season just around the corner, there’s just enough time for one more set of predictions.

Athlon’s editors met before the preseason magazine was released to iron out the predictions after spring practice was completed. But there wasn’t a consensus on every conference title race or the top 25 rankings.

Louisville, Ohio State and Tulsa were the only unanimous conference title predictions, and there was plenty of disagreement in the Big 12, ACC, Big Ten and even the SEC.

Alabama is widely considered the favorite to claim the 2013 BCS title, but the Crimson Tide wasn’t selected by all four editors to play for the national championship. Ohio State, Oregon and Stanford also drew mentions in the BCS title predictions. 

Will the SEC's title run continue in 2013? Or will Ohio State, Oregon or Stanford end the SEC's dominance?
