2014 college football predictions
The 2014 college football season -- aka Year 1 of the College Football Playoff -- is upon us, with Texas A&M thumping South Carolina on a night of Thursday kickoffs.

But the Tigers have a lot of work to do to get to Atlanta, starting Saturday at Ole Miss and, if they beat the Rebels, ending next week at home against Texas A&M. James Franklin returns from injury to retake his spot under center. Will he lead the Tigers to the two wins they need?
