2014-15 College Football Championship picks! #cfbplayoff #cfbchampionship #ohiostate #oregonducks

It seems like yesterday we were just starting this 2014-15 season of college football, and yet here we are with one game left.  The first ever FBS college football playoff champion will be crowned in Arlington, Tx Monday night in the matchup between Oregon and Ohio State.  Along with a game of this magnitude comes more picks than you could possibly handle (or at least a lot).  Anyone and everyone ESPN can trot out there on one of their networks wants to get a pick in on this game, so we will be tracking them and updating this post with the most up to date picks available.

Our current group of picks from our experts are standing at 28 to 20 in favor of the UNDERDOG Ohio State, including a final parting shot from Brady Hoke who predicted “Ohio” to beat Oregon Monday night.  Check back over the next 48 hours leading up to the game for the latest updates to see who your favorite (or most hated) personality picked in the biggest game in college football history.

Week 15 2014: Championship week picks are graded, results are in! #cfb #cfbplayoff

Week 15 promised drama and it delivered after the championship games were complete and the playoff seeding was announced.  You may love it, or you may hate it, but you didn’t come here to see my opinions on the college football playoff.  You came for picks and results, so here they are.

Winners this week include David Pollack (4-0), Greg McElroy (5-0), Lou Holtz (4-1), Stephen A. Smith (5-0), Robert Smith (5-0), Jon Berger (4-1) and Jason Sehorn (5-1).  This week’s champion will be Phil Steele, who got things back on track in a big way after last week, going 10-1 on the week this week.

Losers this week included Todd McShay (1-2), Heather Dinich (0-2), and Brett McMurphy (1-2).  Since nobody had a horrible week, the three of them can share the honor.

Lee Corso went with the underdog road team Kansas State over Baylor for his headgear pick, and that did not work out too well.  Charley the Cat took Baylor, so she gains another game on Corso.  Special guest picker Mike Singletary had a pretty good week at 5-2, but had perhaps the worst pick of all time calling for Iowa State to upset TCU; a game which ended 55-3 in favor of TCU.  Jennifer had another winner this week at 5-3 as well.  Everyone else is somewhere in the middle, so check out the full slate below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
