The most wonderful time of year!

No. I’m not talking about the holiday season. I’m talking about football season!

Both the college and professional football seasons are officially in full swing as of this past weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Reporters C.J. Brown and Andrew D’Amico’s weekly picks will be included in every post. They will both predict the outcome of every NFL game each week, and I will keep track of who has made the most accurate picks.

Here we go…

Duncan’s College Football Playoff Rankings – Week 2

1. Alabama Crimson Tide

Ho-hum. Another week, another win, another top ranking for Nick Saban’s dominant Crimson Tide.

2. Oklahoma Sooners

After their convincing win against a stellar opponent on the road, I believe the Sooners are the biggest threat to Alabama right now. Baker Mayfield is simply the best player in the nation.

3. Southern California Trojans

The Trojans are back! (Disclaimer: I am a USC fan). Sam Darnold and Co. silenced critics of their close win over Western Michigan with a thorough beating of the Stanford Cardinal.

4. Clemson Tigers

This is a tough choice between the Tigers and Penn State. But I’ll give Clemson the nod, as they have beaten a ranked opponent, and Penn State has yet to face a quality team.

Heisman Watch:

1. Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma – 715 yards passing, 6 TDs, 0 INTs, 83.6% completion

2. Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville – 771 yards passing, 5 TDs, 0 INTs, 64.7% completion, 239 yards rushing (6.0 ypc), 3 TDs

3. Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State – 35 touches, 359 total yards, 4 total TDs

Game of the Week: (3) Clemson at (14) Louisville – 8:00 PM ET – ABC

Lamar Jackson hopes to lead the Cardinals to a victory over a Clemson team that has played lights out defense through two weeks. Watching Jackson compete against the Tigers’ D will be incredibly fun to watch.

Prediction: Clemson 37, Louisville 27
