The college football season is starting to heat up once again.
Many people are focused on the players that are going to be selected in the NFL Draft.
But, spring football games are already starting to get underway for some colleges and universities.
One very interesting thing is which teams will be championship favorites next year.
The Georgia Bulldogs have won the last two national titles, and they are looking for the elusive three-peat.
But, a few challengers are standing in their way.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, Ohio State and Alabama both have a higher percent chance to bring home the title.
After losing the Peach Bowl in heart-breaking fashion to eventual champion Georgia, Ohio State is the favorite to win the title this season, according to ESPN Analytics.

Surprisingly, even the Texas Longhorns have made the list with a 6% chance of bringing home the title.
I don’t know if they will pull it off, but Texas does have the raw materials at this point to make it happen. https://t.co/qhY7TolETp

But, the Longhorns seem to be one of the most hyped teams each season before never living up to expectations.
Must we go through this with Texas every year? https://t.co/QyWZx1O6JS

When it comes to Ohio State, they took Georgia down to the wire in last year’s CFP semifinal game.
But, many of their fans seem to think that head coach Ryan Day is holding them back.
Ryan Day still the coach right? https://t.co/rXadxXCh7e

But given the elite roster that Ohio State seems to have every year, they should once again be in contention.

Just like Ohio State, Alabama has an elite roster every year.
Plus, Nick Saban is arguably the greatest coach in college football history.
But, until they or any team can knock off Georgia you would have to call them favorites once again.
The Bulldogs have been unstoppable in years past and they could be back on top next season.
