CFB Draft Kit: RotoWire Writers Make their Picks
CFB Draft Kit: RotoWire Writers Make their Picks

This article is part of our College Football Draft Kit series.

Week 1 is officially upon us, so we polled some of our college football beat writers to get their picks for the following: conference championship matchups (champs in bold), playoff teams, title game finalists, national champion and Heisman Trophy winner.

Three conferences produced consensus champions: the ACC with Clemson, the Mountain West with Boise State and the Sun Belt with Appalachian State. As for the national champion, Clemson got five of seven votes with Georgia and Alabama each pulling one vote. Only one writer, Nick Grays, does not have Clemson in the national championship. 

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa is the Heisman favorite, as he garnered three votes. 

Where did we go wrong? Let us know in the comments.
