5 way-too-early bold predictions for 2023 College Football season as spring practices kick off

The first game of the 2023 college football season is currently more than five months away. Does that mean we can’t start making predictions for the upcoming season? Not even remotely!

Today, with spring practices kicking off across the country, we’re going to be making some bold predictions for the upcoming college football season.

There’s a very good chance that most of these predictions age terribly, but that’s the fun of making predictions this early. Without further ado, let’s get into the predictions.

1. A non-quarterback wins the Heisman Trophy Over the years, the Heisman Trophy has become a quarterback-dominated award. 

Since 2000, only four non-quarterbacks have won the award, with the most recent being Devonta Smith in 2020. Looking at the preseason odds, many expect this trend to continue in 2023.

2. Alabama OR Georgia makes the College Football Playoff, not both Normally, predicting something that just happened last season wouldn’t be very bold, but this is an exception. 

There have been two occasions, 2017 and 2021, where two SEC teams have made the College Football Playoff.

3. Penn State wins the Big Ten Penn State might be the team in the most unfortunate position due to its conference. 

4. Neither Utah or USC win the Pac-12 We’re staying on the west coast for this college football prediction, but this time expanding to the Pac-12 as a whole.

5. Deion Sanders leads Colorado to a bowl game in Year 1 In the blink of an eye, Colorado has gone from an afterthought to one of the most discussed teams in college football. 

That is largely due to the Buffaloes hiring former Jackson State head coach Deion Sanders to fill their vacancy.
