Sometimes you need to take a mulligan.

CBS Sports released its “second-chance expert picks” for the remainder of the 2016 college football season, which includes both SEC divisions, the SEC Champion and the College Football Playoff top 4.

Alabama was a unanimous decision for the No. 1 CFB Playoff ranking, as well as the SEC West Division title and conference championship.


Tennessee was selected by six of the seven experts to win the SEC East. Only Tom Fornelli picked Florida, currently in first place, to win the division.


For reference, only three experts — Dennis Dodd, Robby Kalland and Ben Kercheval — picked the Vols to finish first in the East in CBS Sports’ initial predictions in August. Only Jon Solomon picked Florida to win the division.

Chip Patterson was the only expert to pick against the Crimson Tide in August. Patterson selected LSU as his favorite to win the division with Alabama ranked second.
