Last season, McMurphy was among the nation’s most accurate prognosticators, correctly picking 3-of-4 Playoff squads. Both writers are picking Auburn to come out of the SEC and advance to the national semifinals this season along with TCU.

McMurphy went against the grain with his other two selections — USC and Michigan State. Schlabach likes Oregon and defending champ Ohio State.
