The college football playoff officially kicks off tomorrow. In one semi-final match up we have last year's defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide battling against the Pac 12's champion Washington Huskies. In the Fiesta Bowl we have last year's national champion runner up, the Clemson Tigers, taking on the Ohio State Buckeyes. Bill Bender from the Sporting News joined Levack and Goz this week to break down this week's match ups. It has been almost a decade since Nick Saban has been leading the Alabama Crimson Tide football program. We posed the question to Bill if Alabama's dynasty has actually been good for college football. Plus we get Bill Bender's predictions on who he believes will win this weekend's match ups. Remember your home for the college football semi final match ups is ESPN Radio 1045 The Team. This year's national championship game will be played on Monday January 9th in Tampa Bay, Florida at Raymond James Stadium.
