Kirk Herbstreit has named these two teams as the favorites for the national title

A couple of familiar faces here.

Clemson just won the 2017 CFP National Championship Game and now everyone is making their predictions for who will meet in the next title game. We've already got an early top five from Kirk Herbstreit and now he's making his prediction for who will meet in the National Championship Game.

That's a pretty interesting prediction considering the two start the season playing each other in Atlanta as part of the Chick-Fil-A kickoff weekend. So Herbstreit is essentially saying that whoever loses that game will probably run the table and get into the playoffs at the end of the season.
