The 2017 college football season is just a couple months away, and it's time to take a look at some of the movers and shakers during the offseason on the National Championship odds.
There hasn't been a ton of movement at the top for sure. Alabama remains the easy choice as the favorite to win it all at +400, though that's up a tick from where the Tide opened at +375.
The big move at the top comes with Ohio State. The Buckeyes landed a tremendous freshman class, as usually is the case with an Urban Meyer team, and that has leap-frogged them in front of Florida State into the No. 2 spot to win it all at +500. The Seminoles are still right there are +750, approximately where they were right at the end of last season.
Part of the reason why Ohio State has jumped up a bit is because Oklahoma has taken a big step backwards. Bob Stoops shockingly resigned early in June, a horrible time for a coach to leave a program. The Sooners dropped from +850 to +1600 on the National Championship odds, and the likelihood that they upset the Buckeyes at the 'Shoe on September 9 is now significantly less.
Another team taking a big jump in the right direction is Florida. The Gators still play in the SEC and still have a nasty opening game of the season at Michigan. However, if UF can survive that game, things might open up just a bit. There are five SEC home games this year after playing at LSU last season, and the Gators also got a huge boost from Malik Zaire transferring in from Notre Dame in June. Zaire is the best quarterback to step foot in Gainesville in quite some time, and he could be the difference-maker this season. The Gators are still longshots at 40 to 1, but they were +5500 at the end of last season to capture the National Championship.
Washington is quietly on the rise as well. Most will forget that the Huskies played in the College Football Playoff a season ago. They opened up at +4500 to capture the National Championship and are now +2800. Chris Petersen has a great returning quarterback in Jake Browning, and if he can take some big steps forward this year and perhaps challenge for the Heisman Trophy, there might not be a team in the Pac-12 that can stop these dogs from barking loudly once again.

2016 CFP National Championship Game - January 11, 2016 - Alabama 45, Clemson 40
Surprisingly, it wasn’t defense that won the title for Alabama in 2015, but an offense that took it to another level in the postseason under mastermind Lane Kiffin. After a 38-0 pasting of Michigan State in the semi-final, Alabama put up 45 points on Clemson and needed every last bit of that against a game Clemson team.
Jake Coker was great in the title game. Despite being seen as little more than a game manager throughout the year, Coker completed 64 percent of his passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson. This was after a rock solid performance against Michigan State and Coker deserves as much praise as anyone for Alabama’s title.
Coker’s main target in the CFP Title Game was O.J. Howard. Howard came to Alabama with a lot of promise in 2013, but never fulfilled that. He came into the title game as a tight end with two career touchdown passes and no 100-yard games, but was able to torch Clemson’s defense. Howard caught five passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns as Kiffin exploited Clemson’s weakness against tight ends.
It’s a good thing the offense showed up, because Clemson torched Alabama’s defense all night long. Deshaun Watson was electric and put up 478 total yards of offense and threw for four touchdowns against just one interception. Watson was the best quarterback in college football last season and showed that night. He was elusive in the pocket and occasionally scrambled for first downs and also threw darts to receivers in windows that weren’t very big. He will likely be the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft next year and this game highlighted why.
Nick Saban isn’t usually one for trickery, but his gutsy call to onside kick in the fourth quarter played a big part in winning Alabama the title. The Tigers were ahead of the Crimson Tide at the start of the third quarter and after Alabama tied it with 10:34 to go in the game, Saban called for a surprise onside kick, which Alabama recovered and Clemson never came back from. The Crimson Tide took the lead shortly after and stayed a score ahead for the last 10 minutes.
