Will there be an Alabama-Clemson title rematch? (1:52)

David Pollack, Paul Finebaum and Joey Galloway analyze the likelihood of having Alabama and Clemson rematch for the national championship this season after being ranked No. 1 and No. 1 respectively. (1:52)

The first college football game is still a few days away, and the total awesomeness of Kickoff Week won't sink in until the calendar has flipped to September.

But if you're looking for the ultimate college football spoiler alert, here it is: Our experts offer up their preseason predictions for what should be an epic 2016 season.

Crimson Tide fans, you may want to look away. Most of our 10 experts (writers Andrea Adelson, Edward Aschoff, Brian Bennett, Heather Dinich, Chris Low, Ivan Maisel, Ted Miller, Adam Rittenberg, Mark Schlabach and Mitch Sherman) don't see a Bama repeat.

Instead, six like Clemson's chances to get back to the title game and win this time. And seven think Deshaun Watson will dance off -- alongside his coach of the year contender, Dabo Swinney -- with the Heisman, too.
