Pull out the keg and slap ribs on the grill. College football kicks off tonight and itís time to throw down the gauntlet.

This is my list of top four of teams that have a chance to compete for 2014 national championship.

Oregon Ducks

South Carolina Gamecocks

Opposing offenses are not going to just let Clowney wreck their teams. He will face double and triple teams for most of the season. His importance will come in the leadership he brings and the opportunities he affords other players to find success. If Steve Spurrier can stabilize the offense, this team could be dangerous.

Ohio State

This team is picked to win a lot of games and I think the Buckeyes have a great chance to do just that. I do have concerns, like the Michigan game. Thereís nothing better for a Michigan team that is still rebuilding, than to spoil the hopes of their rival. This is a year that if the Buckeyes stay focused, could land they back in the national championship game.

Alabama Crimson Tide

Sabanís program is so well run that the best of the best college recruits compete to get the chance to be recruited by Alabama.

Saban once again, fields the best recruiting class in college football and will defend his title for the chance to three-peat.
