About 60 of them chose Oregon and the majority picked Alabama. There were even more people picking Florida State to win it all than Ohio State.Jared Stewart and DeJarnett were the only two entries to have the three big playoff bowls correct. Ohio State and Oregon in the semifinals and Ohio State as the national champions.Interestingly, Jared had seven picks wrong and still won.The key to Jared Stewart’s success?
