Jimmy Kimmel picks ASU — not Ohio State or Oregon — to win college football championship

Jimmy Kimmel gave an unexpected prediction for the college football championship game between the Oregon Ducks and Ohio State Buckeyes. The late-night TV host and one-time ASU student picked the Sun Devils to win it all in a clip posted on SportsCenter’s Vine account.

"I know they’re not in the game, but I’m going with the Sun Devils," Kimmel said.

That’s an easy way to avoid controversy.

Fellow late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon also took his title game prediction out of his own hands by allowing a group of puppies to predict the outcome. The puppies picked Oregon to win the title.

Overall, Oregon seems to be receiving a slight edge when it comes to college football experts as well as the oddsmakers in Las Vegas. The Ducks open as 6- to 7-point favorites, depending on the service.
