With many more schools striving for a chance to compete for national significance each year, the change from the BCS era to the College Football Playoffs has been a huge success.
Since it began, the playoff period has included some genuinely exceptional teams, such as the 2019 LSU Tigers and the 2020 Alabama Crimson Tide, as well as some of the greatest players in history, including Trevor Lawrence and Ezekiel Elliot.
It’s not because of bad defensive strategies that scoring in college football has never been this high, and offenses have exploded over the past ten years.
Two former players of the Crimson Tide have been included in PFF College’s All-college football team since the debut of the Playoffs in 2014. The team’s star players are ex-Clemson Tigers.
