The 2019 College Football Playoffs are almost ready to begin, so it’s time to prepare to stream the best college gridiron action of the season. Since the 2014 season, the sport has had a four team playoff, where top teams play two semifinal games and the winners face each other in the National Championship. In the first of this years’ semifinal games, the top team in the nation will face a team playing in their third straight Playoffs. You can stream this game and the eventual National Championship game on ESPN even if you’ve cut the cord.

2019 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl — LSU vs. Oklahoma preview
The LSU Tigers (13-0) are the top ranked team in all of college football, and the number one seed in the 2020 College Football Playoff. This position is well earned as the undefeated Tigers have victories over five teams that were ranked in the top ten in college football polls. They also won the SEC title, with the most competitive conference opponents including wins over Alabama, Georgia, Auburn and Florida. LSU’s starting quarterback Joe Burrow won the 2019 Heisman Trophy award as the most outstanding player in college football, with 48 touchdowns in 4,715 yards in 13 games. The Tigers are the odds on favorites to win the entire playoffs and claim the National Championship, where a $100 bet will net $125 in winnings. They are expected to be a difficult out.
The Oklahoma Sooners (12-1) earned their spot in the college football playoffs on the last possible day, but they find themselves in a familiar position. Oklahoma has been in sixth position heading into Conference Title weekend, but fourth ranked Georgia and fifth ranked Utah both lost their title games. Oklahoma beat Baylor for the second time this season in the Big 12 title game, and now they’re in. This is the third straight year that a 12-1 Oklahoma team has made the Playoffs and faced an SEC team in the semifinals. They lost each of those playoff games, but head coach Lincoln Riley is hoping this third time will be the charm, especially with former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts under center for the Sooners now.
