Jesse Palmer hasn't made his preseason College Football Playoff picks yet, but he does have one prediction about Year 2 of the new postseason format.
"I just think it's going to get better this year," Palmer said.
The ESPN college football analyst and special contributor for Good Morning America is excited to see how the College Football Playoff grows after its debut last January.
"Last year, it brought so much excitement, especially at the end of the season," Palmer told Newsday on Wednesday during a call to promote the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which recognizes college football players for their off-field leadership and volunteerism.
Last year, it was Ohio State beating Oregon in the national title game, 42-20, in a game that averaged nearly 33.4 million viewers on ESPN. Florida State and Alabama also made the four-team playoff.
Said Palmer: "It popularized the sport, especially in the postseason. It was unprecedented, it was new, it was fresh."
